Welcome to year 3a - the beginning of our Key Stage 2 learning journey. We are all set to embark on the final half term of the year.
Our day starts at 8.50am and ends at 3.20pm. In that time we are learning lots of exciting new things and preparing ourselves for Year 4.
In English we are reading Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley and we will be writing a character description, a persuasive letter and diaries from different perspectives.
In maths we are focusing predominantly on addition and subtraction this half term.
Our main topics for this half term are Animals Including Humans in science, where we are learning about food and nutrition and skeletons and muscles; and Ancient Egypt in history, where we will be adding to our knowledge of the civilization, learning about what life was like, the sources of evidence which have survived and what Egyptians believed about life after death.
In RE we are learning about prayer and worship in the Christian faith and considering the question 'Do people need to go to church to show they are Christians?'. Our PSHE topic is Changing Me.
Our PE continues to be swimming at the Pelican Centre on a Thursday afternoon. I am loving watching the children enjoy these sessions so much and seeing the amazing progress they are making.
In music, our last Charanga unit is Reflect, Rewind and Replay where we will continue to develop rhythm and pulse through song, and develop our improvisation and compositional skills.
