Meet Our Team
Our topic this half-term is 'Wild and Wonder'. In our topic lessons our focus for the start of the half-term will be animals including humans. This will involve looking at animals that have skeletons and learning how their muscles help to support and protect them and allow them to move. We will also be doing artwork on a weekly basis to develop our painting techniques. We will begin by looking at creating spooky night time scenes.
In English we will be focusing on the new novel 'The Wonderling' by Mira Bartok. The book introduces us to a character who is half human and half fox! This will allow us to develop our descriptive writing skills by using ambitious vocabulary and phrases. We will then move on to narrative writing by thinking about our own half and half character. This will involve lots of imagination and wonder!
In Maths we will be introducing measurement which will also allow us to consolidate the addition and subtraction taught so far. We will then move on to multiplication and division.
Our P.E days this half-term will be on Mondays with Mrs Sneddon (netball) and Wednesdays with Velocity.
Our first topic to start the new school year will be ‘The Swinging Sixties’. We will explore this exciting decade by learning how life for people in Britain changed, the new fashion and music of the sixties and learning about some significant events including the Space Race and England winning the World Cup final.
In English we will be focusing on writing non-narrative texts such as biographies of famous people from the sixties and non-chronological reports to demonstrate our understanding of this great decade. We will be ensuring that all of our skills developed during Year 2 are fully embedded as well as learning new skills such as beginning to organise writing into paragraphs.
In Maths we will be introducing our new times table ‘Olympics’ challenge (more will be revealed over the next few weeks). We will be working lots on developing our understanding of place value in 3-digit numbers and begin looking at new ways to calculate.

We will also begin to learn to play the recorder on a weekly basis!
P.E will be on Mondays with Mrs Sneddon and Fridays with Mrs Fox. Full P.E kit should be worn at all times. Earrings need to be removed and long hair should be tied up. Thank you.
