Welcome to Class 3 with Mr Sussex and Mrs Jones
Here are our new members of Class 3!
What your child will be learning this term:- Class 3 - curriculum newsletter (Summer 2021)
After a strange academic year we were very pleased to welcome back all of our pupils and get back to some normality. Before Christmas we enjoyed our History topic of the Mayans. The children learnt lots of new facts and information but particularly enjoyed making their own Mayan masks and playing the Maya ballgame!
They also loved our electricity unit of work in Science. They children used all the knowledge they had learnt about circuits and components to design, make and evaluate their very own electrical quiz boards, don’t they look great!
Unfortunately, the Spring Term wasn’t quite the term everyone had planned and the country went into another lockdown. However, all the children, including those in school and at home, continued to work extremely hard and loads of fantastic work was sent in. We had daily Maths work being completed, lots of amazing writing and stories being done, geography quizzes, science investigations, lots of art work and even presentations being made – it was certainly a busy term!
When the children were eventually allowed back into school, we cracked straight on with learning to make up for lost time. Here are some examples of information pages the children created about a chosen animals:
So far in this term we have been learning about poetry. We have looked a range of poetry including Haikus, acrostic, Kennings, ones that rhyme, ones that have repeating patterns and much more. Here some examples of poems written by the children, including one written about diversity, which is something we have been discussing a lot in class.
In computing we have been learning about data. Our topic began with leanring about QR codes. The children had great fun making up their very own QR Code scavenger hunt, where they had to create QR codes, add clues and hide them around the school. The children particularly enjoyed running around the class and playground hunting down other group’s clues!
