Welcome to Class 3! We are Years 4, 5 and 6.

We have an exciting and packed Autumn Term planned with lots of fun and interesting lessons to learn about. 

English: We will be reading a book called 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. It is based in the Victorian times and is all about a boy called Jim Jarvis who runs away from the workhouse. Jim's gripping adventure is based on the true story of the orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children's refuge. We will also be doing weekly spellings, grammar and reading comprehensions. 

Maths: We will be following the White Rose Maths Scheme and this half term will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, statistics, perimetre and area. 

Topic: Victorians. We will be learning all about Queen Victoria and her family, inventions, children's jobs, school life and games they played, leisure time and clothing.    

RE: Life is a journey. Why do people go on pilgrimages? In what ways can life be compared to a journey? In what ways does having a faith give meaning and purpose to the journey of life? 

Science: Sound - Listen Up. We will be learning about vibrations, pitch and volume. We will carry out investigations to learn how sound waves travel to the ear as well as how our ears work.  

ART: Meet the Artist (Designers). The children will explore designs and motifs by William Morris and Vivienne Westwood. They will have a go at designing a wallpaper pattern, a chair and a jacket! They will learn how to use drawing to devlop ideas. 

DT: The children will learn about the designs of different bridges and have a go at making their own bridge. 

ICT: Animation. How to make a movie! 

PE will be on a WEDNESDAY (netball/football skills) FRIDAY (gymnastics) - smart PE kit in school for those days please. 

Music: A singing unit called 'Touch the Sky.'
