Class 3 Topics - Summer 2018

 CLASS 3 – DENVER V. C. PRIMARY SCHOOL – SUMMER TERM 2018

 
 
Dear Parent/Carer,
 
Welcome to the Summer term, here is a flavour of what we will be working on this term.
 
Literacy: This term we will begin our literacy sessions by looking at the nonsense poetry of Edward Lear and Spike Milligan
 
Numeracy: We are working on measurements, shape and data handling.
 
Science: We will be finishing our work on Rocks and then later in the term we will look at Plants.
 
Design and Technology: We will be investigating structures, big and small.
 
Computing: This term in our lessons we will be looking at Internet Safety.
 
History: We will continue to look at the achievements of the earliest civilisations.
 
Geography: During our Geography sessions we will be comparing our country to another in Europe.
 
Art and Design: We will look at sculptures and the artists who have created them.
 
Music: The children will be developing their analytical skills by listening to a variety of music and discussing issues such as instrumentation, tempo, time signature and tonality.
 
PE: We shall be taking part in net games and then athletics in preparation for Sports Day.
 
RE: This term we will be looking at Islamic beliefs and customs.
 
PHSE/Citizenship: We will be looking at Being Unique and Caring for the Environment.
 
French: We will be exploring the French words for pets, brothers and sisters and French customs.
 
Homework: Maths homework is set on Monday to be returned on Wednesday. English homework is set on Wednesday to be returned on Friday. Spellings will be set on Friday to be tested the following Friday. Some children find it extremely beneficial to read these with their parents/carers and your support in this is very welcome. Additionally if your child is a developing reader it is important that they get as much support at home as possible through reading and sharing books.
 
If you have any queries about your child please feel free to contact me. Sometimes conversations at the beginning of the day are not easy as lessons need to be started promptly so after school meetings would be preferable.
 
I look forward to the exciting term ahead with Class 3.
 
Mr Bonham
