Share the Learning

Each term we will provide a brief overview of the learning taking place in our class. Please find attached this terms information.

Family! In RE we are looking at what being part of a Family means to us. We are one Family who love and care for each other. We will be looking at our own family trees and Jesus'. We will be reflecting on the part we play as members of God's family. We have asked the children to discuss their own family trees with you.

In Science we have been looking at classification keys. We explored our outside space with our classification keys to see if we could identify the different invertebrates! We found lots of creatures and used our keys to for the unusual ones! 

We are Explorers!

This term we will become explorers by finding out all about the world around us through science, history, geography and art. We will be focusing on Polar discovery and what it would be like to explore the unknown!

Children will be given spellings and times tables to learn every Monday.  They will be tested on Friday and you will be informed of their results weekly.  You will find updated lists of the spellings on this page each week.

We will be recapping the x4 and  x8 tables with division facts- this is a recap- by the end of year 3 children should have quick recall of the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 tables-  KEEP PRACTISING! 

Spellings:  This week we are looking at topic words 

          Melt    freeze      tries      aloud      allowed      subtraction     addition      adventure
