Welcome to the second half term of Spring. This half term our topic is based around our “How to survive a storm”. We will be exploring the Geography, Science And Art work related to extreme weather including tornados and floods.
In Literacy, we will be focusing on narrative writing including “Leon and the Place Between” and “The Storm”. We will focus on using expanded noun phrases and figurative language to make our writing descriptive. Furthermore, we will continue to improve the flow of our writing by including fronted adverbials and conjunctions.
We will explore the differences between weather and climate and use this information to create our very own weather report of the UK. We will then begin to explore extreme weather around the world comparing it to our own climate.
In RE will continue to explore what Christians believed and compare it to other religions.
In Science, we will begin to fully explore ‘light’. The new National Curriculum, introduced in 2014, requires children in Year 3 to understand that they need light to see and that light is reflected from surfaces. We will explore shadows and learn how shadows are formed when a light source is blocked by an opaque item. Finally, will consider the dangers of looking directly at light-sources (mainly the sun) and how they can protect their eye.
We have PE every Friday morning with Mr Sidebottom.
Library is on a Tuesday afternoon- remember to bring your book back even if you intend to keep the same one.
Homework is given out on a Tuesday and expected back the following Monday.
Spelling are given out on Monday ready for a test the following week.
