Welcome back to Term 3!
We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are ready and raring to go in Term 3!
This term our science topic is Animals including Humans which lends itself nicely to build on our learning about living things last term. Please see our science knowledge organiser for details on the key vocabulary and learning that the children will embark upon.
In D.T our topic will be Food! We will be learning about different fruits and vegetables, understanding how to safely prepare them, designing our own fruit salad and finally making it!
We will begin this term’s literacy with Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be using the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach to commit the model text to heart before innovating it to write our own twisted traditional tale. We can’t wait to share them with you!
This term, P.E will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has their kit in school with indoor non-marking plimsolls/trainers for the hall.
In Religious Education this term we will study the religion of Judaism and why the Torah is so important to Jews. The children will find out about some of the features and practices of Judaism, explore some of famous stories in the Torah, think about what it means to keep kosher, and investigate how the Torah teaches and guides Jews in their daily lives.
In Computing we will be looking at the importance of online safety. The children will learn about their ‘digital footprint’; begin to identify possible dangers online; identify websites suitable for their age; know what to do if a website makes them feel uncomfortable and know how to safely search for information online.
We also hope to begin a Times Table Rockstars leader board this term. If you have any issues logging in or accessing the programme, please speak to one of us as the children will be expected to practise several times per week as homework from now on.
Thanks for your support,
Mrs Bdesha and Mrs Hood
