After Half term the children will be looking at persuasive writing. Class Rufford will be writing letters to Mr Graham to persuade him about matters within the school.
Just a quick reminder that the children need to keep practicing their weekly spellings and their Year 3 spellings. Thank you.
As part of our Maths Learning we try to make our lessons as fun and as practical as possible. The topics we have been exploring this half term are problem solving, including addition and subtraction. The children have been focusing on their understanding of the Year 3 formal written methods.
Please make sure you are aware of your child's 'Instant recall facts' for this academic year. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for more details.
Our current topic is Prehistoric Britain. Over this topic we will exploring what life would have been like in Prehistoric Britain. We will use our art and food design skills to build our own models of Stone Age. We will also spend time exploring our role play area, a Prehistoric Cave.
Our Autumn Term topic was World War One.
(Please visit our beautiful tribute to 11.11 outside Year 5 and 6)
During the Autumn Term we will be focusing on key historical points from 1914-1918. We will be exploring how the war began and the impact it had on the soldiers and the people left at home. Although this is an emotional topic, it is a highly thought provoking and the children find it very interesting!

However, it is important the children have their PE kits in school every day so we can be flexible.
