Welcome to Picasso - Year 3!
Picasso Class are a bunch of friendly, caring and fun 7-8 year olds, plus our teacher Miss Church and our wonderful LSA Mrs Sibley. Mrs Shelton or Mrs Jacob will be covering Miss Church’s out of class planning time.
Wow, one term already completed as Key Stage 2 children! Your children have impressed me with how quickly they have used new routines and their consistent kindness and super effort in learning.
Our key concept this half term is families. We will be considering what this means to us personally and how our school values fit in with this understanding. Children will make cards to show that we care for our global family. We will send these to a children’s centre in Uganda, a family in Guatemala and nursing homes in Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire.
RE focusses on the Jewish festival of lights – Hanukkah. Our learning journey will see the children really immerse themselves in this family tradition. Your respectful children are showing mature and sensitive attitudes to our daily worships too.
Our curriculum revolves around our concept and also looks at other areas. In Geography, we will be closely studying our local area and enquiring into the different types of land use. In Design Technology, we will be researching, designing and creating our own Roman catapults. We are boosting our footballing skills in our outside PE sessions. For our indoor PE sessions, we will be dusting off our (imaginary!) dancing shoes as we choreograph and perform dances inspired by the Stone Age. In Computing, we will be considering how we send appropriate emails safely. Our P
RSHE centres on caring friendships and online relationships. It really is vital that our young people are aware of how to protect themselves and others in our increasingly digital society. We are building on our French vocabulary from last term and will also be introducing festive words to allow children to start using simple grammatical structures. Glockenspiels will be used in our Music learning with a topic that specifically focusses on using this piece of tuned percussion. Rocks and soils is our thought-provoking Science topic. Children will never look at their streets in the same way again!
The Autumn newsletter sent out in September will give you more information about what we will be doing this term.
