Welcome back to the second half of our Spring term. A term that, so far, has challenged us, stretched us but also kept us hopeful and positive. The joy we see experienced by the children during the video meetings is so heartwarming. It reminds us that community, friendship and, above all, love, is what keeps us motivated and engaged.
Our key concept this half term is importance. We will be explaining and justifying our understanding of this idea via some shared activities and philosophical stimulus provided by two beautiful books: Good People Everywhere by Leanna Gillen and Thank You Heroes by Patricia Heggerty and Michael Emmerson.
RE learning focusses on Understanding Christianity - Salvation. This topic includes sharing ideas about the events of Holy Week, building on our learning of the Easter Story and understanding why Christians choose to remember this time of year. Our weekly worships from the Rev. Lerys (St. Mary’s Church, Eversley) will continue to be shared by the YouTube link on the daily learning timetable.
Our curriculum is underpinned by our concept importance and contains other topics. The children will continue to utilise a range of scientific equipment during our forces learning. In Geography, we will be finding out about the main topographical features in locations where the Romans settled in ancient Britain. In DT, we will be researching, designing and creating Ancient Roman catapults. We will definitely enjoy testing these! During lockdown, PE learning will only happen within school. For this, we will choreograph, practise, perform and evaluate dances based around forces. In Computing, the children will understand the wealth of ICT they use in the wider world. Our PSHCE focuses on recognising positive and negative impacts on our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. During this current time, this content has never seemed more vital. To continue our French learning, we will encounter vocabulary for colours and Easter as well as responding to simple questions. Listening to and engaging with folk music will be the foundation of our Dragon Song Music topic this term.
We are so, so proud of all that our superstars in Picasso Class have achieved during the last half term. Never before have children of this age been expected to show the resilience and motivation that has been necessary in these lockdown times. I do, truly, hope that they will grow up knowing what an immense undertaking this was for themselves AND their families and that this undertaking was one that was noticed, appreciated and admired by everyone in Year 3. Please do be kind to yourselves, be safe and be proud.
Stage One is short term Remote Education Support (RES) as most families who are awaiting Covid 19 test results are off for 2 to 3 days.
Below you will find:
- Concept Curriculum for the current half term.
- Maths and English – We will be providing 3 activities i.e. up to 3 days work, that links DIRECTLY to the Maths and English planning the class will be following that week.
- 8 (KS2) Ways at Once. This provides a range of work that fits the current class concept and work that would be covered over the half term in class. This covers most of the Foundation Subjects and will change each half term when the concept changes.
We would expect that if the child is not symptomatic that this work will be completed. If your child is poorly, we would ask you to make the judgement as to what you feel they can or can’t do.
