Welcome to Picasso - Year 3!
Picasso Class are a class of friendly, caring and fun 7- 8 year olds plus our teacher Miss Church and our LSAs Mrs Lewis-Nelson and Miss Iamsamang.
We are moving on to our final half-term in Year 3 and it is just amazing how rapidly this year has passed. Over this year, the children have grown in their independence and love of learning and we will continue to fully embrace the good humour and laughter that characterises Year 3.
The first half of our summer term was one spent with lots of time outside, enjoying our stunning surroundings and continuing to build bonds with our classmates. Picasso Class were particularly thrilled to move to group table spaces! Our unity concept day was such a special, wholesome time for us all: P4C, Korean writing, rainforest masks, songs, clay RE activities and our eagerly anticipated balanced diet picnic for PSHCE resulted in happy, tired and full children (and adults!).
Our concept this half-term is duties. This builds on our concept from last half-term, unity, as we seek to improve our understanding of how we can all work together in our own personal and collective duties.
RE learning focusses on the Gospel, particularly exploring what kind of world did Jesus want? We will understand that Christians believe that Jesus challenges everyone about how to live. Children will also be identifying the gospels and appreciating the principle of love within the Christian faith.
Duty is our key concept across the whole curriculum. We are linking our Science learning about animals and humans to understanding our wider duties to our wider world. Miss Church is eagerly anticipating our DT topic of bread, particularly the tasting part! We will be evaluating existing products, designing our own recipe and baking our own bread. In History, our duty to commemorate Founder’s Day will relate to our focus on Victorian inventions. In PE, we will be looking for the next Naomi Osaka or Roger Federer in our tennis sessions. During our football lessons, supported by Supersportz, Miss Church will be watching carefully to see who might one day have the honourable duty of playing for the mighty Southampton FC in the future…Using PurpleMash’s 2Animate program, children will become increasingly proficient in adding images in frames to create movement, using sounds and backgrounds. French this term will concentrate upon week days and months. Our year of Music learning is concluded nicely with our unit entitled Reflect, Rewind and Replay. These sessions will encompass instrumental music from the Classical, Baroque and Romantic periods; traditional music from countries around the world and modern pop music. Our duty towards ourselves in maintaining our own health is addressed in PSHCE, as is basic first-aid.
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.

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.
