Welcome to Class 5's page!
We are a class of year 3 pupils and we are all very excited to be coming back to school. This year, our teacher is Miss McNaught.
This half term, our topic is Iron Man. In Science we are going to be investigating forces and magnets before moving on to investigate light. In DT we will be building our own iron men in teams, focusing on design and evaluation. Finally, in Computing, we will be focusing on search technologies.
Literacy - Writing
First, we will be learning to write a character description of the Iron Man. We will be using adjectives, similes, adverbs and other ambitious vocabulary. We will then be writing a setting description based on The Tin Forest where we will compare two contrasting settings. We will build on our work on similes and adjectives, using expanded noun phrases and prepositional phrases in our writing as well. Finally, we will be writing a newspaper report based on the Iron Man.
For the first term, our key foci will be handwriting, improving our spelling and ensuring our writing is accurately punctuated and makes sense. We will be using lots of orally sentence rehearsal and self and peer assessment to support this.
Literacy - Reading
For this half term we will be focusing on our inference skills. We will use a number of texts and images throughout the half term to improve our skills and our class book for the half term will be Iron Man. We will also develop our knowledge and breadth of vocabulary during these sessions to help us improve our writing.
During this half term we will be focusing on multiplication and division. We will first recap the timetables taught in KS1 before focusing on our 3, 4 and 8 timetables.
In mental maths, we will be focusing on:
