Class 5 - Miss McNaught

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.

 

Summer 1

Skeletons

Topic

This half term, our topic is  Skeletons. In Science we are going to be investigating plants before moving on to investigate the skeletons of animals including humans. In art this half term we will be creating our own sculptures based on Giacometti's artwork. Finally, in Computing, we will be focusing on Microsoft Office and algorithms.

 

Literacy - Writing      

First, we will be learning to write instructions for a science experiment based on our plant learning.  We will then move on to write adventure stories, using adjectives, similes, adverbs and other ambitious vocabulary. Before the half term is complete we will also be focusing more on the work of Dick King - Smith and writing a recount as the Hodgeheg in the form of a letter or a diary entry. 

 

Literacy - Reading

 

For this half term we will be focusing on solidifying the reading skills we have learnt so far over the course of the year and we will do this by looking at The Hodgeheg by Dick King - Smith as our whole class text. We will also develop our knowledge and breadth of vocabulary during these sessions to help us improve our writing. 

 

Maths

 

During this half term we will be focusing on fractions and time. Please encourage your child to tell the time on both analogue and digital clocks at home as this will support their learning in school. 

 

In mental maths, we will be focusing on: 

  • Counting on and back in 100s and 50s 
  • Counting on and back in multiples of  3, 4 and 8
  • Learning and practising the 3, 4 and 8 times tables as well as previously taught times tables (2, 5, 10)
  • Telling the time.
