We are the Courageous Crocodiles!
Mrs Cooper is our class teacher and Mrs Smith and Mrs Watson are our teaching assistants.
We are very excited to be in year 3 and are looking forward to a busy Autumn Term.
Our thought provoking question for the Autumn is:
Did Britain change after the Battle of Britain?
Our thought provoking topic question this term will enable us to learn about if life changed after the Battle of Britain. We will learn about what World War 2 was and where it took place. We will understand the purpose of the Battle of Britain and how it was fought. Also, we will find out about rationing, effects of air raids, causes of evacuation and the role women played during World War 2.
During the second half term our learning will be based on physical computing and we will use a program called Crumble.
Our RSHE work will centre around 'Healthy and Happy Friendships' We will learn about what makes a good friend, the importance of personal space and ways to develop resilience. During the second half term we will focus on 'Similarities and Differences.' We will discuss ways to value and show respect for others including considering the feelings of others. Additionally, we will discuss about gender stereotypes.
In both half terms we will complete lessons on equality, inclusion and anti-bullying.
Art / DT
the lines, tones, shades and patterns created by chalk and oil pastels. We will use this knowledge to create fiery backgrounds for a Blitz scene. As part of our DT work, we will explore the foods people were encouraged to grow at home during WW2 and we will design and make a dish comprising of these ingredients.
During this term the children will know about and understand religions and worldviews. Included in this we will know how Christians and Muslims pray and understand the meanings of symbols, words and actions in prayer - for both Christians and Muslims.
The children will learn vocabulary based on these topics. This will include greetings, counting to 20, giving opinions and learning animal names.
Our music themes are 'Let your spirit fly' and during the second half term 'Glockenspiel Stage 1'
The Let your spirit fly unit allows children to sing, find the pulse and add simple improvisations alongside the unit songs.
Glockenspiel Stage 1 allows children to learn how to play a range of notes from memory and notation and create their own composition.
