Welcome to Class 3

We are a mixed Year 5/6 class. Mr Boyle is the class teacher. Mrs Boot is the Teaching Assistant who supports the children five mornings a week.

We have a double session of PE on a Tuesday. Please come to school in your PE kit on a Tuesday.

By delivering exciting opportunities to meet every child’s need, fantastic learning takes place, which the children are very keen to talk about to visitors to our classroom. Every Tuesday, we have a Music Teacher come in to teach us how to play the guitar.

Our Topic

Our current topic is called ‘Where in the World is London’. During this half term we will be learning about where London is within the UK and learning how its physical and human features differ from other locations such as Harrogate and how it differs from other countries around Europe. In Art, we are learning how to draw portraits and use oil paints as we are aiming to create a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II based on the artwork of Pietro Annigoni. The ‘Hook’ for our topic was an experience using Now Press Play where we went on an adventure to meet the Queen of England

In English we are reading the text A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and watching the short film The Deathly Hallows. Our Science Topic ‘Light’ and we will be learning about how light helps us see and about reflection. This half term in maths we are learning a method for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and how to find fractions of numbers.

In other subjects we are learning how to create a Gymnastic performance and create our own game in PE. In PSHE, Class 3 are learning about how we can look after our Mental Health and Wellbeing and what decisions people have to make with money. In computing, we are learning how to create a spreadsheet and use formula.

Please look at the Medium Term Plan (MTP) for Autumn 2 for a more in depth breakdown of what we are covering in class and the skills that the children will be learning this half term.
