Our Learning

Please use the links below to learn more about the topics we will be learning about this year.

Autumn - World War II
Imagine having to leave your home and everything you know. In year 3 we think about what it would have been like for the children of London to leave their city and be evacuated to the countryside. Using a range of primary and secondary sources, including fieldwork and recollections of people alive at the time, we find out about the effects of World War II on the children and families in our local area. An evacuation to Horton Kirby really makes this topic come alive.

Spring - Ancient Egypt
This is the first history topic where we will begin to think about and celebrate the achievements of an early civilisation. The wonders of Ancient Egypt will come to life through a variety of sources and activities, including conducting our own archeological digs and handling artefacts at the Horniman museum, as we imagine opening an Egyptian tomb. By the end of this topic we will be able to describe the features of life in Ancient Egypt and answer questions such as why and how the pyramids were built.

Summer - The Amazon Rainforest
This term our classrooms are filled with the sights and sounds of the amazing Amazon Rainforest. We will become explorers as we find out about the rich variety of wild life and plant life that the rainforest is home to. We will be able to describe key aspects of the Amazon’s physical geography and give reasons for its climate. We will focus on environmental issues and suggest possible solutions in a class project.


In place of in-school learning meetings for this year, please watch our video presentations from the class teachers.

PE

In line with current government guidlelines children should not bring in non-essential items from home we therefore ask that children to wear their PE kit to school on their PE days instead of bringing their PE kit to school in their bag.

Please ensure that your child you child comes to school wearing the correct PE kit on the days they are scheduled to have a PE Lesson.  To find out more about the PE kit please click here.

When reading with your child discuss what he/she is reading. This will help to develop comprehension and reasoning skills as well as enjoyment. Please click here for a list of question to aid you when reading with your child.
