Term 3

Topic
 

How hard was it to invade and settle in Britain?

 

This term we will be learning about why the Anglo-Saxons invaded Britain and the key features of Anglo-Saxon settlements. We will also be learning about artefacts from the time, the risk that Vikings posed to the Anglo-Saxons, how missionaries spread Christianity and the qualities needed to be a monarch in 1066.

 

English

 

This term we will be looking at imaginary worlds. We will be basing our writing on the fantastic classic novel, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’. Our focus will be on getting children to use their imagination and to use exciting vocabulary. The children will be creating their own fantasy character and describing it, describing a setting and writing their own narrative story set in an imaginary world. Our main punctuation focus will be using commas and apostrophes correctly in sentences.

Maths

 

The main focus this term will be fractions. The children will need to know equivalent fractions for halves, quarters and thirds. They will then be adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator, crossing one whole. We will also be covering co-ordinates, area, multiplication and division (using short division). 

 

How you can help:

These areas could be reinforced by using different mathematical language that asks the children to use all four calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Also, referring to all the topics above in real life contexts that apply to the children.

Please practise times tables with your child. The link below is a very useful resource for practising times tables online:-

Science

 

 

We will be learning about electricity and identifying appliances that run on electricity. We will also be constructing a simple series of electrical circuits and identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers.
