Term 3

Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful rest over Christmas with family and friends. Term 3 is a busy one as we start off the year 2020 with plenty of learning.  

Our topic this term is based around the book ‘Cogheart’ by Peter Bunzl. It is fictional book set in 1896 in a Victorian England but with an alternative history: steampunk, mechanical animals, clockwork servants and silver airships. It follows the adventures of a heroine called Lily sets out on a journey to find the truth about her father.

We will be developing our descriptive writing and building on our grammar and punctuation knowledge using the book as inspiration.

 

In design technology, we will be creating clocks using a variety of tools and learning new skills to help us. Our science topic of electricity will help us to create circuits and develop our knowledge of symbols used as well as investigate the brightness of bulbs and volume of buzzers with the number of cells in the circuit.  

 

In RE we will be learning about Islam and how Muslims show commitment to their faith. The children will be continuing to develop respect and inquisitiveness of other faiths and traditions.

We will be learning about different cultural customs throughout history in our geography lessons.

Our school value this term is courage and we will be discussing this in whole school and key stage worships.
