    3N

    Summer 1

    In English the children have been learning all about information texts. The children completed lots of research about their current topic ‘Italy’ and used this to create interesting information texts.

    In Maths, we have been focusing on Statistics this term. We learned all about frequency charts, tally charts, pictograms and bar charts. We gathered data in our class about our favourite fruits and used this information to create our own pictograms and bar charts. We’re beginning to learn about the mental and written methods for addition and subtraction.

    In Religion, our topic of Energy teaches us all about the Ascension, Pentecost and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

    In Computing, the children have been learning all about emails. The children are enjoying creating emails to send to Miss Noone.


    Spring 2

    Spring term has been an extremely busy, but enjoyable, term for 3N. We have really enjoyed World Book Week, our school trip to the London Wetland Centre and our class assembly about Holy Week.

    In Religious Education, our topic of Giving All teaches us about the importance of giving to others. We learned all about Lent and Holy Week and thought about what Jesus teaches us about giving.

     

    In English the children have been developing their writing skills through learning about Myths. We have learned about the features of myths and the children produced some exciting myths in their extended writing!

     

    In Maths, we have been focusing on Geometry this term. We learned all about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We then created our own shapes using play dough and straws, it was great fun! We also learned about lines – horizontal, vertical, parallel and perpendicular, turns and patterns.

     

     

    Spring 1

    In Religious Education, our topic of Journeys teaches us about the different seasons in the Liturgical Year.  The children have been learning about times of preparation, such as Lent and Advent, where we get ready for special occasions in the Church Year.  We have also learned about celebrating special events such as the Birth of Jesus and the death and Resurrection, where the priest wears White as a celebration.  The children have also learned about the celebration of Jesus’ teaching during Ordinary Time.   

    Our Topic has been to explore the distant past and the children have been considering conditions for people during the Iron Age.  We have been looking at ways that information from the distant past can be found and the children learned about their roundhouses and Iron Age Artefacts. The children had great fun creating factfiles and presenting them to the class.

    In English the children have been developing their writing skills through learning about mystery stories and writing their own mysteries.  We have learned about commas and using inverted commas. The children produced some thrilling mysteries in their extended writing!

    In Maths, we continue to learn about related skills of multiplication and division.  The children have been learning both together, to show that one is the ‘inverse’ of the other, and that both multiplication and division are also related to adding and subtracting.  We have also learned the vocabulary that describes these operations. We love learning our new times tables website - Times Tables Rock Stars!

    During PSHE, the children had great fun practising different ways to be active. 

     

    The children also really enjoyed their trip to Greenford Library :)

We learned all about the Sacrament of Baptism, we had great fun presenting our own television shows telling everyone about Baptism. We are beginning to learn about Advent and Visitors. We will be learning about the story of Martha and Mary and how we can welcome visitors into our homes.

    In English we have been learning about report writing and the key features of non-fiction reports. We used our learning about animals including humans in Science to write really interesting reports about human and animal skeletons. We are now beginning to learn about poetic techniques and writing some of our own poems using our new knowledge.

    In Maths we have been learning some mental and written strategies for adding and subtracting. These skills are so important because we can use them every day.
