Autumn 1 – Wellbeing

This half-term, our whole school topic is Wellbeing. 

LITERACY

Our class text this half-term is ‘The Tin Forest’ by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. We will be basing our narrative writing on this as we learn and develop our writing skills. We will be writing our own imaginative story based on this book where we will be creating our very own dream settings! We will also be writing an Information Text about sports as well as writing our own healthy recipes (and making them of course!).

PSHE

In our PSHE lessons, we will be learning all about the mental and physical benefits of an active lifestyle and the importance of building regular exercise into daily routines. We will also learn about the risks of an inactive lifestyle.

SCIENCE

This half-term, the children will be learning about Animals including Humans.  We will construct and interpret a variety of food chains and identify producers, predators and prey. Also, we will be describing the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans and identifying the different types of teeth in humans and their simple functions.

RE

In our RE lessons, we will be discussing the question: ‘What can we learn from religions about what is right and wrong?’ The main religions we will be studying in this unit are Christianity and Judaism. We will be learning about the Golden Rule, the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes and how these can provide guidance that people follow to help them live their lives.

PE

The children will be learning the skills of Invasion Games. They will be learning skills associated with attacking and defending, such as running, jumping, throwing and catching. The children will be developing these skills individually, in pairs, in groups and then applying them in team games.

3H will be going swimming on Thursday afternoons.

COMPUTING

In Computing, we will be learning how to use search engines effectively and appropriately to find specific information. We will be able to identify how we use the internet and the many services it can offer.
