Throughout the Summer term we will be covering a wide range of topics. In our Come and See we will be studying three different themes: New Life, God's People and Giving & Receiving. We will also learn about Islam this term.
In Science we will be covering two topics; the first focuses on classifying living things and learning about different habitats, the second looks at how and why we need to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Our Geography topic is about mountains with special focus on the Alps. For Design and Technology we will be deisgning and making a bug hotel to use in Ecoland and we will also be baking bread rolls. In our Art lessons we will be developing our skills in sculpture. Our PE lessons will focus on improving our fitness through circuit training, ball skills including fielding and batting, and we will also be getting ready for sports day.
Homework for 3BH will be given out on Fridays. It will consist of three activities and should be handed back into class no later than the following Friday. Each week children will have 10 spellings to learn. The spelling test will be on a Friday morning. There will also be times tables to complete alongside a specific piece of maths relating to our learning that week. There may also be one other activity which may be English, Topic or related to Come and See.
Children also need to be encouraged to read every night (15-20 minutes). Please try to hear them read as much as possible and ask them questions about the text or explain words/phrases they are unsure of. We ask that you sign the reading diary at least three times a week to show that your child has read at home.
PE in 3BH will be swimming on a Monday morning and a multi-skills session on Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that girls have their hair tied up and that they don't come to school with earrings in on these days. We will be doing PE outdoors sometimes so please ensure your child also has their outdoor kit in their PE bag. We ask that your child has their PE bag in school every Monday and they are free to take it home to wash on a Friday.
