In IPC our topic for the first half term is 'Temples, Tombs and Treasures' this is a history based topic and will focus on the Ancient Egyptians. For the second half of the half term our topic will be, 'Bright Sparks', this will focus on the Year 3 Science curriculum and the topic of light and dark. 

In ICT we will be completing a unit on Media, learning to add our own sound effects to Egyptian Poetry and creating our own animation and in P.E we will begin football. Our R.E question this half term is 'What different religions believe about God? We will be focusing on the religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. 

To support your children please read their reading book with them and sign this to say this has been completed. We will aim to listen to all children read once per week. 

You can also help your children by practising their spellings and times tables each week. Practising times tables now will help children prepare for the times table test which is statutory in Year 4. 

You can practise these using PIXL and Sum Dog. 

Super Six homework will be given on the First Friday of each half term and will need returning by the last Friday. 

Thank you for all of your support.
