Term 3

 

Vicious Vikings!

 

This term we will be travelling back in time turning the school into a real life museum! Each Key Stage will be focusing upon a different period in time.

In Rabbits we will be learning all about Vicious Vikings. This is a great topic in which the children will have the opportunity to learn all about Viking lifestyles and even plan a Viking invasion of the school!

 

Throughout the term, Rabbits will also be producing their own Viking artefacts, such as shields and Viking longboats which will be displayed throughout the school in our museum.

In Maths the children will be finishing their topic on Addition and Subtraction and will be moving onto Multiplication and Division. Please encourage your child  to practise their times tables at home as this will really help in class. All children should have a login to Times Table Rockstars and are expected to play regularly at home to develop their fluency skills.

 

In Literacy, we will be reading and rewriting the story of Beowulf. The children will be thinking carefully about description to set the scene and describe characters. Rabbits will then design their own mythical monster to innovate and rewrite their own version of the story.

 

Forest School

 

Rabbits will be having Forest school sessions this half term on a Wednesday afternoon. Please double check with Miss Burton if you are unsure when you child's group is.

Term 2

 

Amazing Africa 

The children will be learning all about countries located within Africa, looking at the different climates and lifestyles and will even listen to some African music!
