Year 3: Autumn 2 Topic Web - Lights, Camera, Action !


Science: We will investigate how shadows are formed, and can be changed. We will classify materials as transparent, translucent opaque or reflective.


RE: We will learn about what different religions believe about god. We will take part in the Christingle service and make Christingles.


Geography: We will use atlases to discover the location of European countries and to find and name their capital cities.


PSHEE: We continue to talk about emotions, and managing behaviour. We also explore how we can make safe choices, and be good friends and communities


English: Our main genre this half term is playscripts, and we will be reading plays together. We will learn about creating vivid characters. We will turn a modified traditional tale into a playscript. The punctuation of direct speech will also be used. We will also read and learn some performance poetry.


Maths: Partitioning (splitting numbers into hundreds, tens and ones) continues to be a key skill, and the first step in doubling, halving and adding groups of two digit numbers. We will also compare and place numbers on number lines. We continue to build fast recall of 3 and 4 times tables and describe lines and angles.


Drama: Our class governor, Mrs Lucas, will be helping us work collaboratively to produce a piece of work ready for our year group assembly.


Design & Technology: We will make shadow puppets, to link to our science theme. We will also use simple mechanisms to make moving pictures.


Computing: We will use our Espresso Coding package to produce simple animations, and learn about sequencing in coding.


Music: The songs we will be learning will reinforce topics in PSHEE and RE. We continue to copy rhythms and pitch patterns.
