An example from last terms fantastic writing in Year 3
Our Curriculum Vehicle for the Spring Term- Bag Design.
During our Maths lessons this term, we will be focusing on measuring length. The units of measure that we will be using are millimetres, centimetres and metres. We will be finding the equivalences between these lengths and adding and subtracting lengths.
Within our English lessons this half term, we will be taking part in a live unit called 'Chat Show Challenge.'
During the unit the children will take part in a Town Hall debate and chat show, discussing the age of the railway in role as a character from history. As a class, we will consider the pros and cons of railways and the different opinions that were held by people at the time. We will use a range of questioning techniques, including probing questions aimed to elicit certain responses. In the debate, the children will put across their points of view about the idea of a railway being built. The unit will conclude with a chat show, to discuss the feelings of the characters once the railway has been built.
