At Newhall, we believe in and encourage happy and mentally healthy children and staff. Each week we will introduce a value to inspire us. This week it is...
We can be independent by...
Science - We're asking "How do rocks shape our world?" We want to know about; different rocks and what they are used for; fossils and where they are found; layers of soil and what they are made up from. We will become rock detectives and get stuck in to some experiments.
History - We are asking "What was life like in the Stone Age?" We will be looking at what tools and food was used, and what life would have been like in the Stone Age.
R.E. - We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn about the Hindu celebration of Diwali. We will listen to the stories of Hindu children and find out how they gain a sense of belonging from their religion.
Maths - We will start the half-term by looking at number and place value for 4 sessions (order of numbers, greater and less than, recognising and counting in hundreds, tens and ones). We will spend one session per week catching up on the missed curriculum from year 2 - this will include shape, statistics and word problem solving.
English - We are starting the term by writing super sentences using adjectives and conjunctions. We will be linking into the history topic for the term and will base our writing around the stone age. We will be reading from Stone Age Boy, Dave’s Cave and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth (do NOT get soap in it’s eyes!).
