Wish You Were Here

Year 3:

Our new topic ‘Wish You Were Here’ is going to focus on map reading, using Atlases and Ordinance Survey Symbols and coordinates. We will be reading the book ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.

For our launch day we will be creating postcards, decoding a message in Morse code and creating other arts and crafts to help create our classroom display.

Geography will be our main focus as we look closer at the Northern Hemisphere and the countries that surround us here in the UK. We will be looking at names of countries and their capital cities as well as using maps to help us gain more of an understanding. Once we have a solid understanding of maps, coordinates and Ordinance Survey Symbols we will create our own island with different features!

Our ICT project for this topic is looking at algorithms and ensuring a clear understanding of how instructions need to be clear and in the correct order. We will use an app on the iPads to give clear directional instructions and see how we can begin to debug and problems by looking carefully at the instructions we have given.

PE: Athletics – we will be preparing for Sports Day. Please note children will need an outdoor PE kit.

RE: Encounters – we will be looking at what makes a place sacred.

PSHE (Jigsaw): Relationships

We will invite parents and carers to attend our Summer Festival at the end of this term to celebrate our topic with us.
