Dive into a World of Make Believe

Year 3:

Our new topic ‘Dive into a World of Make Believe’ is going to start with research and timelines in history and move towards using our design technology skills for cooking.

For our launch day we will be inviting children to dress up as make believe and roll up to our very own circus inspired day! We will explore circus tricks as well as painting and singing!

The initial focus for this topic will be on history. We will be using thoughtful questioning skills to begin to research to find answers. Timelines will play an important part in our learning as we order events and begin to use our maths knowledge to work out how long ago things happened. We will explore what sources mean in history and how we can gather information about the past from these.

Our Design Technology project will be based around cooking. The children will work together to research, plan, design and make a healthier snack for the circus. They will be tasting different foods and learning about food hygiene as well as how to be safe when using utensils, such as knives, in the kitchen.

PE: Gymnastics

RE: Remembering – we will be looking at why we remember and looking at some major faith festivals.

PSHE (Jigsaw): Being Me in My World

We will invite parents and carers to attend our end of topic celebration in the week commencing 11th November (date and time to be confirmed)
