Welcome to Garnet!


 

Mrs Harris, Miss Duval, Mrs Wilmshurst and Mrs Bishop are the adults in Garnet Class and look forward to helping the children with their learning.

 

 

We hope you had a fantastic summer holiday doing lots of fun things and are now ready to get back to our learning. This term our topic Excellent Egyptians.This will be  History and Geography based, looking at where Egypt is what it is like now, as well as what it was like in the past, such as the Egyptians’ ideas and beliefs. This will feed into our art and DT lessons, where we will be planning and creating an Egyptian death mask!

 

Our writing lessons will also be directly linked to our topic: writing instructions; explanation texts;

job descriptions; setting descriptions and non-chronological reports all to do with Egypt.

 

In Guided Reading, we will be learning and using skills in comprehension; inference; vocabulary; prediction and answering different question types.

 

In Maths, we will start by learning about place value in 3 and 4 digit numbers; finding 10, 100 and 1000 more/less than a given number; adding and subtracting and identifying different angles, line types and symmetry in shapes.

 

Computing is all about digital literacy: communicating work and ideas, as well as online safety.

 

In Science, our focus will be electricity and light, using scientific findings to answer questions and using results to make conclusions or ask scientific questions. The children will be constructing simple series circuits; using switches; testing conductors and insulators; recognising the need for light in order to see; understanding eye protection and recognising the differences and causes of shadows and reflections.


In PE, we will be learning handball and football, using appropriate tactics such as maintaining possession of the ball and passing to team mates. We will also be doing dance, where the children will plan and perform sequences of movements, learning to move fluently and expressively, using different speeds and levels.

 

In R.E., we will be looking at the relationship Jews have with God, as well as the meaning of Christmas and Learn4Life is all about ‘my school’: settling in and making relationships with new friends; and ‘healthy bodies, healthy minds’: identifying and expressing feelings appropriately, as well as making healthy lifestyle choices.

 

Our language focus this term is Spanish, where the children will learn to understand a range of spoken phrases; ask simple questions and give basic information and give responses to questions about every day events.
