AUTUMN TERM 2013
This term we are learning about the Tudors as our overall topic.  'Sound' and 'Insulators and Conductors' are our Science topics.
Any reading you can do around these would be really valuable.

We will be looking to make educational visits to the Peterborough Cathedral and Burghley House in Stamford, both of which have parts built in the Tudor Times.
We will be continuing to learn the violin this term.

A REMINDER:
You should be reading for 20 minutes each night and doing spellings.  You will get three pieces of home learning each week.

PE kit must be in school on a Monday (indoor) and Tuesday (outdoor).

We will be setting some home learning on-line.  For those who don't have access to the internet at home, we will be starting an after-school club soon.

Personal Development:  

 

Your child will be learning about a range of factors which contribute to a healthy lifestyle, including healthy eating, physical activity, sleep and use of free time. They will revisit the Eatwell plate which they will have been introduced to in Year 1/2 and use it to plan healthy, balanced meals. They will learn about the physical and mental benefits of regular exercise and will consider the relationship between physical activity and nutrition. They will consider influences on people?s food choices and think about the benefits to our health of different kinds of food. They will be encouraged to think about the wider meaning of a healthy lifestyle, including sleep, dental hygiene, leisure activities and emotional health and wellbeing. They will be given the opportunity to plan and prepare healthy snacks and / or meals, perhaps when learning about religious festivals or enjoying a class or whole school celebration. They will become more aware of the healthy choices they can make and will be encouraged to think about their own lifestyles and whether they can make changes to become healthier.
