Topic Overview

In Nightingale class this term, our class text is Leon and the Place Between.  This is a lovely book about Leon, who visits a magic show with his friends and gets transported to a place where magic lives.  We will base our writing around this text and will be focusing on settings, writing our own stories and persuading people to come to the circus.

In our Cultural Understanding sessions we will explore the history of the circus and investigate countries that circuses visit.  We will also be learning French with Madame Howard.  We will be learning about forces and blogging in Exploration and Discovery, and in Health and Well-being we will look at the roles of school council and other councillors, and how to play invasion games in PE.

During Spiritual Understanding sessions we will continue to learn about the Christian faith and our school values.

Mr Collier will deliver Y4 maths and Miss Firkins will deliver Y3 maths.
