Lightmoor Village Primary School

Class 3

Lightmoor Life

In Spring term 1, we will be focusing on the classic text: The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

English

We will be taking inspiration from the book to write a number of fiction and non-fiction texts, including: A character description of the Iron Man, a diary entry and a poem to name a few.

Maths

We will be finishing off division by looking at the short division method before going onto time and fractions.

Science

In science, we will be focussing on plants. The children will look at naming the different parts of a plant and their function. They will also work in partners to investigate how either the cold, no water or no light effects the plant.

Geography/History

In geography/history, we will be using different maps of the Lightmoor area to investigate how Lightmoor has changed over the years. The children will also look at the squatter’s cottage and how it is an important part of Lightmoor’s heritage.

Brass Band

The children will continue to have brass band lessons on most Thursdays throughout the Spring Term.

PE

In indoor PE, we will be focusing on Outdoor Adventure Activities and team building games.

In outdoor PE, we will be focusing on improving our football skills through practising passing, shooting and dribbling. The children will have many opportunities to practise these skills in games.
