Show my learning - Autumn term
Usually at this time in the term we would invite our families into the academy to come and see all of the children’s wonderful learning. Due to the current restrictions this is not possible at the moment.
However, this will not stop us from showing you all of the exciting things we have been doing this term at Harris Academy Tottenham. Please see the film above. We hope you enjoy!
We will practise phonics, reading and spelling in our Read, Write Inc. lessons and reading lessons and will write in a variety of genres in our Literacy lessons. We will focus on some interesting stories and information books too.
In Maths, we will be working with numbers to 100 thinking carefully about place value and practising our additional and subtraction skills.
In History, we will be learning who the first humans in Britain were and where they came from. We will explore further about the Stone Age and understand what life was like. In Geography, we will be using and interpreting maps and finding out what information we can gather.
In Science, we will be learning about forces and magnets, whilst looking at cave paintings in art and learning all about different structures in Design and Technology.
Our PE lesson will be on Wednesday. Please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit to school on this day and remember to write your name in all the items.
Swan class have worked exceptionally well this term. In Maths we learnt about telling the time and applied the knowledge in real life situations - including telling the time when we have different subjects throughout the day, our break-time, lunchtime and home time. The class also explored division and multiplication and place value, whereby we worked with large numbers and answered reasoning questions.
In English we explored different types of literatures and topics such as Black History month, in which we were able to write fascinating stories, have real life debate, instruction writing, writing biographies and applying our amazing new vocabulary in each piece of writing.
Year 3 team have also enjoyed investigating in Science - we explored magnets and forces as well as plants. Swans class became mini-scientists in order to examine the different use of forces and magnets as well as examine the different parts of a plant.
We also did various projects in Geography, History, Art and DT, as we created a Stone Age 3D village (pictured), the map of our community and amazing Black History month art (see below).
Swan class have managed to excel in all lessons, including PE, and PSHE, and will continue to work to their full potential in the coming term.
