Brunel (Year 3)


Brunel Class 

Class teacher: Mr McLeod 

Learning Assistants: Miss Edwards and Mrs Tanner 


This term: 


We are artists this term.  

We are exploring this question across the school: Can I create a piece of art based on a period of history?


In Brunel class this term we are looking at portraits and how in the Tudor era, these were used to show off the status of the individuals. As part of our STEAM lessons, we will be exploring light and using our scientific knowledge to help us use this knowledge within our artwork. As we develop our skills in art we will be practising how to draw proportionately and how to use different media to create different effects.  


Curriculum Prioritisation: 

Over the rest of this academic year, we will be focusing on core areas of learning to help prepare our children for the next stage of education. Below are the areas that would be beneficial to support your child at home with: 


Reading – decoding and blending new words and reading with intonation and expression to express meaning. As well as being able to answer retrieval questions about the text. 

Writing – writing correctly punctuated, multi clausal sentences with well-chosen adjectives based on the context. As well as practicing letter joins in handwriting.  

Maths – recalling the 2-, 4-, 5-, 8- and 10-times table and the associated division facts. As well as being secure in the addition and subtraction facts to 20.
