Term 3 in PE will focus on developing the physical competencies of body movement, balance & control and flexibility. This will be taught through gymnastics whereby attention will be given to rolling, jumping and body shape. Please note for the safety of all pupils it is important that your child has secure fitting, non-slip indoor shoes and removes all jewellery for these sessions. Loose and/or long hair should also be tied back.
In Art we are learning about Steven Brown, the Scottish artist. We will use a variety of media, such as paint and pastels to create our own pieces of artwork in the style of Steven Brown.
Ideas to support homework
Each week the children will complete a numeracy task (CLIC) and will continue to practise their learn-its. They will continue to do spelling activities, choosing from the new fun spelling activities booklet. Please take time to visit the Google Classroom each week for homework tasks, useful web links and to view class photographs.
