Although it may be a slightly different term (learning from home) we will still be covering some exciting topics! As our first topic of the year 'Medieval Monarchs' was a huge success we have decided to continue this topic in Term 3 to find out more about some of the most famous kings and queens. 
We will be using the Medieval Monarch topic in Guided Reading where we will look at texts about the Tudor times and some of the famous monarchs.  
In English, we will be using 'The Black Hat' video to write a story and then 'The shirt Machine' video to write instructions. 
In Maths we will be looking at statistics and fractions.
In Science we are learning all about space and the solar system!
In Art we'll be studying the local artist, Doug Eaton, who creates paintings of the Forest of Dean landscapes. We will then have a go at using Batik (however this will have to be adapted to using household items).
P.E will be a range of different activities and videos including Cosmic Yoga, Go Noodle, Joe Wicks and the Youth Sport Trust. 
In Music you will get your own login to YUMU which is the home learning platform for Charanga (which we use in school). We'll be focusing on the song 'Make you feel my love' by Adele. 
In R.E we'll be studying Christianity and thinking about for Christians what kind of king is Jesus? 
In Computing we'll be focusing on online safety and how to protect your identity online. 
In PSHE we will be looking at how to 'Eat well, Live well', the Garden of Dreams and The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. 
As you can see we still have lots planned for this term even though most of you will be learning at home and not in school.
