Welcome to Kiveton Park Meadows Junior School! It is going to be a fabulous year of fun, adventure and learning! Get ready for incredible field trips, wonderful topics and fascinating facts! We want to hear your ideas about everything, so don't be shy and get yourself ready!
Our Class Theme
Our class theme is "Climbing High". In 3YJ we have been joined by our class mascot, Koko! Koko likes to have fun, but also loves to learn. He'll be looking for someone who is just like her. If you have worked hard in class, tried your best and taken care of those around you, you might get to take Koko home! You'll need to keep her entertained and write a diary entry about all of your fabulous adventures together.
Autumn Term - Stone Age to the Romans
This term we have two periods of history to learn about - the Stone Age and the Romans. We are going to get started with the wonderful book, "Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age." We learn that Ug has many learning behaviours that we look for at our school, but those around him are not too impressed...Our art work will look at sketching of flint tools, making our own hand-print cave paintings and work based on Stonehenge. We are going on a trip to the Lunt Roman Fort. Be careful, there are rampaging Celts around and you won't be allowed into the safety of the fort without the password!
Summer Term - River Deep, Mountain High
This term's topic will centre on a geography focus, which will involve us looking at what the Water Cycle is and how important it is. We will also understand how a river is formed, the features of a river and look at freshwater biomes. In science we will learn about plants and rocks and fossils. Furthermore, we have some fabulous picture books which will help us look at our science topics from another direction. Linked to science, we will be visiting the Butterfly to enhance our learning. In DT, we will continue working on our shoebox cars which we started before the Easter Holidays.
Our PE days this term are Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please bring a suitable kit on each of these days. Remember that we do outdoor PE throughout the winter and a bit of light rain will not stop us! Dress accordingly to make sure you enjoy these sessions.
