Year 3

Welcome to our final term in Year 3!

This half term we will be learning all about our local history and seeing a very important building. We are covering gymnastics in PE which I know some of you will really enjoy. Our Science this half term is all about light and shadows and we will be carrying our some interesting experiments to go with that. 

We have a slight change of timetable to note:

On Thursday morning Mr Mulock will be doing your PE first thing in the morning and then you'll be doing Science after that, so you'll need to make sure you have your PE kit with you for that first session. 

 

I hope you've all had a lovely Easter break and are looking forward to more learning this half term.

Happy New Year everyone!

 

I hope you had a very happy and restful Christmas and New Year and are all ready for a brand new year and a brand new term.

This half term we will be learning all about how to write newspapers and how the climate affects us and the world. We will also be learning about climate change and how it affects people and animals around the world. 

Our maths is going to focus on all our basic skills of addition and subtraction alongside learning times tables to make doing maths a lot easier. 

 

You will, of course be continuing all your hard work reading at home and completing homework especially the additional learning for our topic, spellings and making sure you go on TTRockstars every day.

 

Our landmarks will be based around famous building worldwide so you'll need to look carefully at all the clues given to you here on the website.

 

Remember you can all access Purple Mash and Big Club to help with your learning.

 

Our PE lessons will be on Wednesday and Thursday as usual and you will need to make sure all jewellery is removed ( especially earrings) and that you have full kit including footwear - either pumps or trainers.

 

I hope you enjoy all the great things planned over the next few weeks.

Happy Half Term to Christmas!

I hope you all had a restful half term and are now ready to continue learning. This term we are continuing to  study all about the past and are looking at the Bronze Age and Iron Age and what changed at this time. We are also going to learn all about how our bodies move and are protected along with how to keep ourselves healthy for a long and happy life. Our Spanish this half term is all about counting to 15 and saying your age.

 

Our main books this half term are The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura which will be our guide to writing our own Stone Age adventure. We will also be reading Charlotte's Web for our class novel.

 

I will also be setting homework which will be spelling, comprehension and maths and will be linked to your learning in class. Homework is set on Monday and Friday and is expected in on Friday and Monday.

 

Our PE this half term will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. It is advisable to bring PE kit in at the beginning of the half term and take it home for washing at the end of the half term.

 

Every week there will be a new landmark of the week that will appear here as well as in class. The landmarks are usually based on our history or geography topics and this half term all the landmarks are based in our history topic and so are ancient monuments.
