Year 3

The Year 3 class is led by Ms Gard. She will be helped by  Ms Cassell, Mr Thompson and Ms Ndoko who are the teaching assistants.

This half term our topic is London.  We will be learning all about The Romans.

We will practise reading in our Guided reading lessons and will write in a variety of genres in our Literacy lessons. We will focus on some interesting stories and information books all about the Romans.

In Maths, we will be working on counting in hundreds, tens and ones, making number patterns and practising adding and subtraction with renaming.

In Science, we will be looking at planta. We will identify and describe the functions of different parts, explore the requirements of plants for life and growth and investigate the way in which water is transported within plants.

Autumn 1

Wow, what a wonderful and speedy start we have had to our first half term here in Year 3. We are learning about the Romans, studying the infamous Julius Caesar and his invasions as well as all about Roman Roads. We are hoping to build a few things to help us understand about the similarities and differences and how the Roman influenced us here in Britain so if you have any boxes, yoghurt pots, small pebbles or kitchen towel rolls please drop them off to us. Additionally, to help us deepen our Roman knowledge in English we have written a biography about Julius Caesar, role played the battle of rebellion begun by Boudicca and we are now reading the highly recommended Roman Mysteries series.

In science, we have already planted various seedlings and seeds in order to carry out different investigations into plants, their needs and their processes. We have all now got our ballet uniforms and begun looking at the skills we will be developing. If you have not yet paid your £10 please do so at the office, the children really do look great in their uniforms.

We are enjoying Music, PE and Spanish lessons – there is always so much movement, music and laughter during these lessons. Please remember that all pupils are required to participate in all lessons so a full PE kit can be left in class all half term. It's been a jam packed start to this half term and we have loads more to cram in, can’t believe we are half way through already!

Autumn 2

Year 3 have travelled back in time to explore the history of Ancient Egypt! We have studied Cleopatra and Tutankhamun along with the process of mummification and the importance of the Nile River. We have had a great time working together to make canopic jars from recyclable materials, mummifying some members of the class as well as looking artefacts and images from that time. In Maths, we are working on practicing and understanding our timetables and related division facts and in Science, we are continuing our study of plants by looking at the life cycle of a flower and the processes involved. With only a few weeks to go before the Christmas break, we still have lots to do and learn so are working tirelessly to ensure that we are learning, having fun and collaborating successfully.

Spring 1:

In Year 3, we have been enjoying the academy topic of ‘Wild Weather’ looking specifically at Rivers. We have been learning about the water cycle and the uses of rivers around the world. In English we have been studying the children’s novel ‘Wind in the Willows’ By Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908 this could be a challenging text but Swan class have risen to that challenge, as always! Pupils have produced some excellent pieces of writing including setting descriptions, diary entries and letters. We look forward to showing off some of our wonderful writing during our next show my learning party.

In Maths, we have been working hard on various skills such as number, division, multiplication and measure. Pupils have enjoyed practical sessions using weighing scales to weigh various classroom items!

Next half term we will be learning about African Tales. We would love some mystery readers to come into class and share African stores or folk tales with us. Please speak to a member of the Year 3 team if you would like to share your stories with us.

General reminders:

  • Please ensure your child has a water bottle, which can be kept, inside our classroom. This enables children to stay hydrated throughout the day, which helps their learning.
  • Please also ensure that your child has their PE kit in school. Many children have been forgetting and this affects their PE and preforming arts lessons. Children are very welcome to bring in leggings/jogging bottoms so they keep warm during outdoor sports lessons.
