Welcome to Year 3. We can’t wait to see you on Thursday 7th September
The Year 3 class is led by Ms Gard. She will be helped by Ms Zorlakkis.
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.
In English, we have been working hard to develop our paragraph writing ensuring we are creating cohesive and accurate descriptive paragraphs. In Maths, we have been solving addition and subtraction problems and learning how to mentally add by bridging to 10. In Science, we have been learning about plants and we hope that the plants the children bought home are still surviving! We have really enjoyed learning about the Romans in topic lessons, we have been busy researching, painting, creating our own Top Trumps game and understanding how their Empire affected people here in Britain. In Computing, we have been learning to code using a program called scratch. Check it out on the internet if you like!
Next term we will move onto studying ancient Egypt so if anyone has anything from any travels that we could use within our learning we would love to borrow it. We will be designing and making artefacts, looking at information texts and stories about Ancient Egypt and in Maths, we will be developing our skills in multiplication and division.
A fantastic start to our second half term of the year. We have already made human models of plants watering systems, mummified and tombed precious beings and created self-portraits. This half term we continue our work on Plants in Science but switch to learning about Ancient Egyptians in History. In Maths, we are looking at multiplication and division, trying really hard to crack our 3, 4, and 8 time tables and then will finish with measurement. For English we are starting with non-fiction texts again while we sink our teeth into the Egyptians, and then we will move onto narrative writing. We are focusing on sentence and paragraph construction for different purposes and using accurate punctuation.
In Spanish we are looking at the parts of the body and in PE we are learning ball games. For Religious Education this half term we are looking at Christianity and Advent in the lead up to Christmas. Once again, if you have anything at home that would support our learning in any of these areas we would be happy to look after it for you for a few weeks.
Wow, what a term! Last half term, we learnt so many new things in all of our subjects our brains were almost bursting. We had great fun with our last history topic - the Ancient Egyptians; we also extended our learning on plants and flowers. We made human models, mummified our friends and explored a range of artists and forms. Our writing showed lots of positive progress as we really enjoyed reading all about the Egyptians and all the children are doing so well with their Maths work - well done everyone!
We also went on our first class trip last half term and I must say how proud I was of our children. They had a wonderful time and we look forward to more opportunities in the future.
This half term, we will move on to learning about the journey of rivers. In Science, we will look at different rocks and in RE we will be learning about Islam. If you do have anything at home relating to rocks, rivers or Islam and are willing to allow us to borrow it, we would be very appreciative. We hope you all had a well-deserved rest over the holidays and are excited for our new year of learning!
