Year 3G 2018 - 2019

Mrs Gill

Welcome back to our second Autumn half term! The children have been working very hard and are becoming very mature and independent in their learning. They have impressed us very much since moving up to Key Stage 2 and we hope this will continue for the next 8 weeks.

In RE we will be moving on to our topic ‘Christmas – God is with Us’ this surrounds the topic of the birth of Jesus and the Christmas story. We will then be moving on to looking at Proverbs and their meanings, exploring the Bible and discuss the value of wisdom, including reading about Solomon’s wisdom. This is a lovely opportunity to explore our scripture in more detail, focussing less on the typical stories and parables and concentrating more on the implications and inferences surrounding Proverbs.

In Maths our focus will be remaining on key mathematical skills and knowledge such as addition and subtraction as well as place value. Please could you make sure the children are practising their times tables at home. They have been given logins for the website/app Times Table Rockstars and they can use this to secure their understanding of this very important knowledge. In class we are focusing on the 4x, 8x and 3x tables, the children should be secure in the 2s, 5s and 10s at this point.

In English we will be exploring Roman Myths, these are a fantastic opportunity to capture imagination and will provide an engaging format for the children. Moving on from myths, we will be looking at non chronological reports and the features of these texts.

Our new Science topic is Light – we will be looking at how light travels, what shadows are and many other brilliant questions surrounding this. We will be visiting the Museum of Science and Industry on Friday 9th of November to take part in workshops and investigate this topic thoroughly with a hands on experience.

We have moved from Geography to History, and this term we shall be looking at how people from the stone age lived and how humans changed through the ages. Spring term will see a development of this right through to the Iron Ages. 

The computing topic is We Are Presenters, we will be looking at using camera equipment and microphones as well as good language to use when we become presenters ourselves in lesson.

In Art our topic is Edith Holden and the painting of flowers. We will be refining our skills in this area and using music to improve our concentration and creativity.

Your children will receive spellings to learn every week alongside a weekly piece of homework relating to that week’s work. Please can you encourage your children to read at home as much as possible. This is vital to their success at school and will benefit them greatly. Even if it is only a small amount every day. There has been a great effort so far on reading but we can still do more! Also, can we please ensure PE kits are in every day to ensure your child does not miss out on this lesson.

All the best,

Mrs Gill, Miss Healey, Mrs Baleem and Mrs Hughes
