Year 3G 2018 - 2019

Mrs Gill

Welcome back! We hope you had a very relaxing Christmas holiday and have come back feeling refreshed and excited about the new term and the topics we will be covering.

In RE our topic is “Jesus – The man who changed lives”. We will be looking at important changes we have faced in our lives and reflecting on how this may change us as a person. We will be looking at the impact of Jesus on the world and individual’s lives. How he helped them, how he changed them, how he saved them.

Maths will see us continuing with important skills such as place value, addition and subtraction as well as multiplication, division, fractions and measurement. Please continue to practise times tables at home as much as possible and encourage your children to access their Times Table Rock Stars accounts as a way of making this fun for them.

In English we will be exploring fiction stories including imaginary worlds and Greek/Arthurian myths and legends. This is a very exciting selection of topics as it involves a lot of the children’s creativity and imagination.

A huge part of the development of our country is the history that it contains. During this term we shall be looking at how people from the stone and bronze age lived and how humans changed and developed through the pre-historic ages. Spring term will see a development of this right through to the Iron Ages. 

In science, we will be looking at plants. Revisiting this topic from year 1 and 2, the children will have a lot of prior knowledge that we can investigate and learn more about, including the parts of plants, pollination process and the requirements needed for a plant to grow healthily. As always including the skills needed for the children to work scientifically when conducting experiments.

The computing topic will focus on being a network engineer. Whilst we will be limited within school accessing the physical networks on the system, we will carry out many practical tasks recreating the principles behind a network and how it works. We will as always, consider the risks associated with networks and learn how to be safe in the online environment.

DT will focus on moving mechanisms and how we can use levers and linkages to make things move. This will give them a first look at this idea until it is developed later in their school life. Our artist for this half term is Gary Grayson and we will be focusing on collage and the ways we can make this method effective.

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.

Your children will receive spellings to learn every week alongside a weekly piece of homework relating to that week’s work. Please ensure this is done promptly and handed in by Wednesday of the following week. Please also ensure PE kits are consistently in school so your child does not miss out on these lessons.

All the best,

Miss Healey and Mrs Gill
