Year 3H 2020 - 2021
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 7 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 be focusing on God’s presence and how it can impact people’s lives as well as what instances we feel God’s presence and what emotions/challenges it helps us with.
We will be focussing on Place Value applying mental strategies to work out maths calculations for addition, subtraction multiplication and division in Maths. 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 Adventures Stories by reading Stoneage Boy and Stig of the Dump. Moving on from adventure stories will be looking at poetry and some nonfiction texts concentrating on the format and features of both.
Our new Science topic this term is Light – we will be looking at different kinds of light forces and how they are incorporated into our everyday lives.
We have also begun our History topic, what was life like during the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages? The children will come to know how these 3 periods in History have played in important role in today’s world. The children will learn how people discovered the metal Bronze and how it was utilised during this era in time. Then moving into the Iron Age and the changes that came about during this time period.
The computing topic is We Are Bug Fixers, we will be looking at how to resolve computing errors known as bugs in programs. In DT we will be looking at different kinds of packaging and its uses. The children will then create their packing for a specific item. They will design, create and evaluate their own packaging, rectifying any mistakes.
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,
Miss Healey and Mrs Gill
