Year 3H 2019 - 2020
Welcome back to the second half of the spring term! Although it is a short term, it will be jam packed full of lots of great activities for the children to do.
Our focus in R.E. will be Lent and Easter. Year 3 will learn about the stories of Holy Week, the emotions that these events can stir and the true meaning of Lent, including the rituals and the way we celebrate.
In Maths, we will be focussing on: perimeters, fractions, place value, multiplication and division. We will also be concentrating on mental addition and subtraction, continuing with the written methods for both of these. Make sure you are practising your mad minutes at home!
We will be spending the next few weeks in English looking Greek Mythology and Non Chronological reports. We will also be focusing on grammar as we need to improve our understanding of completing and punctuating sentences.
Our focus in Science this term will be rocks and fossils. We will be learning about the different types of rocks and how they are made. We will then be going back millions of years to find out how fossils are formed. Finally, we will look at soil, asking the question – what on Earth is it?
In Geography, we are learning about climates around the world! We will learn about types of climate: temperate, desert, polar and tropical. We will also be creating our own ‘triorama’ of climates!
In French, we will be learning about: body parts, counting up to 30, clothes and months. In Art, we will be focusing on the artist Antoni Gaudí, where the children will create their own mosaics in the style of Gaudi. In DT we are continuing to create our moving monsters.
This term in computing we will start by refreshing ourselves with Basic Computer Skills. This will be followed by the topic Opinion Pollsters! We will be designing our own questionnaires which we will be creating on the computer for each of the classes to complete. This data will then be collected and we will be presenting it in tables and graphs.
PE is on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on these days.
Make sure you are continuing to read with your children every day at home, even if it’s just a few pages. It all helps to contribute towards their wider learning. Spellings and homework will be given out each week on Friday, spellings to be tested the following Friday and homework to be collected on Wednesday.
All the best,
Miss Healey and Mrs Gill
