Year 3H 2019 - 2020
Welcome back and Happy New Year! We hope you have had a relaxing time and are refreshed as we have lots of interesting and exciting things planned over the next few weeks in Year 3!
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 where we will be looking at the book ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. The children will write character descriptions and then write their own version of the story. We will also be looking at Greek myths and legends. This is a very exciting selection of topics as it involves a lot of the children’s creativity and imagination.
Science this half term is focusing on Animals including Humans. We will be looking at food, how we use it and what it does for our bodies and for other animals’ bodies. We will also be looking at skeletons and muscles, why they’re important and why we need them. We will look at the fascinating various types of skeletons and how they differ to our own.
This half term we will begin with Geography, looking at where we are in the world and how we would go about finding ourselves using a mix of digital and traditional methods. Our DT topic will focus on moving monsters. This is where we use pneumatics (the use of pressurised air) to make our creations move. It is a very fun topic and we are sure the children will be very excited to share their progress with you about this. 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 make sure you are continuing to read with your children as much as possible so they progress well on our reading chart! This will help with their comprehension and writing skills as well.
All the best,
Miss Healey and Mrs Gill
