Year 3H 2019 - 2020

Miss Healey

Welcome back to school and most importantly welcome to Year 3!

We hope that you have all had an amazing and restful break. As always we have an incredibly busy year ahead but one that hopefully will be lots of fun too!

A big part of this year will be the transition from Infants to Juniors. There is a big step up in the work and expectations of the children but together we will support them as they settle into a different way of working. We appreciate any support from parents and please don’t hesitate to contact the school (or you can catch a member of the Year 3 team for a chat at the start and end of the day) if you have any concerns regarding your child.

This term in RE will see a focus of prophets surrounding our “Called by God” topic. This is very exciting and contains lots of stories from the Bible, with a reflective theme of repent, forgiveness and quests.

Each RE lesson will contain a time for reflection where the children will be encouraged to consider their thoughts and actions in daily life and how to further improve these in order to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. We will also be starting our Harvest topic and begin to look at the Old Testament stories from the Bible.

Maths and English will continue just like last year with 1 lesson of each per day. In addition to this, we will also spend time on guided reading daily and handwriting several times a week. 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.

Science topic this term is Light – we will be looking at how light travels, what shadows are and many other brilliant questions surrounding this.

This term in History we shall be looking at how people from the stone age lived and how humans changed through the ages. Autumn 2 will see a development of this right through to the Bronze and Iron Ages. 

Computing will see more advanced skills such as programming being taught and will give the children good experience of how computing works.  The children will be using a programme called ‘Scratch’ to create and develop programmes.

Art and DT will focus on structure, creating frames for our art work. This fits with our Van Gogh work in art,  Starry Night, focusing on drawing, with the intention to have a framed piece of art for your children to bring home to you.

Your children will receive spellings to learn every week alongside a weekly piece of homework relating to that week’s work. We very much appreciate your support in ensuring homework is completed and handed back in at the latest on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child reads with you every night. Not only is this an enjoyable task it also enhances their writing skills.

All the best,

Mrs Gill and Miss Healey
