Year 3 2019 - 2020
Welcome to the Year 3 web page!
Just a quick reminder to all parents and carers that on Tuesday 21st January 2020, there will be a talk by Imran Kotwal for parents on how we teach Islam across the school taking place in the Sunshine Room. This promises to be a very informative and valuable session and so it would be great to see as many year 3 parents as possible. It begins at 2:15pm.
About Year 3:
We will begin each day with a quiet 5 minutes of reading followed by maths and English lessons in the morning. Then of course we have exciting topic work too, so our afternoons will be packed with Geography, History, 'Arty times' and much, much more!
Throughout the week we are lucky to have Mrs Fairhurst supporting us in Year 3 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, Mrs Saxton will enjoy Geography and other topic work with you and Mrs Benson will be taking care of all things Science and RE based!
Whilst learning about all of the things I have already mentioned, you will need your PE kit in school every day this term and please remember pumps or trainers as well as your usual shorts and t-shirts for indoor and fair-weather days and sports trousers, t-shirt and a sweat top or fleece for outdoor and colder weather days.
Water bottles should be filled and brought to school every day please too.
- Spellings - given Monday and tested following Monday.
- Comprehension - given Friday and due in by following Wednesday.
- Timestables - regular practice with a weekly test within Maths lessons.
- Maths homework - given Friday and due in by following Wednesday.
We will be enjoying reading quietly at some point each day and so please make sure your reading book is in school every day.
I have an open door policy, please do come and speak to me if you have any queries or email me at the address at the top of the page.
This Half Term, we will be focusing on the following:
Maths: We will be continuing to work on addition and subtraction and then be moving on to work on multiplication.
English: Roald Dahl will be our new inspiration for our writing over the next few weeks and we are starting off with Fantastic Mr Fox and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – we will be writing scene settings and character descriptions.
Science: investigating rocks and how they are formed and identified will continue initially and we will then begin to explore forces and magnetism.
RE: The children will continue to look at how Christians use symbols to explain what God is like and what Christian art teaches us about the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We will then move on to consider why there are different stories about Jesus’ birth and why advent is important to Christians.
Geography: Counties has been our focus this week and we will move on to look at rivers and coastal lines.
Computing: Looking at the importance of e-safety and the use of emails.
Art: Learning about the illustration style of Quentin Blake and having a go at creating our own in his style.
History: Developing our knowledge of British inventors to include female inventors who have pioneered progression in their field.
PE: Expressing movement through dance and developing our indoor athletic skills.
French: Developing our language skills in relation to celebrations.
Music: Creating compositions using vocals and instruments to describe characters within Roald Dahl books – Boggis, Bunce & Bean and of course, preparing for a musical depiction of the Christmas Story.
