Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome Back. I hope you really enjoyed your Christmas holiday. I hope the children are looking forward to al the exciting things ahead of them this term. I know I am!

 

Class Organisation

We will continue to open the doors at 8.45, and  from this time the children are welcome to come and settle down to some quiet reading or other task set.

 

Please could all children bring in a named water bottle to leave in the class during the day. They should only contain water - not juice. The children are free to drink from these when they need to , and we will take them to PE sessions.

 

In KS2 there is no funding for fruit to be provided at break, so if children would like fruit at break, they will need to bring some from home. They are welcome to eat this at break to tide them over until lunch.

 

 

Welcome to Year 3! Thank you for visiting our class page. On this page you will find key information about our curriculum and our classroom. We will also be sharing some of our learning with you so please come back to visit to see what is new!

What are we learning at the moment?

  

The topic in Year 3 this autumn term is 'Anglo-Saxons, Scots and Vikings' , and in the first half we will look at life in Anglo-Saxon times.Through this topic we will bring in other areas of the curriculum. Please feel free to let us know of anything you do or have at home related to any of these topics!  

 

In Maths we will mostly be working on using models and multiplication and division. 

 

By now children should be able to recall facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and so along with revising these we will continue to work on the 3,4 and 8 times tables.

 

  Science work this half term is on 'Animals including humans'.

 

The rest of the curriculum will be delivered creatively, taking advantage of the links between each subject. The main units, this term, will be;

  • PSHE - We will be looking at rights and responsibilities including internet safety.
  • Humanities - We will be studying life in Ango-Saxon and Viking times. 
  • The children will continue to build on their successful start to learning Spanish this year.
  • Computing - We will be focusing on E-safety.
  • Art/DT- We will be making biscuits and weaving.
  • PE - The children will learn Gymnastics with Mrs Zarate on Mondays, and invasion games with Mrs Seymour on Thursday afternoons.
  • RE - We will learn about the importance of Easter to Christians this term.
