Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome Back. I hope you really enjoyed your summer 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 be opening 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.

 

Please also ensure we have any medical details needed and that asthma inhalers are in school if the children have been prescribed one.

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 'Ancient Egypt' , and in the first half we will look at life in Ancient Egyptian times. We will read the Egyptian Cinderella and turn a know fairytale Into an Egyptian version of our own. 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 place value and addition and subtraction. These will be thought about in the context of problem solving including money, measure and time. There will also be opportunities for data handling.

 

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 learn the 3 times table this half term.

 

  Science work this half term is on 'Rocks and Soil'.

 

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 Ancient Egypt, looking at timelines and the culture and beliefs of another time period, and in Geography we will be developing our map skills and knowledge of the world.
  • The children will begin learning Spanish this year.
  • Computing - We will be using word processing skills to present our writing and using Purple Mash to learn more about coding.
  • Art/DT- We will be sketching and painting scenes with watercolour paints.
  • PE - The children will learn Dance with Miss Christina, and invasion games with Mrs Seymour on Thursday afternoons.
  • RE - We will learn about Judaism this half term.
