Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Term 2 was a fantastic term in Year 3, we are so proud of how the children are adapting to the new normal. We enjoyed reading ‘The True Story of the Three Little Pigs’ and produced some amazing alternative endings to the story.  In Maths, we finished our Addition and Subtraction unit and have been working very hard on our Multiplication and Division unit.

Across the curriculum we have been looking at The Stone Age in History, Hockey and Invasion Games in PE and have been practicing our sewing skills in Design and Technology. We have also looked at Light in Science.

This term we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring the text ‘Feast’ and ‘How a Robotdog Works’. We will then use what we have learnt from the authors to write our own narrative and informative piece of writing.

In maths we are working hard on our Multiplication and division unit. Once we finish this unit, we will move onto Money.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:

 

Science

Humanities

Art/Design Technology

Computing

Music

PE

Rocks

Geography

L.S Lowry (English Painter)

Creating Media Animation and Desktop Publishing

Let your Spirit Fly

Dodgeball

In addition, we will be having a Zoom visit from class teacher’s dogs to go alongside our ‘Feast’ Literacy unit, as well as an audio Music performance to the Year 3 classes.

Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. Children are required to complete the child’s comments section.

Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to just be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.

P.E will take place on a Tuesday this term for both classes. Please note these days may change but you will be given notice.

In case of timetable changes P.E kits are required by all children daily every week. This consists of a pair of trainers/plimsolls, a different white t-shirt other than their school t-shirt, dark coloured shorts/jogging bottoms and a jumper. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for PE due to health and safety reasons and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on PE days.
