Year 3 – 23/3/18

Wow, what a busy term we have had! All the children have been so enthusiastic and hard working this term, it has been a pleasure to be their teachers.

Learning in the summer term:

After the Easter holiday we will spend a few weeks finishing off our learning about the Vikings before moving on to a geography unit of work. Our science topic is about plants so we will be working each week on learning in much more detail about the different parts of plants and conditions for healthy growth.

In English we are going to be using a book called The Flower Man by Mark Ludy. This is a wordless picture book that is a fantastic stimulus for creative writing.

In maths we will be learning how to add amounts of money. The children we also be having French lessons next term.

Home Learning:

In preparation for our work on the Vikings we would like the children to research a Viking god which they will then teach the rest of their class about. They can present their learning in any way they choose.

Other information:

Please continue to encourage your child to use Time Tables Rockstars if they have any spare time over the next two weeks. We would appreciate it if you could give us an indication of when you have read with your child or discussed the book they are reading independently at home, just a signature in their green record book would be great.

Thank you for your support over the past term, we hope you have a lovely break and look forward to seeing you in the summer term.

Kind regards

The Year 3 team

Year 3 – 16/3/18

The children in year 3 seem to have been completely inspired by our work on the Beowulf and have done some amazing drawings of their own Anglo Saxon heroic characters which they will use in their own stories.

Our learning next:

We will now begin to learn about how the Vikings came to this country and the impact of this on Anglo Saxon life in Britain.

In maths we will be consolidating and applying all our work about multiplication and division to real life scenarios.

The children will be writing their Anglo Saxon adventure stories in English.

Home learning:

Towards the end of next week we will be checking all the spellings the children have been learning this year. Please encourage your child to look back over all their words in preparation for this. If you need another list please see your child’s teacher.

Other information:

Just a quick reminder that the Anglo Saxon/Viking day will go ahead on Thursday.
