Welcome to Year 3!
Classes this year are named after famous creative people, as chosen by our children at the end of last year.
Van Gogh class is taught by Mrs Hussain and Miss Howson.
Kahlo class is taught by Miss Emmerson and Miss King.
Welcome back to school, we look forward to working hard this year and making outstanding progress.
This term our science topic is plants.
We will be learning and recapping about the different parts of plants and their functions. We will be investigating what happens to plants without leaves as well as how water travels through the whole plant. We will encourage our children to engage in scientific enquiry and question the world of plants to put their inquisitive minds at ease!
In Geography we are focusing on our local area.
We will be going on a walk around our local area and observing the different features that make up our area, including both physical and human features. We will discuss the changes to our local area in the last 100 years and why these changes have occurred. Children will have the opportunity to gather data on jobs in the local area and then present this data in a bar graph.
In History we have looked at Prehistoric Britain from the Stone Age all the way to the Iron Age. We are currently working on the Ancient Egyption civilisation.
Please encourage your child to complete their homework.
This will be sent home every Friday with a set piece of homework to be completed and handed in the following Thursday.
Spellings will be sent out every Wednesday and are to be learnt for our spelling test the following Wednesday.
In year 3 your child will be able to access Times Table Rockstars for additional support with their mental recall.
Your child will be provided with a username and password so they can access this at home. We encourage your child to complete the challenges alongside weekly homework. Times tables will also be tested weekly.
PE for Kahlo class is on a Monday and Tuesday.
PE for Van Gogh class is on a Tuesday and Friday.
Please make sure your child has their PE kit with them. This includes plain jogging bottoms or shorts, a plain t-shirt or long sleeved top and trainers or pumps.
Indoor shoes are more important than ever in this wet weather. Please could your child have a pair of pumps or other suitable shoes to change into when inside. This protects carpets and gives their feet a chance to dry if their shoes are wet.
The Year 3 Team
This is our long term plan for the year ahead. If you have any questions regarding our learning, please talk to the class teachers.
