Welcome to Year 3! I hope you have all had a nice summer holiday and are back fresh and ready to learn.
This half term, we have many exciting things planned whilst researching our topic of ‘The Mediterranean’. We will be answering the question ‘why do so many people go on holiday to the Mediterranean?’ Learning to speak Spanish with our new Spanish teacher and even tasting some of our own Mediterranean dishes. Delicious! In the second autumn half term, we will study what makes the world angry! We will be looking at volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis!
In science we will be investigating our daily nutrients, the bones in our bodies and our mighty muscles, also after half term we will be learning about rocks and how they form under out feet!
In literacy, we will be looking at Grandad’s Island, leading up to writing our own story. After half term we will have a brand new book where we will be writing a non-chronological report about a special animal! In Maths we will be covering a range of topics including counting, partitioning, securing number facts and place value.
Reading books and reading records must be in school every day and children should be heard reading at home at least twice a week with their reading record being signed. Homework will also be given to the children on a weekly basis which includes spellings and times tables, homework will also include a doing homework linked to topic or science.
P.E. will be every Wednesday. Please ensure your child is equipped with the correct P.E. kit and that it is in school at all times. All PE kits, including pumps, should have names in them. If your child wears earrings then they need to be removed for these lessons.
If you would like to speak to us about anything then do not hesitate to ask as we are available most days after school.
