I’m sure you’ve had a brilliant Easter holiday and that you’re raring to go for the new term – your last in Year 3….boo!
The key to success in Year 3 is to practise reading, spelling and tables at home to support all of your in-school challenges. Remember that Ed City homework really helps recap some of the things we’ve been up to in class. This term is your last chance to master your 3s, 4s, 6s, 8s and 9s, so make sure you know them BACKWARDS too! Then you will be super speedy and ready for the new challenges in Year 4!
In Literacy we will be reading Jeremy Strong’s story Viking at School. We will also explore and create some amazing non-fiction texts about animals so that you can wow us with your knowledge! Later in the term we will investigate myths, share play scripts and enjoy performing some poetry.
Maths will start off with fractions and continue into shape and time work. We will then round off the year, developing the children’s skills and understanding of mass and capacity.
Our topic this term is ‘The Vicious Vikings’. This will form the basis of our geography and history work as well as much of our art. Science will be focused on Rocks and Soils – hopefully the sun will come out a lot and help us in our learning!
We are also very excited about our first Westbourne camp in May and an exciting trip to Legoland.
