Summer is here! Hooray!
I hope 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 Education City homework really will help to consolidate some of the things we’ve been focusing on in class. This term is your last chance to master your 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables 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 sharing the book ‘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 term we will investigate Viking myths, share play scripts and enjoy performing some poetry.
Maths will start off with fractions and continue into shape work. We will be consolidating all of our number strategies as well as perfecting our time skills!
Our topic this term is ‘The Vicious Vikings’. This will form the basis of our geography and history work. In Art we will focus on Edvard Munch and we will recreate our own interpretation of one of his most popular pieces as well as looking at some other famous artists. Science will be focused on flowering plants and light and shadow – hopefully the sun will come out a lot and help us in our learning!
Let’s have a brilliant end to Year 3!!!
