Welcome back, I hope you’ve had a relaxing fun-filled break and that you’re raring to go for the new term!
One of the keys to success in Year 3 is to practise reading, spelling and tables at home to support all of your in-school challenges. These three things will make you even smarter!
In Literacy we will be sharing James and the Giant Peach – another great Roald Dahl favourite! We will also explore the clever picture books of Anthony Browne and write our very own adventure stories using his style! World Book Day will feature storytelling as well as dressing up – watch this space to find out which costume you will require!
Maths will still be focused on our 3, 4, 8 and 9 x tables (in addition to your 2s, 5s, and 10s which should be perfect!) and their related division facts. We will be moving onto time and fraction work – both of which can be practised lots at home. You will learn about analogue times as well as digital so get practising both.
Our topic this term is Construction and we will be linking this to Ancient Egyptian architecture. This work will be supported by an exciting trip to the British Museum.
In Science, our topic is Magnets. There will be opportunities for plenty of experiments and scientific observations.
We can also look forward to a Christianity Day at the beginning of February and a Steve McQueen Art workshop during March. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
