Can you believe you have started in the Juniors? What an exciting term you have ahead for you in Year 3.
This term in Literacy, we will be extending our descriptive writing by using images from a variety of setting and adapting our sentences with exciting words to lengthen them. We will also be focusing on shape poetry, story-telling, report writing and most importantly our spellings and handwriting.
In Maths we are working on our 3s, 4s, 8s and 9 times table. You’ll need to know them up to 12x and back again. Try to challenge yourself by practicing them as many times as you can. Get everyone to practice with you and show everyone how amazing you are! We will also be covering shape, data handling, addition, subtraction, division and time.
Our first topic is ‘Settings’ and we will be focusing on Sutton as our local environment and all its exciting areas, past and present. We will be learning how to read maps and work independently researching one town Sutton is twinned with so that we can make comparisons.
Our Music lessons will focus on modern composers, mainly focusing on John Williams and Leonard Bernstein. For Art we will be concentrating on different perspectives and drawing using a range of different resources.
In R.E. we will be focusing on Christianity, while in science we will cover the exciting topic of ‘light and shadow’. Later on in the term we will be learning the different types of skeletons and will be discussing what nutrition’s we need to survive.
During PE (Tuesday and Wednesday) we will be practicing our basketball and gymnastic skills. Make sure you bring in you PE kits for Tuesday and Wednesday. Ohh la la! I nearly forgot French… this term the topic is ‘All About Me’ and we will be learning through games and songs.
Please ensure you bring in a set of headphones for your Computing lessons and leave these at school.
Phew! We have a lot to get through this term and all before Christmas! We have lots of new and exciting topics to learn and I can’t wait to get started.
We expect 4 comments written by an adult and 2 by you in your reading records each week. These will be checked on a Monday by me and kept overnight, returned Tuesday Morning. You will be able to change your book every other day if you need to so no need to rush through it. Remember to read comics, magazines and non-fiction books too!
Spellings and tables will be handed out on a Wednesday and you will be tested on the following Wednesday.
Please ensure you bring in a set of headphones for your Computing sessions. You can leave these in your tray.
