We will be doing Whole Class Reading Lessons on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays too.  As ever, reading daily at home -with an adult -is crucial to ensuring that children meet the expected levels for Year 3.  Apart from remembering that a love of reading and books and regular reading for pleasure can not only be hugely enjoyable but vital in increasing the life chances of our children in their future lives.

We will be learning how to write Newspaper Recounts, Poems, Narratives and Diary entries as part of Ancient Egyptian Topic.  We will read and explore The Egyptian Cinderella story and  learn some songs about Ancient Egypt as well as studying and creating a range of Ancient Egyptian art forms.

Here is a view of the Maths we have covered so far and the plan for the Summer Term.  Any learning you can do on any of these topics at home, especially Fractions and Division, Telling the Time and Solving Problems with Money would really help!!!

There are lots of free websites to use at home and activities can not only be helpful but fun!!

Contact me if you need any advice.

For more detail, please see specific learning outcomes below!

 

   

It is important to continue to learn times tables at home for weekly tests on Fridays. 

Learning the related division facts eg 2 x 3 = 6 and 6 divided by 3 = 2 or 6 divided by 2 = 3 - would also be a great help!

In Science, we will be exploring the wonderful world of Plants and  the magic of Light.

                      

In ICT we will work on a range of topics and skills including word processing and the features of Purple Mash which can be accessed at home using the login details provided to each child in class 4.

                              

Our  History and Geography topic is Ancient Egypt and we will enjoy finding out all about important places, people, events and just what life was like in Egypt 5000 years ago!

                                              

In Games we will be enjoying Rugby lessons every Thursday, attempting to run the daily mile (all kit for indoor and outdoor PE must be labelled and  in school at all times- including trainers) and be working on athletics, dance and gymnastic skills.

                                                                                 

Note - A fully labelled indoor and outdoor kit must be in school every day and it must be stored in your locker throughout term and taken home to wash every half term.

In PSHE we will be thinking about ‘Going for Goals’ and in RE exploring the Ancient Egyptian's religious ideas as well as Hinduism and the celebration of Light.

                                   

In Art we will continue to develop sketching skills and add to our growing portfolio within our sketch books,  work on a variety of 2D and 3D projects and continue to explore different mediums including paint, clay and textiles.
