Welcome to the Year 3 class page
It has been an excellent start to the term so far. The children have settled well into Year 3 and their transition into KS2. Our topics this term are as follows:
Our theme this half term is called ‘Beginning with God’. We are looking at creation stories from different cultures and paying particular attention to the less well-known creation story found in Genesis 2. After half term, we will start our new unit called ‘From Advent to Christmas’.
We started this term with an exciting story called ‘Stone Age Boy’ which is about a child who falls into a world that existed 20,000 years ago in prehistoric times. This text is linked to our history topic and will be the basis for different types of writing such as descriptions, diaries and instructions.
In Maths, we have been concentrating on place value up to 1500 and number bonds up to 100. We have been learning about column methods of addition and subtraction and division and multiplication. We have been applying our mathematical knowledge through solving word problems based around money, measurement and statistical investigations.
In history, we are learning about the Stone Age and the children will be developing their understanding of how their knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources. Our Stone Age topic will be enriched by our trip to the Chiltern Outdoor museum during which we will take part in a range of activities investigating how people in prehistoric times lived.
In Science, our topic is ‘Animals Including Humans’ which involves investigating different aspects of the human body and how to keep it healthy. The children will learn to draw conclusions and use straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions about how living things function.
As is the case throughout the school, we expect and encourage all children to adhere to high standards of behaviour both in class and on the playground.
The children in Year 3 have negotiated a set of class rules together and have all agreed to follow these with the understanding that doing so will create a happy learning environment that will help their learning.
Working together with parents and guardians plays a large part in ensuring there are good relationships and standards of behaviour in school.
- We really appreciate your support when helping children with homework. The task set is related to what we have covered in class that week and provides a chance for them to consolidate their learning.
- PE takes place every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school on this day. All items of uniform must be named.
- Please ensure that your child brings in a named bottle of water every day.
