Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Term 5 - Over and Under the Sea!

Our Year 3 Class have such a thirst for knowledge that we are will be looking at both under and over the sea this term! From pirates and shipwrecks to deadly sea creatures and beach safety, we will be exploring it all!

We will have the opportunity to learn more skills in our writing, when we write instructions, reports and pirate stories! During our project learning, we will looking at light and shadows, which will link nicely to our maths learning, where we will focusing more on time. In addition, we are going to be thinking about the properties of materials.

We are hoping to go on a trip to the beach to learn all about beach safety as well as much more.

In week 3, you will be able to sample some delights from our pea pod sale, which we will be planning soon. There will be lots of maths surrounding this, where we will be able to learn more about data collection and statistics.

You can look forward to hearing all about this and hopefully listening to some sea shanty’s, when you come and see us on the last day of term for our Year 3 Class Assembly!

Many thanks for all your continued support. Please come and speak to me if you have any questions.

Term 4 – All things Dahl!

Excitingly, this term we will be working towards putting on a play! The children liked the idea of a Roald Dahl themed play and so we have chosen his revolting rhyme version of 'Jack and the Beanstalk!'

Within our writing we will be looking at, and writing, play scripts and innovating the story Esio Trot by Roald Dahl! We will be particularly looking at adding direct speech! Within our maths we will be exploring fractions, as well as a little weighing and measuring linked to the tortoise in our class book!

We will be working on our speaking and listening, when rehearsing the play. We will also need to use our art key skills to create scenery and props. As well as this, I am hoping the children can use their musical key skills to create a part of music to accompany one of the songs in our play.

Within our scientific learning, we will be looking at light. The children will be exploring light, dark and shadows and linking this learning to the lighting we will need for the performance!

You will be able to see some of our learning so far this year at our first class assembly! This will be on the 10th March in the morning.

Jack and the beanstalk will be on Thursday 30th March, there will be an afternoon performance and an evening performance.

Any questions, feel free to pop in.
