Year 3 Class Teacher
Welcome to Year 3!
Term 6 -
Wild Wild West!
This term we will be basing our learning around Cowboys and Indians! The children picked this topic as they thought it would be exciting and interesting! It is going to provide us with lots to write about, including information facts and stories! Our class book is The Indian in the Cupboard, by Lynne Reid Banks and we will be doing lots of writing based around this!
In art we are going to focus on recording colour and drawing portraits with accurate orientation of the face and features of the face, so look out for some displays of fantastic Indian chief portraits and cowboy silhouettes on a beautiful painted sunset backgrounds. We will also be designing a dream catcher in design and technology, this will be for someone in our family, so we may have to come and do some research to find out what people need!
Our history learning will lead us to discovering more about Native Americans, comparing and contrasting historical periods with our life today and finding out about the everyday lives of people in history.
Maths this term will be a mixture of many maths skills we have already learnt, however we will be looking at them in a more challenging way and applying our skills to help us solve problems. Some of our focuses will be on calculations, shape and timestables.
This term is a busy one, with sports day, a music festival and much more! So keep checking the school newsletter to find out more about all the exciting things that are going on!
Any questions feel free to come and see me.
Many thanks for your continued support! Mrs Dinham
