Welcome back to Mr Longthorne’s Year 3 class where we hope to continue on the work of the autumn term. Mrs Furniss is our ETA support.
Things to remember:
Summer Term 1
Topic - Our topic work this half term looks at completing the work we started on Invaders and Settlers; looking at the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons as our examples of this. We will then move on to look at how land is used nationally and in the local area and how natural resources are distributed.
Literacy – This half term we will be looking at a stories that raise issues and dilemmas through the story of Jemmy Button which looks at children’s rights and cultural identity. This will tie in with our topic work. We will also be consolidating our spelling, grammar and punctuation skills. We will further develop our reading skills and complete our study of Arthur and the Golden Rope.
Maths – We will we continue learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables and getting to grips with time. We will also be extending our knowledge on fractions as well as making sure that we understand the number system.
Science – This term the class will be looking plants and how they grow.
Art and DT- We will develop our drawing and painting skill and look at the work of Vincent Van Gogh.
Computing - We will continue to learn a range of key skills to help complete an information presentation and an e-book.
French – We will continue with greetings, learn words and phrases associate with farm animals and pets.
RE – We will continue to look at symbols within different religions and also explore how being a member of a religion affects how we live our life and how different religions respond to questions of belief and meaning.
PHSE – We will be following the “Jigsaw” scheme and exploring relationships.
Music – we will be listening to pieces of music, concentrating on national anthems and having a go at writing a “national anthem” for our class.
Please help your child meet their targets by taking an interest in what they are doing in school and helping them when they need it!
The adults in class are working hard to make sure that the children in our class have a happy and successful year. If you wish to discuss anything concerning your child, please call in and see me at the beginning or end of the school day when we are usually available, or make an appointment at the office.
