Welcome back to Miss Murphy’s Year 3 class where we hope to continue on the work of the past terms. Mrs Taylor 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, how natural resources are distributed and using maps.
Literacy – This half term we will further develop our reading skills and complete our study of Arthur and the Golden Rope. We will also be looking at stories that raise issues and dilemmas through the text Jemmy Button, which explores the issues of children’s rights and cultural identity. The writing focus is non-fiction and poetry. We will also be consolidating our spelling, grammar and punctuation skills.
Maths – We will we continue learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables and getting to grips with fractions and time.
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 create an information presentation and an e-book.
French – We will be learning months of the year and vocabulary associated with animals.

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.
