Spring Term 1 2018
Welcome back to Miss Murphy’s Year 3 class where we hope to continue on the work of the first term. Mrs Taylor is our ETA support.
Things to remember:
Spring term 1
Literacy – This term we are looking at the Roman legend of Romulus and Remus – the story of how Ancient Rome was formed. We will be using it as the basis for writing and performing our own playscript. We will also use our history topic of the Romans in Britain to research, write and present information texts about the legacy of the Ancient Roman culture.
Maths – We will again be focusing on our 3, 4 and 8 times tables, and using formal methods to multiply and divide. We will also be looking at adding and subtracting money in real-life contexts as well as presenting and interpreting data in bar charts, tables and pictograms.
Science – This term we are looking at humans and other animals, with the focus on nutrition, the types of bones and how they work as part of a skeleton and the roles of different muscles.
Art and DT- We will develop our art techniques, designing and creating a Roman-inspired mosaic.
Computing - We will learn a range of key skills to use in word processing.
French – We will practise our counting, parts of the body and months of the year.
RE - We will be looking at questions of purpose, meaning and truth.
PHSE – We will be following the “Jigsaw” scheme of dreams and goals.
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.
