Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 class page for Tree Frog class (Miss Nelmes), Tawny Owl class (Miss Thornton) and Turtle (Mr Munnnings).
Last term we had our Egyptian Day. It was great to see so many children (and adults) dress up and we all immersed ourselves in the topic!

This term, in English, we will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and will be exploring the different writing techniques an author may use. We will continue to look at poems and their structures and will also create our own play scripts.

In Maths we will continue to improve our arithmetic skills and will revisit division. We will also start to look at using the compact method to multiply.

In Science we are going to explore light and shadow. We will investigate which materials reflect light, which objects are light sources and how shadows are created. We will also explore transparent, translucent and opaque materials and objects.

RE will involve us looking at different religions and cultures.

In Geography will we be exploring the weather. We will look at extreme weathers, weather in different locations and will also record some British weather.

During our ICT we are going to re-visit coding. We will use coding to create a moving, lego masterpiece.

Please ensure that you are reading with your child at least three times a week and recording this into their reading diary. Children should also be practising times tables regularly at home.
