Summer 2

This half term, we will continue our learning about Ancient Greeks. We will be holding an Ancient Greek day (keep your eyes peeled for more information) and an Ancient Olympics event in the afternoon. We will also continue our Science topic of-Animals and Humans and will be producing bar charts to present data.

In Maths, we will be revising all our Year 3 targets, from place value and number to fractions and measures!

This half term in English, we will be looking at non-fiction texts and creating our own information page for a class book. We will then be performing some Greek plays and writing our own play scripts.

The homework this term is the same as last term, the children can choose 1 piece to complete carefully and in detail each week in their homework book. We are really excited to see what wonderful, creative, collaborative creations you can bring in this half term year 3! Remember to read every night as well and practice your times tables.

 

Outdoor learning this half term is still fishing, problem solving and the allotment. Please make sure you have the appropriate kit.

We are currently reading Theseus and the Minotaur in English, it would be great if you could find any other Greek myths, perhaps at Keighley library and read some at home aswell.

Autumn Term

In Autumn term we learned about Dinosaurs and Rainforests. The ‘Junk’ dinosaur models that the children made at home were absolutely amazing. We were very impressed with the creative children (and helpful adults) we have in Year 3! We had a great visit to Cliffe Castle to learn all about Rocks and Soils and the children enjoyed being archaeologists for the day!

Our trip to Tropical World was fantastic and the children know all about the specific animals that live in the different layers of the Rainforest. We have produced some wonderful art inspired by our two topics using a variety of media.

We have developed our knowledge and strategies in problem solving and deeper learning around measures, addition and subtraction, place value and multiplication. We are still busy learning our times tables, keep practicing at home!

In English we read, performed and produced some great poetry, and the children are much more confident now when reading poetry. They have made great progress with their cursive handwriting and are writing sentences with fronted adverbials with confidence.

The children made fantastic progress last term with all their learning.
