Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 laugh

Your teacher is Miss Shaw, Mrs Duarte will also be teaching you each Friday morning.

Mrs Emery will be working with us some days, and Mrs Grice will be with us on at other times.


Summer 2


In English, we will be reading ‘The Wind in the Willows’ as our class book and write descriptions, play scripts and a chapter story based on this. We will practise improving sentences in a variety of ways, including using better adjectives and adverbs.


In Maths, we will be identifying different angles and lines within shapes. We will find the perimeter of simple shapes. We will also revise many of the concepts covered this year.


This half term in Science, we will be learning about light and shadows. We will find out about light sources, look at how shadows are created and how the shape and size of shadows change. We will also learn about the range of colours that can be seen.


In our History topic, we will build on what we have learnt about the Stone Age and find out about life in the Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will think about how life changed when they began using metals.


In Computing we will be creating branching databases.


In Music we will continue to learn to play the ukulele.


In Design and Technology, we will be designing and making savoury scones.


In R.E. our key question this half term is ‘What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today?’ We will learn about how Hindus show their faith in the home, what a shrine consists of and the different gods and goddesses that they worship.


Homework, usually English, Maths and any spellings/multiplication tables will be given out on a Friday to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Please read with your child regularly and record this in their reading record, it is part of their weekly homework. (times tables and spelling tests weekly).


Both PE sessions will be outdoors this half term so please make sure your child has the correct kit: shorts and tshirt are ideal for warmer weather and a blue/black tracksuit for colder weather as well as trainers.  If children have their ears pierced, it would be preferable if they could leave their earrings at home on P.E. days. If not, they must be able to remove their earrings themselves and are responsible for putting them somewhere safe.


Please can you also ensure your child has the correct equipment required for school: a pencil, ruler, rubber and a blue fibre-tipped pen. It is also useful to have some pencil crayons and a glue stick. The children also require a water bottle each day in school.


Thank you.
