Good morning all!
I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and like me, ate too many easter eggs and enjoyed the lovely weather we have had! What a busy term ahead we have got!
To prepare for our residential to Sherwood Forest, we will be focusing on Marcia Williams interpretation of The adventures of Robin Hood. To tie in with this, we will be looking at several examples of mythical stories and tales of many legends in English. In Maths, we will be continuing to focus on fractions. We will also be starting to learn to tell the time to the nearest minute using both analogue and digital clocks. Parents, if you have a clock you could use to help your child use at home for extra practise, that would be great!
In topic, we will again be looking closely at Robin Hood and his adventures in Sherwood Forest. Our topic will be more Geography based, and we will be focusing on map work, locating cities and countries on maps and learning how to use an atlas. In Science with Mrs Allen, the children will be looking at light and shadow and conducting some fantastic experiments.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
I hope you all had a lovely, well rested Christmas break! What a busy half term we have lined up! In Topic, we will beginning our learning on The Romans and the world's natural disasters. We will focus on how the Romans lived, what they did to help our country and learning about Roman legends including Julius Caesar, Emperor Augustus and Boudicca!
In Guided Reading, to tie in with our topic we will be reading the book 'Escape from Pompeii'. In English, we will be writing a narrative to link in with our Guided Reading focus, and writing some fascinating biographies based on our Roman legends! In Maths, we will be continuing to learn about multiplication and division, so get practising those times tables! On a Tuesday afternoon, Year 3 will be having Science lessons with Mrs Allen and learning all about magnets and forces.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Please be ready in the morning to line up on the Key Stage 2 playground, where I will come to meet you all at 8:50am. Through the classroom is the cloakroom, where you each have a peg to hang up your coats and bags, and a trolley for your packed lunches if you are having a packed lunch
During our first couple of weeks in school, we will be reading the book by Rob Sanders and doing some writing based on the story. We will be doing some great Maths work, focusing on number and place value. In art, we will study the brilliant workings of the famous artists Grayson Perry and research some of his well-known tapestry art.
During the rest of this half term, we will be looking at the topic Rock of Ages, which will focus on the Stone Age period. Throughout this topic, we will go back in time to understand how cavemen lived and survived throughout the Stone Age era, imagine life as a hunter-gatherer and understand how Britain has changed over time. In line with this topic, we will be reading Stone Age Boy in Guided Reading and in English, completing some instruction writing based on the hilarious How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.
