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!
Hello! A big welcome back to Year 3. I hope you had a fantastic Summer, I can’t wait to hear about all of your stories and adventures! 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.
Please bring in your PE kits and leave them in school (fully labelled). They can be taken home at the end of this half term.
I cannot wait to see you all!
