Welcome to Year 3
Mrs Kendall is the class teacher in Year 3 with Mr Bowker teaching PE, computing and DT on Wednesday afternoons.
In RE this term we will reflect on the role of Mary as the Mother of the Church and will respond to Gospel accounts of the Holy Spirit. We will also think about the importance of valuing ourselves as a child of God. We will write our own prayers and continue to plan, prepare and deliver our own prayer and liturgies.
In maths this term we will begin with written methods for addition and subtraction, followed by multiplication and division, money and statistics. Throughout the year we will learn the 3,4 and 8 times tables.
We will cover a range of reading and writing tasks based on the stories that tie in with our History and Geography topic Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be looking at 'The Stone Age Boy', 'Ug Boy Genius' 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth', Iron Man and our first class read of the term will be 'Stig of the Dump'.
Our science topic for this term is Plants. We have lots of exciting challenges and investigations planned to look forward to!
PE this term will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school at all times. All jewellery must be removed and long hair tied back.
Our topic for this term will be Stone Age to Iron Age.
In Year 3 the children will have weekly guitar lessons. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to develop their knowledge and understanding of all the music elements through fun, practical activities. Please encourage your child to practice their guitar pieces at home and look out for news of guitar performances throughout the year!
