Meet Our Team
Autumn Term 1
Welcome to Year 3! Mr Sharp, Mrs Winder, Ms Bray and Mrs Webb are delighted to welcome you back to school. This half-term, we will be learning all about different rocks and soils. We shall be looking at different rocks as well as finding out all about how different rocks are formed. We will also look at how volcanoes are formed and how earthquakes happen. In geography, we will use maps and atlases to locate different countries around the world. In music, we will begin to learn the recorders and in RE, we shall be looking at looking at how the Jewish faith remembers the important figures of Abraham and Moses.
In maths, we shall be doing lots of work on number this half term. We will begin by looking at place value (hundreds, tens and ones in Year 3) before developing our skills in addition and subtraction. As well as work on number, we shall work on drawing 2D shapes and telling the time to the nearest minute - a skill that can also be practised at home!
In English, we shall be using the text The Iron Man by Ted Hughes to inspire creative writing whilst also working on spelling patterns and joined handwriting.
PE days are Tuesday and Wednesdays: outdoor PE is on a Wednesday so please make sure you bring your outdoor PE kit. Recorders will be on Mondays; a letter will go out to parents about this very shortly.
Homework will be set on Times Table Rockstars, MyMaths and Spelling Shed weekly. Please ensure you are completing the work that is set for you.
Here’s to a fabulous half-term!
