Year 3

In English this term Year 3 will be using the story “The Wolves in the Walls” as a model to write an imaginative story of our own. We will introduce the concept of prefixes in our SpaG lessons. We will also be continuing with phonics activities and spellings in small groups.

In Maths we are learning about place value and moving into numbers up to 1000. As always we will be continuing to learn our times tables using TT Rockstars and Rolling Numbers. After Place Value our next maths units focus on addition and subtraction, using lots of mathematical resources as well as formal recording of calculations.

Our Science topic is all about Forces and Magnets, using the Topic name of Scrapheap Challenge. Linking to this, we will be drawing robots in art in the style of Eric Joyner an American artist.

We are so lucky to be having Forest Schools in the afternoons in Year 3 up until Half Term. 3GW children will be attending on Monday and Tuesday and 3KW on Wednesday and Thursday. Please send your children with suitable clothing on those days as whatever the weather, Forest School will go ahead.

In Computing we are learning about How to Stay Safe Online and begin by learning the rules for Strong Passwords and how to behave respectfully online.

In RE we are looking at the strand “Belonging” in the context of Christianity.
