Year 3H 2019 - 2020

Miss Healey

Welcome back to our second Autumn half term! The children have been working very hard and are becoming very mature and independent in their learning. They have impressed us very much since moving up to Key Stage 2 and we hope this will continue for the next 8 weeks.

In RE we will be moving on to our topic ‘Christmas – God is with Us’ this surrounds the topic of the birth of Jesus and the Christmas story. We will be focusing on God’s presence and how it can impact people’s lives as well as what instances we feel God’s presence and what emotions/challenges it helps us with. We are very much looking forward to you coming to see our Christmas performance in December too!

In Maths our focus will be remaining on key mathematical skills and knowledge such as addition and subtraction as well as place value. Please could you make sure the children are practising their times tables at home. They have been given logins for the website/app Times Table Rockstars and they can use this to secure their understanding of this very important knowledge. In class we are focusing on the 4x, 8x and 3x tables, the children should be secure in the 2s, 5s and 10s at this point.

In English we will be exploring Roman Myths, these are a fantastic opportunity to capture imagination and will provide an engaging format for the children. Moving on from myths, we will be looking at non chronological reports and the features of these texts.

Our new Science topic is forces and magnets – we will be looking at different kinds of forces and how they are incorporated into our everyday lives.  We will be visiting the Museum of Science and Industry on Friday 22nd of November to take part in workshops and investigate this topic thoroughly with a hands on experience.

We are still continuing with our History topic. This term we will look at how life has evolved since the Stone Age and venture into the Bronze Age and people discovered the metal Bronze and how it was utilised during this era in time. Then moving into the Iron Age and the changes that came about during this time period.

The computing topic is We Are Presenters, we will be looking at using camera equipment and microphones as well as good language to use when we become presenters ourselves in lesson. In Art our topic is Edith Holden and the painting of flowers. We will be refining our skills in this area and using music to improve our concentration and creativity.

Your children will receive spellings to learn every week alongside a weekly piece of homework relating to that week’s work. Please can you encourage your children to read at home as much as possible. This is vital to their success at school and will benefit them greatly. Even if it is only a small amount every day. There has been a great effort so far on reading but we can still do more! Also, can we please ensure PE kits are in every day to ensure your child does not miss out on this lesson.

All the best,

Miss Healey
