Welcome to Year 3 with Mr Wills and Mrs Ward.
Welcome to Swifts Class! We have a very exciting year ahead; we are looking forward to getting to know the children and welcoming them to their new year group and Key Stage.
This is what we will be learning about, in each subject, this term:
In English; we will be researching Great Thunberg and building upon our prior knowledge of punctuation, spellings and grammar.
In Maths; we will be deepening our understanding of place value with numbers up to 1000 and consolidating our times tables and problem-solving skills.
In Science; we will be learning about biology, and deepening our knowledge of plants and what they do.
In Geography; we will be learning about rivers and how to use maps efficiently.
In History; we will be delving into facts about Ancient Egypt and exploring how the Ancient Egyptians lived.
In RE; we will be studying Hinduism and the importance of the Ramayana story (Rama and Sita).
In PSHE; we will be continuing to celebrate things that we enjoy doing and things that we want to improve upon.
In Art; we will be thinking about how we use lines to create space and depth. We will also be looking at hue, shade and texture in our pieces of art.
In Music we will be consolidating our prior knowledge of pace, tempo and beat whilst becoming more creative with composition.
In Computing; we will be learning more about Internet safety and how to use ICT equipment effectively.
Througout the year, French will be taught by Mrs Kandes and one PE session will be taught by Mrs Kee. Our PE days will be Wednesday and Thursday, please send your child to school in PE kit.
We are looking forward to a busy and exciting year. As ever, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask anyone in our Year 3 team.
