Welcome to Year 3W!
Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Easter break with your families. The children have worked incredibly hard so far this year and ended Spring term 2 with lots of success. Please see below to find out all of our topics for this term, any special dates and what we are learning in each subject.
Here's what we will be learning during this half term:
In Maths, we have started by focusing on fractions and then we will begin to look at different types of measurement including time. It is really important that we carry on practising our times tables because we'll keep on revisiting some of the work from Autumn and Spring term.
We did some amazing learning in English last half term and the children created some pieces of writing which they should be very proud of! We are very excited that this half term, the children will be working on The Twits by Roald Dahl - one of our favourites! We will be creating instructions for the many pranks they pull on each other, writing a newspaper report, and using our drama skills to help write a play script. We are going to continue focusing on the Year 4 writing objectives, in particular, using conjunctions to extend sentences and using a range of fronted adverbials to begin sentences.
In Spring 2, our science topic is Plants and we will be learning about what plants need to grow before investigating different parts of plants and their functions. We will be creating some practical science investigations to put our learning to the test!
Our topic for this half term will be Ancient Greece. So far, children have placed this on a World History timeline and have compared Ancient Greek democracy to todays. Over the next few weeks, we will be focusing on Geography skills by creating sketch maps and locating different places using coordinates.
