Welcome to Year 3W!
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely break! The children have settled in well and are learning lots of new things. Please see below to find out all our topics this year, any special dates and what we are learning in each subject.
Here's what we will be learning next half term:
Here's what we are learning next half term:
In Maths, we will be moving on to further multiplication and division. We will be using our times tables knowledge to multiply a two digit number by a one digit number. After this, our focus will move on to measurement. Throughout the year, we will be continuously going back to the learning we did in Autumn term, so keep practising those times tables!
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! This half term, we are going to be using the skills we have been learning to create some non-fiction texts about the UK. We are hoping to write some newspaper reports and even an information leaflet all about the things we know about the UK. We are going to continue focusing on the Year 3 and 4 writing objectives, in particular, using conjunctions to extend sentences and using and punctuating direct speech correctly.
In our guided reading sessions, we are going to continue using our favourite Reading Dogs to help us develop our skills in understanding the text and using inference. Please keep reading at home as much as you can because practising really does make a big difference!
In Spring 1, our science topic is Animals including humans. We will be learning about different types of nutrition and how it effects our bodies. We will also be looking at the different bones and muscle groups in our bodies and using all our new knowledge to create a practical science investigation.
Our topic for this half term will be the UK. We will be learning to name and locate the counties and cities of the UK and describing their human and physical features. We will also be practising using maps, atlases, globes and computer mapping to locate the counties and cities.
