Welcome to Year 3W!
Welcome back after the half term break! I'm Mrs Fielden and will be teaching 3W - I'm looking forward to getting to know them and working together! Please don't hesitate to come and see me if you have any questions about this half term.
Here's what we will be learning during this half term:
In Maths, we have started by focusing on Statistics including pictograms, bar charts and tables. Following on from this we will be looking at measuring length and perimeter. It is really important that we carry on practising our times tables because we'll keep on revisiting some of the work from Autumn 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! 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 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.
