Spring Term 2020
This half term, we will be writing poems, newspaper reports and recounts, based on various texts including 'When the Giant Stirred'. Our focus will be, to continue to write more extended pieces of work, using a range of rich and varied vocabulary and detailed paragraphs. We will continue to improve our writing with the use of co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions (if, so, when, although, because) and prepositions (inside, above, around, on) to extend our sentences. We have high expectations of handwriting and presentation, the children have started with great enthusiasm, we know this will continue throughout year 3.
Thank you for all the continued effort of lots of home reading, it really does have a positive impact on everything in the classroom. Our class book is Tom Fletcher's 'The Creakers', which the children are thoroughly enjoying. This term we will continue to make predictions, summarise texts and infer characters thoughts and feelings. Continuous reading really helps their development, by improving their overall literacy skills, general knowledge and absolute love of reading.
Children will be having a weekly spelling test, of ten words, which will be done on a Monday. Children will re visit words from the Year 2 and the Year 3 and 4 Spelling word list. Please encourage children to practise these at home as this will help greatly with their writing.
This half term, we will be working on Multiplication and Division, and Measurement. As always, we are still working on our times tables. The children can practise at home, especially on Times Table Rockstars. By the end of Year 3 children should know fluently, their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times tables.
This half term, we will be developing our Geography, ICT, Music and Art skills. Our theme is based around 'Volcanoes and Earthquakes'.
In Science, our theme is 'It's Getting Hot in Here!' We will be learning about heat and how it can be produced in many ways and how it can move from one object to another. Our little Scientists, will be using their questioning and predicting skills; planning and conducting experiments; processing and analysing data and information; and evaluating and communicating.
We have PE on Wednesday and Friday. Please remember to have a full kit for these days and no earrings are to be worn. Thank you.
