Bringing bags into school
We ask that children only bring bags into school if it is absolutely essential, and that they are as small as possible. This is due to a limited amount of space in the cloakroom area. Thank you for your support and consideration.
Croeso Nol - Welcome Back!
Welcome back everyone to year 3, we are already in the swing of our new topic World in Union, which the children have taken down the route of Japan and rugby. They have contributed lots of great ideas, please see below an overview of what we intend to cover this term - if any other ideas pop up during the term we may adjust some lessons.
World In Union
We are already looking at non-fiction writing, by researching Japan and writing an essential guide to Japan. The second half of Autumn 1 will include developing our creative writing and language skills, by writing an exciting story based at the beach. Reading skills will be continually developed through group reading and reading comprehension work in literacy lessons, for example learning about extreme weather events in Japan. After half term we will look at Haiku poetry and non-fiction texts based on our science work.
We will begin the term by recapping fundamental concepts of place value, the four operations and using the inverse operation to check our work. Next we will move onto 2D and 3D shape, before coming back to comparison of numbers, rounding and estimating. After half term we will be looking to cover simple fractions, time and money. Please support your child in practising their times tables at home and completing the Abacus Active Learn games each week. Their log-in will be sent home in their homework books.
Our exciting topic this year is World in Union. The children have contributed lots of interesting ideas, from which we will plan our lessons including cooking Japanese food, learning about the human body and how to stay fit, learning about extreme weather and climate change in Japan and learning about Japanese art including Manga.
