Year 3

Welcome back. We hope you all had an enjoyable week. This half term we have Mr Doyle in BFG class for the first 4 weeks, before Miss Bardle returns.


Our topic for this half term is entitled ‘The Games Children Play’. This particular topic focusses on the creative arts – art, music, dance and drama. As part of this topic we will be looking at classical music, as well as songs from different decades. We will be looking at dances that are associated with different decades, as well as some historical events that occurred during these times. Within Art, we will be looking at sketching the human figure through observational drawings.


Within our English sessions, we will be looking at how to write a persuasive letter, as well as continuing our work on writing narratives. During these sessions, we will be revisiting work on conjunctions, as well as using a variety of punctuation, including inverted commas and question marks. The children will be continuing to work through the reading books using the accelerated reader program, where they will be answering questions each time they have completed a text.


During our Maths sessions, we will be focussing on using money, length and identifying and using fractions. The children will continue to work on their 3, 4 and 8 times tables through our daily timestable rock stars work.


Through our French lessons, we will be looking at how to use numbers, colours and animals in sentences, as well as how to identify male and female terms.


Within our RE sessions, we will be continuing to look at the Jewish religion and make comparisons with other religions.


If you have any queries or concerns, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
