SPRING TERM 2019
Happy New Year!!!
Year 3 is led by Gareth Hodgson, Jane Williamson and Helen Whitehead and supported by Sarah Clarke, Cathy Noble and Carole Quill.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to Year 3, ready for another fun-packed term.
In History we will be studying the Anglo-Saxons and learning about their invasions, settlements and kingdoms and shall explore place names, village life, art and culture. We will link our learning with Global issues of today. Later on in the term, in Geography, we shall be learning all about ‘Marvellous Maps’ and learn to use the points of a compass, grid references, symbols and keys.
Our second Outdoor Education activity of the academic year will be learning the skills of map reading and orienteering within our school grounds.
As well as this we will continue our learning in school by exploring Measurements, Interpreting Data and the four operations used in Mathematics. The Ice Palace story book will be at the centre of our English work and inspire us to write for a range of real purposes and audiences. Whilst, in Science we shall be investigating light, including shadows and reflection; followed later in the term with our plant topic.
As the Spring Term comes to an end we shall be performing our Year Group Assembly and participating in our School’s ‘Friends of the Earth Week’ and World Book Day!!
Wow – so much to look forward too!
