SPRING TERM 2020
Year 3 is led by Cath Greenall, Jane Williamson and Helen Whitehead and supported by Sarah Clarke, Dawn Remnant, Cathy Noble, Caroline Hindle, and Carole Quill.
Happy New Year!!!
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 also link our learning with Global issues of today. Later on in the term, in Geography, we shall be studying ‘Marvellous Maps’ and will 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 and using the skills of map reading and orienteering within our school grounds.
As well as this we will continue 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. In Science, we shall be investigating light, including shadows and reflection, followed later in the term with our plant topic.
Finally we have been given a very special opportunity to take part in an art project with Windermere Jetty Museum! We shall be creating some cloud inspired pictures that can be included in a new interactive installation at the museum, using JMW Turner as an inspirational source. It all sounds very exciting!
As the Spring Term comes to an end we shall be performing our Year Group Assembly and participating in World Book Day!!
Wow – so much to look forward to!
