Welcome to Class 7!
Class teacher: Mrs Coates
Teaching Assistant: Miss Robinson
The children in Class 7 have settled into Year 3 brilliantly and have really impressed Mrs Coates and Miss Robinson with their fantastic attitudes to learning!
Our current topis is ‘Rainforests and Rivers’.
In English, we will be embedding our learning about the rainforest in a variety of cross-curricular contexts including writing kenning poems, ‘Just So’ stories, diary entries from the perspective of rainforest animals, dilemma stories based on The Great Kapok Tree, non-chronological reports about different creatures and persuasive emails and letters about deforestation. We are also going to be working hard to improve our reading speed, fluency and expression.
This term in maths, we are going to deepen our understanding of place value by exploring 3 and 4-digit numbers as well as learning formal methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will look at money in a variety of contexts so the children will really benefit from using money practically at home. As part of our learning on statistics, Year 3 will be working on interpreting and representing data using pictograms.
Our science lessons will be all about plants this term. Children will plant and care for their own seeds as well as conducting lots of investigations on what plants need to survive.
In PE, we will be creating our own rainforest dances as well as advancing our thrown, catching, rolling and bouncing skills with Olly and Luke.
Year 3’s weekly RE sessions will focus on The Creation Story and what it means to follow God. Children will also take part in daily worship sessions both in assemblies and class-based activities.
We are very excited that Mrs Bradley will be teaching ukulele lessons to Year 3 each week.
Our class homework will be sent out each Friday on eSchools website. We look forward to seeing all of the amazing work that you upload!
