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 lovely manners and excellent attitudes to learning!
Our current topic is ‘The Rainforest’ which links in excellently with our courageous advocate: Greta Thunberg.
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, interviews with different creatures and non-chronological reports about rainforest tribes. 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 as well as learning formal methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be developing our knowledge of properties of 2D shapes and applying this in a variety of reasoning and problem-solving questions. As part of our learning on statistics, Year 3 will be working on interpreting and representing data using tally charts and tables.
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 focusing on communication and tactics with Luke and Olly as well as attending weekly swimming lessons.
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.
In French lessons, will be looking at France and other French speaking countries as well as how to say our name, how we are feeling, colours, numbers and action verbs.
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!
