Year 3 2019 - 2020

Mrs Brotherhood

 Autumn Term 2019

During this Autumn Term, I would like to welcome you to Year 3.

We will be celebrating Harvest in school, as well as looking forward to the dark days in December as we prepare for Christmas.

To start the term, we will be using the classic Roald Dahl story - 'James and the Giant Peach' to celebrate Dahl Day. Children will be reading and writing about the story - using adjectives to invent and describe their own REVOLTING RELATIVES, replacing the awful Aunts Sponge and Spiker in the story.

In English, we will focus on the skills of active reading, sharing a text and analysing together, retrieving information, explaining and justifying author's choice of words. For writing, IPEELL will help us to structure and organise our writing in retelling and inventing Traditional Tales and Fables. We will also use the IPEELL structure to help us with writing explanations and instructions.

In Maths, we will focus on place value, considering the position of a digit to show the value. We will use this knowledge to help us in addition and subtraction of numbers to 3 digits. Later in the term, we will look at multiplication and division.

RE will focus on celebrating Harvest and Christmas this term.

In Geography we will look at earthquakes and volcanoes, considering the changing world and changes over time.

Our big focus will be a theme in History, Life in Ancient Britain - The stone age. We will learn about the lives of hunter gatherers, their homes and tools.

In Science, our first topic links with our History and Geography as we learn about Rocks and Soils and Fossils. Later we will learn about Forces and Magnetism.

In PE we will be going swimming - this will take place each Wednesday. In addition, our Tuesday PE time will focus on invasion games and skills to use in Hockey. Netball, Football.

Here's hoping for a fabulous Autumn Term -  Enjoy!
