It has been great to see our children again. We are extremely proud of them and all that has been achieved in Year 3 this half term. The children have settled extremely well into their new classes and routines and have made great progress. In Year 3 we have enjoyed reading ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’ in English. The children have produced some wonderful letters in the role of Duncan.
Over the past few weeks the children have been really enthusiastic in our Art lessons in which they have produced some amazing pictures that represent their emotions. These are now displayed in the corridor for everyone to admire.
We have been delighted to welcome back our children after such a long time. The children have settled into their new classes and have made a great start getting to know their new teachers and adapting within their new bubbles. We are extremely proud of the children following all the new rules put into place to keep them safe. We are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead.
This half term our theme is Feelings and Emotions. Throughout this half term we will be sharing our experiences with each other allowing the children to explore different feelings. In English we will be reading the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. The text covers a wide range of emotions such as: anger, loneliness and frustration. The children have had the opportunity to make predictions based on illustrations and used the text to answer questions both retrieval and inference. The children will then use the skills learnt to write a letter discussing all the feelings that have been experienced in the text.
Through our theme we will be learning about the intensity of emotions and how to cope with them as well how to support others. We will practice different ways of looking after our mental health such as mindfulness. During our PSHCE lessons, there have been a lot of opportunity of talk about and role play how to deal with your emotions and reactions to different scenarios.
In Maths we will be learning to read, write, order and compare numbers. As part of our work we will be showing different ways to represent the numbers using objects and pictorial representations. We will also be practising our 2, 5, 10 and 3 tables and our basic numbers facts (doubling, number bonds and adding and subtracting numbers).
Our theme this half term has been ‘The Frozen World’. We have found facts about different countries in the northern hemisphere and learnt about the key explorer ‘Captain Robert Falcon Scott’.
Our English focus has been to use non-fiction texts to enhance our learning about the frozen world. We have created our own non-fiction texts such as a fact file on polar animals.
In Maths we have been learning about multiplication and division (using number facts, and then formal written methods of columnar multiplication and division). In Science our topic has been forces and magnets (looking at different sources of force and friction, with a key focus on magnetic forces). In our ICT lessons we have been learning the basics of how to code using the program ‘Scratch’.
