Latest news from Year 3

Summer 2

In Geography the children will be learning about the Rainforest. They will be using their atlas skills to locate countries where you would find a rainforest. They will be making a leaflet to show the different layers of the rainforest Emergent, Canopy, Understorey, Forest Floor. 

In English we are using the book The Great Kapoke Tree. The outcome of English will be to describe a setting using a combination of grammar they have learnt throughout year 3. 

In Maths we are learning about 2D and 3D shapes. What properties do the shapes have? What are their names? We will also be learning about angles which can be found in shapes. We will finish the unit by learning about statistics and data.

In Science we are learning about the life cycle of a plant, the seed dispersal, parts of a plant, how they grow and what they need to survive.  

How can I learn at home?

  • The children should remember to read for at least 30 minutes every day. In addition to the school books that are sent home each week, you can download the Get Epic reading app and choose from the 1000’s of books on there for free. 
  • Children will be sent weekly spellings based on the phonics or spelling learning that they will do the following week, along with a spelling test at the end of that week. They will be tested on 10 words from the top of the grid and then all 5 Year 3/4 words on the bottom part of the grid.
  • Children should aim to select one activity from the homework menu which centres around our current theme of Rainforest as well as relevant maths learning. There is a mixture of activities, both creative and written so lots of options to choose from!

Spring 2 Review

The children enjoyed our theme this half term What a Waste! In Geography we found out about different countries and how they recycle their waste. In ART/DT we recycled old CD’s and made frogs with them for our whole school Recycled Art/DT day.

In English we found out all about different ways that we can Reduce, Recycle and Reuse from the book ‘George Saves the World by Lunchtime’. We wrote about what other amazing things that George could do to save the world from lunchtime until bedtime.

In Maths we were learning about fractions, the children learnt that a fraction is a part of a whole amount. They enjoyed finding out about fractions of shapes, money and amounts.
