Year Three

Welcome to Year Three’s class page!

In our classroom you will find a cheerful, engaging and motivating environment. Our children live out their faith in every aspect of School life by our kind words and actions.

Below we will share information about our curriculum and fun learning moments within our class.

We will also share photographs of our work throughout the year for you to see!

Our Creative Curriculum

Autumn Term 1 – Stepping into the Stone Age

Autumn Term 2 – What a Wonderful World

Spring Term 1 – The Romans

Spring Term 2 – Extreme Earth

Summer Term – The Potteries (local History)

THIS TERM

In English we will be writing lots of different genres using our Roman knowledge from our History lessons. We will be writing instructions about How to be a Roman Soldier, character descriptions on Boudica and we will be pretending we have been captured by the Romans and forced to become GLADIATORS!

In Maths we will learn how to multiply 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers using formal methods and consolidating our times tables knowledge.

In our History lessons we will be learning all about those Rotten Romans and exploring all of the things they have done for us. We will consolidate our learning on this topic by visiting Hanley Museum to pretend to be archaeologists and mold Roman clay pots.

In Science we will be working scientifically to explore the effect and causes of Light and Shadows.

For our DT project this half term we will be designing and making a Roman chariot fit enough for the Romans to race at an amphitheater.

 

Although we encourage and teach reading at school, it is important that this is carried on at home to help improve your child’s knowledge and understanding.

Could parents please encourage reading daily and listen to them read at least a couple of pages of their book each night.

Please sign the yellow reading diaries so that they can be rewarded for their extra effort!

 

Meet Scruffy Ted

In Year Three we have a class teddy that watches the children all week and then decides which kind friend he would like to spend the weekend with. However, Scruffy Ted can only fall asleep if he has had a story read to him before bed. We will love to see and read all about his adventures with the children.

 

Please keep checking our website and Twitter page for updates of the children’s fantastic work.
