Year Three

 

Ahoy Matey!

Year 3 will be pirates this term. We will be exploring different texts, acting in role and writing as though we were stranded on a desert island. The children will be using our Creative Read corner to capture their imagination and travel land and seas.

In Science, the children will be learning about plants. They will be identifying and describing the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers. Also we will be exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant.

For maths, we will be learning about: Problem Solving, Angles, Right Angles and Estimation, Subtraction, Perpendicular and Parallel Lines, Vertical and Horizontal Lines, 2-D Shape – Properties and Drawing and Perimeter Including Problem Solving.

 

Reminders: Please make sure your child has both an indoor and outdoor PE kit available in school every week. Children are to bring in their PE kit on a Monday and to take it home on a Friday.

 

Children will be going swimming every Wednesday during this term.
