Welcome to the Summer Term, Year 3! Wow, how quickly has this year gone? We are so glad that you are all back safely and settling back into school life. We cannot wait to do all the lovely activities we have planned.
This term, we will be studying ‘The Rhythm of the Rain’ in English and learning lots about the water cycle and the importance of rain. We will be continuing to develop our sentence writing, using lots of grammar tools and making sure that our writing is engaging and interesting for the reader.
In maths, we are learning all about fractions and will be talking lots about PIZZA and CHOCOLATE. It doesn’t get better than that guys, does it?!
‘The Way, The Truth and The Life’ is all about the Resurrection and how Jesus’ sacrifice has paved the way for our own Catholic beliefs, including how Pentecost marked the birth of the church.
You will become botanists this half term as we will be investigating and learning all about plants, in science. We will be learning about the different parts of plants and conducting our own experiments to learn about their functions and see how water is transported within them.
PE is on MONDAYS – please come to school in your PE kit.
In theme this half term, we will be answering the topic question ‘What are the 3 peaks?’ and looking at the countries that make up the UK. This will include looking at capital cities, rivers and mountains within the UK and how they compare to our local area.
Please remember you all have access and login details for Times Table Rock Stars and Bug Club so use these as often as you can to help build and consolidate all your learning so far.
Book bags and water bottles need to be in school EVERY DAY.
