Happy New Year to you all!

Thank you all so much for your cards gifts and good wishes, I was truly spoilt!

So the start of another amazing year and we certainly started with a bang - a super informative trip to Magna.  All the children were engrossed in all the activities and we had a really great day, despite the weather. The driver on our coach thanked the children for a lovely trip he said it was the best trip he had ever had with any children, needless to say I was extremely proud.
Have a look at our photo's on the gallery.

The children are really back into the school routine and are working very hard, long may this continue.

Our Topic this half term is ‘Called to Change’.

In this topic, we will learn how Jesus called people to change and turn away from sin. How Jesus taught forgiveness and recognise reconciliation as a celebration of God’s love and forgiveness. We will understand what happens during the sacrament of reconciliation. We will learn how we can change during Lent.

Spring 1 - 2018

English

 

This half term we will be looking at the picture book ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker.

We will use the book to work on: sentence structure using adverbials of time and place to open sentences.

Use embedded relative clauses to add detail and mark with commas.

Check punctuation and use speech marks and apostrophes accurately.

We will have a specific grammar focus each week and will also continue to practice the year 3/4 spelling words and homophones.

Guided reading sessions will take place each week.

Maths
This half term we will be looking at number, multiplication and Division. Children will use their knowledge of multiplication and division facts to compare statements using inequality symbols.

Children will multiply and divide a two-digit number by one digit.

 

Times tables will remain a focus, so we will be regularly working on times tables to be able to mentally multiply facts up to 12 x 12.

 

We will use our reasoning and problem solving skills weekly to use and apply our learning.

Topic

We will be starting our new topic of ‘What makes the Earth angry?’

In this physical geography topic, we will be looking at extreme weather and natural disasters such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis.

Autumn 2 -2017

English

Year 3 have been enjoying a mix of interesting sub-topics this half term. They have been learning all about the difference between a main and subordintaing clause, as well as what formal and informal language is. The children have really enjoyed looking at letters and their features and have planned and written their own complaint letters using formal language.

Maths

Multiplication and division has been our biggest focus this half term as it is a requirement that the children are able to recall all multiplication facts up to 2x12 over the coming year or so. 


Autumn 1

English


In Roald Dahl week this week, we have been learning about the story of the BFG.
We  all loved the brilliant performance on Monday morning and we felt inspired to learn more about the amazing story.
We have been practising our dictionary and thesaurus skills, coming up with exciting words to describe Sophie and the BFG. We found replacement words such as colossal and menacing.

We have also planned and written our very own recount from Sophie’s point of view, when she was snatched out of her bed by the BFG.
We had to put ourselves in her shoes and think about how she would be feeling at each point in the scene.


Maths

In Maths this half term, Year 3 have been practising their place value skills and are now working on their addition and subtraction methods. We are beginning to become experts at using written methods to solve trickier sums! 
 

RUCSAC challenges.

Topic
Our topic for this term is 'The Stone Age'. We will be going back in time to see the differences between our ancestors and the way we live today. We will have the opportunity to learn about different cave paintings, before having a go ourselves!

Year 3 and 4 joined forces for a Stone Age/Bronze Age workshop and assembly and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
