Year 3 2023 - 2024

Miss Breen

Summer Term 2024

What a fantastic year we have had together so far in Year 3! Well done for all of your hard work! For our final term together we have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned, including a hands-on Rainforest animals workshop and Swimming.

In English, we will be using The Snow Dragon by Vivian French as a foundation for our narrative writing and The Big Blue Whale by Nicola Davies as a foundation for our persuasive writing.

In Maths, we will be blending learning from last year, to ensure that each of you accesses learning at the appropriate level of challenge for you. We will be focusing on fractions, time, shape, mass and capacity including problem-solving, statistics and investigative maths.

In Religious Education, our new topic will explore Easter and Pentecost. After half-term we will focus on the topic of Being a Christian. Furthermore, this term we will also be making the Sacraments of First Forgiveness and First Holy Communion.

In Science, our topic will focus on parts of plants and what plants need to survive. We will be writing an explanation text to increase our understanding of the honey-making process. 

In our Topic lessons, we will be exploring different types of Land Use. Next term, we will focus on the rainforest and we will be visited by some very exciting rainforest animals!

We also have lots more exciting learning planned in PE, Spanish, Forest School, Music, Art, Technology and Computing. 

Our PE days this term are Tuesday and Thursday, so please come to school dressed in your PE kit on these days. This term we will be going swimming on Thursdays.

You are always welcome to chat with myself after school, or to make an appointment.  Thank you once more for your ongoing support.  Together everyone achieves more, so it is much appreciated.
