Welcome to Kingfishers with Miss Chapman and Mrs Crump, we are enjoying being in Year 3. We are always learning something new and exciting and always working hard to be the best possible versions of ourselves.
In English we will be beginning the term by reading the novel Stone Girl, Bone girl, the story of Mary Anning. This will inspire us to write a range of different text types. We will be visiting a local beach to see where Mary Anning lived and completed her research.
In mathematics, we will begin the term focusing on multiplication and division, including recalling and using the 3, 4, and 8 times table. We will also cover money and how to give change; statistics and how to create and interpret graphs and charts; measurement and how to add, subtract and compare measurements; and fractions including recognising and using fractions to solve problems.
Our topic this term is ‘Active Planet’ and our end goal is to raise money for Shelter Box, which gives relief to countries affected by natural disasters. We will be looking at the natural earth, including mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes and how they are created and their different aspects.
Art this term will be taught by Mrs Morton and they will be creating realistic drawings of natural objects. Computing is creating a program using Scratch and how to use the internet safely. PE will be taught by Mr Jackson this term on a Monday morning.
Homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday.
