Welcome to Kingfishers with Miss Chapman and Mrs Crump, we are still 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.
Our topic question this term is ‘Is a 21st century child healthier than a stone age child?’ and we will be investigating the differences between the lifestyles. We will hold a Stone Age day, where we experience life as a Stone Age child and compare life to modern day.
In English we will be beginning the term by reading the novel ‘How to wash a woolly mammoth’; this will inspire us to write a range of different genres and text types, including both fiction and non-fiction. In mathematics, we will begin the term focusing on fractions, including adding and subtracting fractions. We will also cover geometry and time later in the term.
Art this term will be taught by Mrs Morton and they will be creating realistic drawings of natural objects. We will also be creating our own Stone Age drawings in class. Computing is creating a program using Code and e-safety lessons to make sure children are using the internet safely. PE will be taught by Mr Jackson this term on a Wednesday afternoon and an additional time on a Thursday or Friday afternoon, PE should be kept in school.
Homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday. It is important that children are reading 5 times a week, and that this is signed off in their reading logs. The children also need to be fluent in their 3x, 4x and 8x tables.
