Year 3 (Bramley) 2020 - 2021
Year 3 Class Teacher
Dear Parents/Carers and Children,
Welcome back Bramley Class, I hope you all has a restful christmas break and are coming back eager to learn.
Despite the children being at home, we will continue teaching a full curriculum as we would at school with as few changes as possible.
We begin this term by diving into Greek Myths, we will look at the mighty minotaur and the mischievous gods who make up the myths we're studying. We will then look at recounts and how to format a newspaper article looking back at events we may remember from last year.
Maths will continue to build on prior knowledge not only from year 2 but what we have learnt in Autumn term. We will begin this term by looking at money and its differing forms. Adding, subtracting and multiplying money all of which will become useful in later life. We will still look at a series of methods to get the correct answer to a question, and find a method that suits your child. We will be covering: Money, length, multiplication and division and fractions. Please continue to work with your children at home and practise what they have learnt and will be learning throughout this year.
Science this term is very exciting pulling us closer learning through magnets and the forces around us. We will further explore the life around looking at plants their parts and what their life cycle.
Topic sessions in the Spring term revolve around the Romans, we will look at many things from battle formations to how they helped shaped the UK today.
Our computing sessions in the spring term will look at how to use Word and Microsoft Powerpoint, tools and skills that will be with your children throughout their lives. Alongside our classroom learning I encourage you to use Sumdog, Education City and Times Tables Rockstars, this will inform the learning we are doing in class and help the children learn through games.
Outdoor learning will be pivotal this year and our PE lessons are no exception, the children will be introduced to many games and activities honing their skills and competitive natures this year, from running laps to dancing the world of sport awaits them.
As we enter the spring term the children will need to be in their PE kit. This includes appropriate footwear. Please ensure that your childs PE kit is in school on a Monday so they have it for the week ahead. Thank you for your cooperation.
Our homework will continue to go home on a Wednesday and return on a Monday. We also complete our spelling tests on a Monday morning.
This year homework will be sent through Teams and books. (I will spend time teaching them how to use Teams properly and appropriately).
If you have any questions or worries, please email me or you can make a book and appointment with our office staff.
Mr Jennings & Mrs Popplewell
