Year 3 (Bramley) 2019 - 2020
Year 3 Class Teacher
Welcome back Bramley class! We hope you feel rested and excited for the spring term we have planned. We are looking forward to continuing to explore the wonders of the year 3 curriculum.
In our English sessions this term we will first be looking at explanantion texts and how these differ from other types of texts; we will further look into diary writing and traditional fairy tales, this will allow us to have debates and discussions in relation to fairy tales and how perspectives may change a story.
Entering into the spring term the children will solidify their timestable knowledge with the class getting in practice as much as possible throughout term. Our first topic will be multiplication and division looking specicifically at problem solving rather than a standard calculation. We will continue the term with money, statistics, length and finishing off the spring term with fractions.
In science this term we will be looking at magnets and the way they work, the children will be exploring how magnets effect each other.
In our topic based lessons we will be finishing up the stone age and delving into the world of the Romans, we will be looking at Roman life and comparing how they lived then to how we live now. We will further look to what changes the romans made in britain that we can still see today.
Continuing on from the first term we will work to gain a greater understanding of the spanish language, covering a range of topics chosen by the children in the previous term. These include, clothing types, fruit, animals, colours and numbers up to 20.
In computing this term the children will familiarise themselves with the keys on a computer, this will allow them to become competent and quicker at typing when on a computer, using Powerpoint, Word and Excel, this will prove useful in the future, both in late KS2 and secondary school.
- PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday. The PE session on the Tuesday will be swimming and therfore the children will need to remember to bring their swimming kit and a towel. PE kits as usual are required to be in school at all times as we will be having additional sessions whenever possible.
- Homework will be sent out on a Wednesday and due back in on a Monday (when we will have our spelling test).
If there is anything else we can help you with, or any questions, please come and speak to myself or Mrs Popplewell and we will be happy to help.
We are looking forward to an exciting new year entering into the spring term.
Mr Jennings and Mrs Popplewell
