Year 3 (Bramley) 2021 - 2022
Year 3 Class Teacher
Dear Parents/guardians and children,
Welcome to Bramley class! It has been lovely to see how well everyone has settled in. I hope you are all looking forward to a fun filled first term.
During the first few weeks of this half term, the children will be going over a selection of ‘Humorous Poems’, which have been written by a number of different poets. We will then move onto instructional texts which will focus on chronological writing. This will allow them to build on their knowledge from year 2. This will then be followed by ‘Scary Stories’ which we will also be carrying over into our guided reading sessions throughout the week.
After half term, the children will be learning how to write a recount and this will focus on developing their explanation, retrieval and summarising skills.
In Maths we will build on our current knowledge of numbers and the number system, fractions, measures and geometry from year 2. We will continue to learn new strategies for working out problems and there will be a focus on developing our 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
We will be starting off the term looking at different types of rocks and soil in the world around us. We will be looking at the ways we can classify rocks, how the earth is made and how we use rocks in our everyday lives without realising. After half-term, we will be looking at light and how our eyes work and adapt to different types of light.
This term in History we will be focusing on the advancement from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, paying particular attention to the development of houses and style of living. After half term, our geography topic will be pollution and we will be discussing how Colnbrook is particularly affected by this.
This term the children will be focusing on how to greet others in Spanish alongside learning to count to 10, introducing themselves and saying how old they are.
As a class, we will focus on how animations are made using different applications and we will then be creating our own animations using different features.
Our whole class focus for this term will be Sikhism. We will be searching for the answer to the following question; Does joining the Khalsa make a person a better Sikh?
Art, DT and Music
Our art lessons this term will consist of learning about prehistoric sketches and then finally creating our own. For DT we will be focusing on seasonal foods and this will allow us to create our own unique dishes. During our music lessons, we will be learning all about ballads and as a final task, performing our own.
The children will begin the term by developing their skills in 'Quicksticks' and then will participate in indoor athletics. PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Children are expected to come into school wearing their PE kit on these days.
- Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
- The children are expected to read every day for a minimum of 15 minutes. Please ensure this is recorded in their reading records as these will be collected every Monday and Friday.
If there is anything else I can help you with, or if you have any questions, please do come and speak to me and I will be happy to help.
The year 3 team is looking forward to an exciting year with a fantastic class!
