Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome Year 3 students and parents to our class page.
As the class teacher for Year 3, I am looking forward to getting to know the children and helping them on their learning journey.
Check this page for regular updates concerning what the children will be doing/have been doing in the classroom as well as general key information that you need to know.
Summer Term Topic - Africa (Lion King)
Thursday 25th April - Heroes Day
Core Subject Information- w/b 23rd April 2019
The children will be learning about what it means for an animal to be endangered. They will be writing explanation texts in the form of a historical recount to explain how the gorilla and orang-utan have become endangered over time. They will focus on the causes and most significant factors as well as identifying how changes have occurred and how the narrative of these animals' endangerment has progressed.
The children will be learning about equivalent fractions, understanding what the term means and learning how to find simple equivalents. We will move onto comparing fractions. Daily 5 will cover other aspects of fractions, length and the 4 operations.
The children will be learning about habitats of African-based animals and how these animals have needed to adapt to their surroundings to survive.
The children will be listening to the class reader and completing basket activities which allow the children to practise a variety of skills. They will continue to annotate, discuss and eventually answer comprehension skills-based questions on these.
Our value for this term is Friendship.
