Year 3: Mrs Gargan 2018 - 2019

Mrs Gargan

Welcome to Year 3 or Holly Class with Mrs Gargan and Mrs Botcherby.

This half term PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and Thursday so could you please ensure that children have their PE kits in school on these days.

Homework books will be marked on a Thursday ready to go home on Friday (on a normal week!), the pyramid challenge is glued in the front of the books so children can choose different tasks each week, points for each task will be added up and children can earn a certificate as detailed on the sheet.

Spellings will be handed out on a Monday on handwriting paper so children can practise both skills and they will be tested on Friday.

Reading books can be changed throughout the week and children will be given opportunities to go and change their books in the library.

This term we will be studying a variety of topics as detailed below:

Maths – place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and perimeter of shape. We are also learning our 4 x tables

English – we will be using some lovely texts to help our writing. Journey, Escape from Pompeii and Charlie and the Chocolate factory, from these we will be writing an adventure story, newspaper report, letter, set of instructions and a persuasive advert.

Science – the first few weeks will be a revision of Year 2 topics before we start learning about forces and magnets.

Geography – the focus this half term will be the Mediterranean, finding out why people visit the area and how life is different to our own country. We shall be using Italy to compare and more specifically the area around Mount Vesuvius and Naples.

History – we will be looking at the Anglo-Saxons, why they invaded Britain, where they came from and how they lived and fought. We will be having a visitor coming in to school to run a workshop with Years 3 and 4 and immerse them in Anglo-Saxon life!

If that wasn’t enough we will also be studying French, RE, PHSE and music, phew!!!

We hope you find this information useful but please feel free to pop in after school if you have any questions.
