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 swimming on a Wednesday.

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 homework 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 Tuesday for children to glue in their planners, 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 –  multiplication and division, time and fractions. We are also learning our 4 and 8 x tables and will continue to practise 2,3,5 and 10 times tables.

English – we will be turning traditional tales around and using the Wolf's Story and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs to write our own version of a traditional tale, we will also create a newspaper report and do some persuasive writing. Then we will move on to The Big Blue Whale, Into the Forest and The Egyptian Cinderella, these texts will help us to write our own non-chronological reports and diary entries.

Science – our first science topic will be all about rocks and fossils.

Geography – the focus this half term will be land use, finding out how Italy differs to the UK and what natural resources each country has.

History – we will be finishing our Anglo-Saxons topic and moving on to The Egyptians, more information about that later...

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.
