Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 3!
In Maths, we will be continuing our learning about multiplications and division. Then, we will move on to learning about fractions. Finding equivalent fractions, adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator.
Our class book for this term is ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’. In English, we will be using the story ‘Where the Wild Things are ‘as a class book as inspiration for persuasive writing. We will continue to focus on our use of expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials and powerful verbs to add interest and detail to our writing.
Reading, spelling and handwriting will continue on a weekly basis.
Our topic for spring is ‘Where the Wild Things are.’ We will be using ‘Wild Thing island’ as a basis for our learning about extreme Earth events such as tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes.
In Science, we will be investigating the properties of rocks and soils. We will use our scientific skills to conduct experiments and discuss our findings.
In DT, we will be researching, designing and making our own Moving Monster using a pneumatic system.
In Art, we will be looking at the sculpture of Barbara Hepworth and creating our own pieces.
Mrs Lovejoy and Mrs Mahoney will be teaching French, Music, PSHE and RE in PPA over the whole of the Spring term.
