Summer Term in 3L

Summer term in year 3

Welcome to the final term of year 3, we have a busy and action-packed term ahead!

IMPORTANT NOTES:

PE lessons will be every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school. This should be black shorts, pumps and a plain white t shirt or Corrie PE top.

 

Please find below what we will be learning about:

Autumn 1

Maths:

In maths we will continue using Power Maths and will start the term by focusing on fractions before looking at time. Please practise telling the time as much as possible with your child at home. We will then learn about angles and properties of shapes before moving onto mass and capacity.

English:

In English, we will start the term by looking at Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit, which tells the true story of the volcanic eruption in Pompeii in 79AD. Children will look at writing descriptive recounts of the volcano erupting before writing their own newspaper reports about the eruption. We will then look at The Tear Thief by Carol-Ann Duffy about a thief who each night collects the tears of children who cry. We will use this story as inspiration to write a persuasive poster and a letter of explanation. We will continue to embed year 3 SPaG throughout all of our writing.

Topic: Extreme Earth

Our geography topic this term is Extreme Earth. We will look at the structure of the Earth and will be investigating what causes volcanoes and earthquakes. We will then look at the impact of a natural disaster and what to do during a natural disaster. We will learn about other extreme weather such as tornadoes and tsunamis and identify patterns in weather around the world.

 

Science: Plants and Rocks and Soils

We will continue learning about what plants need and the functions of all the different parts of the plant. We will then move on to learning about Rocks and soils. The children will recognise that below the surface of Earth is rock which they may not be able to see. They will understand that over time rocks have been broken down to form smaller rocks, pebbles, stones and eventually soils. They will recognise that there are different rocks and different soils which have different properties and appearances. Children will identify, name and describe different rocks. They will compare and group different rocks and soils based on appearance and properties.

 

PHSE: JIGSAW: Relationships and Changing Me

The children will learn how babies grow, outside and inside body changes, family stereotypes and look ahead to next year in school and further as they grow up.

RE: What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today?

In RE the children will learn more about the Hindu faith and the different beliefs and traditions. We will then look at what it means for people being a Hindu in modern Britain.

PE: Athletics, hockey, cricket, football
