Year 3

Autumn Term 2018

What a Wonderful World! During the Autumn term, as part of the children's theme work, Year 3 will be mini-geographers, jetting off around the globe to learn about the 7 Wonders of the World. During this unit they will be studying what makes Bishop's Cleeve wonderful before using their map and research skills to gather information about the 7 modern Wonders of the World using a variety of exciting sources. Once they have become experts, they will then create their own PowerPoints about the 7 Wonders whilst developing their ICT skills in Computing lessons.

In Autumn 2, the children will then move onto developing their artistic skills during a sequence of lessons about the artist Andy Goldsworthy. In these sessions, the children will create their own land art and sculptures using natural materials such as leaves, twigs and anything else they can find in the great outdoors!

Gardening 

The children in year 3 are lucky enough to go outside and take part in some gardening with Mrs Sanders this term. They will be learning about how to take cuttings, plant plants and make a pebble hedgehog!

Maths

Maths is a favourite in Year 3! The daily maths lessons will be based upon the Year 3 maths curriculum. Children will work on individual targets which enable us to focus our teaching on the specific needs of our children, and set new and tailored targets on a regular basis. pupils will be encouraged to apply their learning in different contexts throughout learning sessions using our PACE acronym (Practise, Apply, Correct, Evaluate) with extra Create activities for children working at greater depth.

English

The children will be improving their descriptive writing skills this term whilst transporting their favourite characters into magical and mystical settings, as well as undertaking a unit on quest stories. In our non-fiction units, the children will be studying non-chronological reports and persuasive letters, just in time for when they are sending their letters to Father Christmas!

Homework 

Homework is sent out on Thursday and should be returned by the following Tuesday. This will alternate between English, Maths and Theme work. English and Maths homework will be based on the text type/VGPS skill or the maths focus for the week. Weekly spellings and times tables will also be sent home for the children to practise.

Reading

Children are expected to read regularly at home; please encourage them to do so. The aim is for the children to work their way up the reading tree in class. The more entries they have in their reading record, the more points that will be awarded, allowing them to move up the tree. 

Spring Term 2019

Our school 'Big idea' this term is 'Power'. As part of this, the children will be studying the artist Banksy whilst considering the power of expression. They will have a go at developing their creative skills whilst creating their own Banksy inspired pieces.

The children will also learn about powerful people in history including nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King, and how they have impacted our lives today. Leading on from this, the children will consider the power of equality.

Towards the latter part of the term, the children will then move onto developing their investigative and scientific skills through a unit on forces and magnets.

Throughout computing lessons, the children will be developing their programming skills.

Our PSHE sessions will see us looking at Internet safety and media influence.

We will continue to use the Charanga music scheme during our music sessions. We will be playing simple melodic patterns on both tuned instruments and our own instruments in group topic compositions.
