Wonder, Believe, Shine & Achieve - Welcome to Year 3!
During the Summer Term, Year 3 will be taking on board their own learning, through the topic of ‘The Rainforest’. We will study the Amazon and Borneo Rainforests, researching tribes, plants and animals. We will look at the effects of deforestation and reflect on how we can make a change. In science, the study of plants will help to develop the children’s knowledge in order to link into their learning. Our literacy texts will also enhance their learning, including ‘Running Wild’, ‘The Great Kapok Tree’, ‘Where the Forest Meets the Sea’, ‘The Vanishing Rainforest’ and ‘Greta’s Story’. In Maths, we shall be revisiting number, statistics, fractions and time and we shall continue to develop their problem solving and reasoning skills.
On a weekly basis, children are expected to complete one page of their English skills and Maths skills books. This homework will be set on a Monday and expected back on a Friday.
In addition to this written homework, the children must:
· Read regularly with an entry in their reading record books.
· Practise their times tables.
· Practise their spellings.
