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 rainforest tribes, plants and animals, and even delve into deforestation! 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 ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ and ‘The Vanishing Rainforest’. In tinkology the children will develop their own interpretations of the rainforest. In Maths we shall be revisiting number, 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.
