Mars – Year 3

My name is Miss Donkin (Miss D) and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, the children have Ms Hanifan supporting them with their work too.

This half term we will be learning lots of new and exciting things. Some topics we will cover are; ‘Roman Rule’, ‘Reign over us’ and ‘Britain from the air’. We will be learning all about our topics through our creative curriculum of art, dance, D&T, music and P4C.

In English we will be looking at a variety of texts and writing stories, changing settings, adding in characters and a lot more!

Now that the children are in the juniors they will need to bring their own fruit for a playtime snack. I will remind them to take this to the playground. The children will also be learning Spanish once a week, Recorder in Music and Coding/Computing clubs with Natwest and Discovery Three.

In science we will be learning about rocks, electricity, plants and the environment which links nicely to our topics throughout the year.

In Maths the children will be working their way through the year 3 National Curriculum in a fun and interactive way using the Singapore approach. It is really important that the children keep learning their 3, 4 and 8 times tables through the year in school and at home. The more practise the better!!

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE on a Wednesday where children must bring their PE Kits.
