Mars – Year 3

 Welcome to Mars Class!

I am Miss Leane and this year I am teaching Mars class. The children also have Mr Davis and Mrs Yasmin in the class supporting them with their learning.

Our Topic this half term is ‘Tomb Raiders’ where we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians.

We will look at key history skills through creative tasks. We will also be working on Art and DT skills for our year group which will include designing and making our own canopic jar and sketching and shading an Egyptian headdress.

We will be learning lots of new songs as part of our Charanga scheme whilst using our classroom instruments to support with this.

Our English story this term is ‘Adventures at Sandy Cove’. The children will learn the story through role play, text mapping and games. We will explore the text in detail before planning and writing our own adventure stories.

In Maths we will focus heavily on addition and subtraction. We will use the White Rose Maths scheme and follow a concrete, pictorial, abstract process.

PE with Mr Slade (sport’s coach) is on Wednesday morning. The children did so well in their intensive swimming lessons! 

The children will have a daily reading lesson at school and will take a text home to read every evening. On Thursdays a text will be set for your child to read on ‘bug club’.

Homework will be set on google classroom on a Thursday and will need to be completed in the child’s homework book and brought back to school for the following Wednesday to be marked.

Thank you for your ongoing support, we have had a lot of fun so far in Mars Class!
