Mars – Year 3

Welcome to Mars Class!

Mars Class Timetable

Our Topic this half term is ‘China’ where we will be working on our Geography skills and exploring different Landmarks in China. In History we will compare Schools in China to schools in England. We will do this all through creative tasks, have a special ‘China’ food day and be inspired by different Chinese artists and designers.

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

In English this term we will be looking at Recounts, before writing our own. We will then move on to Description writing. We will carefully learn the structure of these texts and focus on key grammar skills from the Year 3 Curriculum.

In reading, we will focus on a new text type each week with our group. Miss Leane will read with each group at least once a week. Each child will practise doing a play with their group.

In Maths we will focus heavily on fractions. 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 mornings and on Monday mornings we will have PE with Miss Leane.

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!
