Welcome to Year 3 :)
Class Teacher - Miss Allemann
Class TA - Mrs Proctor
Welcome back to school and well done for settling in so fantastically well. This term our topic is Fizzwizards and Frobscottle. We will be diving into a world full of giants, snozzcumbers and dreams.
In English, the children will be using the text ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl as inspiration for their writing. This will also help the children to build links with their topic work. Through this text, the children will explore features of instructions and will develop their writing skills, focusing particularly on sentence structure, in order to write their own newspaper report. The children will have the opportunity to write their own newspaper report and advertisement. As well as building on character description and descriptive writing, children will use imperative verbs to write a set of instructions.
In Maths, the children will continue to develop their understanding of addition and subtraction. They will also be developing their mental maths skills, paying particular attention to recalling number facts quickly and accurately. Children will expand their knowledge and understanding of place value through practical and written work, and will develop their understanding of properties of arithmetic.
Across all of these areas of Maths, children will be required to apply their skills to problem solving.
In science we will be learning all about how we can keep ourselves and our friendly giant healthy! We will be looking at how diet and exercise affects us and why it is important to have muscles and bones.
