Year 3 2021 - 2022
Miss Rochell - Gill
Year 3 Teacher
Maths and Geography Lead
Welcome to Year Three!
I am so happy to welcome you to the beginning of your Key Stage Two adventure! This is one of the most exciting half terms full of new routines, new experiences and some much-awaited 'normality' after such a crazy 18 months during lockdown and home learning. Your children have settled in brilliantly so far and I am already so impressed with each and every one of them.
This year, our PE slots will take place on a MONDAY and WEDNESDAY.
Please endeavour to ensure that full PE kit is worn on Monday and Wednesday. It is advised that children wear trainers rather than plimsolls to provide greater support, particularly when taking part in PE outdoors. In addition to this, my PPA will be covered by Mrs Mawrey on Wednesdays.
You can follow our learning journey via our school twitter account, @LittleLeighSch, where I will post updates and pictures.
If you need to discuss anything with me, please don't hesitate to contact me on my school email firstname.lastname@example.org or the school admin team via email who will be more than happy to pass your message on.
Here's to another fabulous year of learning, growing and having fun!
Our first theme of Year Three will be focused on...
THE STONE AGE!
'How did Neanderthals live in the Stone Age?'
Throughout this historical theme we will be focusing on understanding Prehistory and particularly the Stone Age period. We will investigate artefacts, make predictions and explore what it took to live and more importantly survive within this time period. We will have lots of opportunities to work practically - just as archaeologists and historians do!
With our key focus in mind, we will be enjoying a number of brilliant fiction and non-fiction texts linked to the Stone Age.
As Writers...we will explore two fantastic texts that I am certain the children will love. We will begin by looking at instructional writing using the wonderful text 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' and even following instructions to make our own mammoths! Following on from this we will use 'Stone Age Boy' as a vehicle text to plan and write our own Stone Age adventure stories.
As Mathematicians...we will be focusing on consolidating and developing our knowledge of place value up to 1000.
As always we will continue to practise our times tables through a variety of formats in addition to TT Rockstars practice at home.
Please find some of my favourite songs to help with times table recall linked below:
Hit the Button is also another fantastic online resource that aims to build confidence in multiplication and division recall.
As Scientists...we are going to investigate rocks and soils! We will be classifying, comparing and testing rocks for their properties to determine their uses. We will also look at how rocks are formed including volcanoes!
