Welcome to Year Three! The school year is passing very quickly and we are just about to begin our last half term in Year 3. So far in the Summer Term, we have been learning about Myths and Legends where we wrote our own Myth. We have also been researching and investigating Rocks in Science and have found out about their properties and their uses.

 

Next half term we are going to be looking at Recounts and we will be writing our own newspaper articles by retelling the main events in chronological order. Our topic is 'Life's a Stage' and we will be researching different theatres and comparing them. We will also be doing some drama in English and making our own Greek masks.

 

In Maths we will be learning about fractions, as well as focusing on Geometry by looking at the properties of shapes and also positioning. Animals, including humans, is our topic in Science this coming half term and we will be finding out about nutrition and healthy living. We are looking forward to a great end to the school year and can't wait to show you everything we have done this year at our Open Evening at the end of term.
