Happy New Year!
We can’t wait to get our 2019 started with some MAGIC learning. In English, we will be looking at a range of text types including persuasive letters, instructions, adventure stories and poetry (Haiku and Tanka). We will also be working on our English target - making good word choices (adjectives, prepositions, adverbs, nouns & verbs) by using a dictionary/thesaurus. It is always helpful to practise these skills at home, why not try looking for definitions using an online dictionary?
In Maths, we are continuing to explore multiplication and division for the first few weeks of term – looking closely at multiplying 2-digit by 1-digit numbers. We will then move onto statistics with lots of focus on bar graphs, pictograms and tables.
We are extremely excited about our topics. We will start by looking at the UK in Geography, before learning about the History of Romans in Britain during our second half-term. The children will continue to develop their vocabulary in French by learning to introduce themselves (Je me présente) – be sure to practise at home and bonne chance!
The children have settled back in quickly following the holidays and are showing excellent learning in the classroom. We are all looking forward to start our new topics this term.
All the best,
Mrs Davis, Ms Stocking, Mr Evans and all the Year 3 team.
