Welcome to Year 3!
The children are settling in well and we are looking forward to a busy term. We will be working on a range of text types including stories based in a familiar setting, poetry, non-chronological reports and persuasive writing. We will start with Anthony Browne’s ‘The Tunnel’, building on our understanding of adjectives to write descriptive texts.
In Maths, we will be exploring place value, addition and subtraction as well as multiplication and division. We will be using equipment (Dienes, place value counters and Numicon) to help us learn.
Our topics for this half-term include Ancient Civilisations and we will also learn about historical figures during Remembrance Week. The children will be introduced to French and will aim to learn the basic colours and some vocabulary based around Christmas – très intéressant!
We can’t wait for the children to continue showing us their ‘MAGIC’ skills across the exciting curriculum this Autumn term.
