This term in Year 3, our Power of Reading book is, ‘African Tales’ [an intriguing book which contains eight African tales. Each tale demonstrates the richness of the African culture - filled with wonderful illustrations and packed with information.
In Literacy we will use this book to enhance our learning and to create fables and stories from other culture. We will continue to develop our overall writing skills, as we bring together all the knowledge and skills we have learnt in the first two terms in Literacy.
In Mathematics this term, pupils will continue to develop their knowledge of adding and subtracting money. We will use real life scenarios to enable the pupils to apply their skill into everyday context. The pupils will also explore 2D and 3D shapes ,they will learn in detail the types of lines that make up these shapes and how they can be grouped. Afterwards, they will move on to position and direction - learning how to move points and shapes around a set of axis.
In History, the pupils will explore the ancient world of the ancient Egyptians. They will investigate, compare and question the life of the ancient Egyptians, looking closely at their way of life, their traditions such as mummifications and their beliefs in ancient Gods. We will research the social hierarchy and imagine life in those days for the slaves and the pharaohs.
For Design and Technology the pupils will explore drawing faces and will deepen their skills weekly to where they will be recreating an Egyptian Pharaoh mask.
In Science, the pupils will continue the ‘Animals including Humans’ topic. The pupils will learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the impact it can have on our lives. We will have the opportunity to discuss food groups and the impact it has on our bodies daily basis.
We would like to remind parents that arrangements for PE and Swimming will be exactly the same as in Spring Term, so ensure the correct kit is in school at the correct times.
We love school!
