Year 3 - 3B & 3BR

Friday 20th September 2019

Our Topic

Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is ‘Rocks to Romans’ and we will be studying the Stone Age through to the Iron Age in term 1 and the Romans and their Invasion of Britain in term 2.

English

In English the children put their knowledge of the features of a comic strip into action by creating their own version based on the ‘Ug’ story. Their engagement with the text, as well as all of their learning about characterisation was put to use and they also had fun drawing the illustrations.

Maths

In Maths the children cemented their learning about place value by ordering numbers and exploring the different ways a number could be represented. The children have been drawing pictorial representations as well as working on problem solving questions.

RE
In RE the children are learning about what it means to be the ‘people of God’ and thinking about the experiences of some of the key characters in the Bible. This week we studied the story of Noah and started to learn about what a ‘Covenant’ is in the Bible.

Science

In Science we are studying ‘Rocks and Soils’. The children have observed different types of rock and their uses around the school grounds and learnt about the different layers which make up our planet earth.

History

This week in History we learnt about cave paintings. We looked at how and why they were created and we turned some parts of the classrooms into caves under which they drew their own paintings with crayons on brown paper.

                                      

 

                                      

 

 

Spellings

Spellings this week are words which use apostrophes for contractions.

 

Important information for our year group

  • Children need to bring a filled water bottle (water only please) to school each day.
  • They need to bring their own healthy snack to eat at break time.
  • They will be provided with a contact book and Reading Record to enable home/school communication. Please use these and read with your child as much as possible, writing the date and a comment in their Record.
  • Spellings will be given out weekly on a Friday and they will be tested the following Friday.
  • A homework information sheet will be given out fortnightly and so the children will have two weeks to complete these compulsory activities.
  • Our P.E. lessons are on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. It is expected that all children have their kit which is: House or Fermor Polo T-shirt, P.E. shorts and trainers.

Friday 6th September 2019
Welcome to year 3!

At the end of our first week the children have showed exceptional behaviour and have come to school with a positive attitude and being eager to learn. Well done!

This Week

We have been talking about our expectations and reminding the children about what it means to have a ‘Growth Mindset’ rather than a ‘Fixed Mindset’. At Sir Henry Fermor we believe that all can achieve their potential and have a ‘I can’t do that yet’ attitude. Each class has compiled a collaborative ‘Class Charter’ which will go up on the wall to remind children of their and our expectations and we hope this will make our year together the very best that it can be!

Our Topic

Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is ‘Rocks to Romans’ and we will be studying the Stone Age through to the Iron Age in term 1 and the Romans and their Invasion of Britain in term 2.

English

In English we remembered the fun we had over the summer holidays and wrote recounts and then read them to each other. We reminded ourselves of the features of a recount and we thought about the skills needed to read aloud well.

Maths

In Maths the children are securing their maths knowledge by learning about the foundational building block of ‘Place Value’ this term.

RE
In RE the children will be learning about what it means to be the ‘people of God’ and thinking about the experiences of some of the key characters in the Bible.

Science

In Science we are studying ‘Rocks and Soils’. We will be understanding and comparing rock formations, as well as the different types of soils and why soil is so important, and learning all about fossils.

History

Our first History lesson saw us imagining what it might have been like to live in the Stone Age. Our stunning start took us outside where the children had to try and communicate to each other without words, using sounds, actions and drawings. They had great fun expressing themselves and they produced some fantastic cave art style images using chalk on the playground.
