Green 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Green Class
We are a Year 3 class taught by Mr Robinson, supported by Mrs Inskip, Miss Grindley and Mr. Richards.
This is what we will be learning in the Summer term:
We still have a huge emphasis on learning the times tables so please encourage your child to go on Times tables Rockstars daily. You will be able to find a link to this on the school website.
We will also be focusing on fractions and time whilst continuing to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be applying all that we have learnt to try and answer real life problems. Children find time difficult to understand so please could you help them learn o’clock, half past, quarter to and past and time to 5 minute intervals.
We will be writing an Egyptian mystery narrative and a diary entry recounting the discovery of a new artefact. In these topics, we will be working on using inverted commas for direct speech, fronted adverbials, prepositions and rhetorical questions.
However, our biggest focus continues to be on reading as it is fundamental to your child’s wider academic development. Therefore it is crucial to read to and listen to your child read a broad range of texts. It is even more vital to read to them this term after a protracted absence from school. Please read 4 or more times a week whilst asking questions about the text to help improve their comprehension. Please go on Bug Club as there are books ideally levelled at your child’s ability with questions for them to answer that are designed to improve their reading comprehension skills.
History: World War 2
n this topic, will be looking at life on the home front. This will include evacuations, air raids, rationing and entertainment.
Geography: The UK
We will take a look at the geography of the UK - from the physical features of mountains, rivers and seas to the man-made administrative regions and counties. They will find out how the UK has changed over time, looking at how London grew and how the population of the UK as a whole has changed throughout the course of history.
We will be learning how to program using Turtle Logo and Scratch. This will include creating a set of instructions and learning how to debug their programme.
We will learn the names of different parts of plants, and the jobs they do. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate what plants need to grow well, and will present their findings to their classmates. Furthermore, they will have chance to predict what will happen in an exciting investigation into the transportation of water within plants.
We follow this with learning about famous scientist and inventors such as Marie Curie, George Washington Carver and Mary Anning.
The children will explore artist such as Julian Opie and Henry Moore and how they drew/sculptured human bodies. We will be using charcoal, felt-tips and make maquettes.
Design Technology: The Great Bread Bake Off
In this unit, we will be learning to evaluate, design and make bread.
We will learn about Jewish symbols and artefacts and the lives of Moses and Abraham.
Music: French Songs and the Human Body
The children will be learning songs in French and about the body.
Outdoor sessions are on a Wednesday. Our indoor PE will be on Monday. Please remember to come to school dressed in the appropriate PE uniform.
This will usually be set on Class Dojo on Friday and to be completed by Wednesday. Please make sure your child goes on TTRockstars, Spelling Shed, Bug Club and reads at least 4 times a week..
Reading: At Weston, we encourage children to develop a life long love for reading. We ask that children read regularly at home to adults and to themselves. Reading is fundamental to the wider academic and personal development of children. The need for children to read widely from a broad and challenging range of texts is crucial. Children will be provided with quality texts appropriate for their age and ability. Furthermore, Bug Club will regularly be updated with ebooks and accompanying comprehension tasks to help extend learning and reading skills further.
