Welcome

Welcome to Term 3, it’s hard to believe that at the end of this term, just 4 weeks away, we are halfway through this academic year.

Maths

We still follow ‘White Rose Maths’, and for this term we shall be covering ‘Multiplication and Division’, leading onto ‘Money’. This will focus on the language involved in these themes and problem solving and reasoning skills

English

Our theme this term is ‘The Wild Robot’ by Peter Brown. The children are already hooked by this fabulous and original story, rich in language, which will hopefully elevate the children’s writing still further. So far we have thoroughly enjoyed teaching it and the children are absorbed! At the end of the story, the children will be required to produce a ‘Hot Write’ that will form a ‘sequel’ to the story and our lessons are designed to teach the skills and concepts required to do this

Physical Education

Our ‘PE Day’ is still MONDAY, so if the children could come to school in their PE Kits, that would be really helpful. This term we are learning about Hockey when we block PE on Week 3 (Week beginning 17th January), if the children could have a mouth guard too, that would make them safer with regard to being hit by a stray hockey stick. Although this rarely happens, we cannot be too careful. However, this is not compulsory, so if, for whatever reason, children do not have a mouth guard, they will work with plastic, as opposed to wooden sticks. Our Weekly PE lessons focus on ‘Tudor Dancing’.

Religious Education

Term 3’s RE unit is ‘The Holy Trinity’…there are some really interesting stories to be had from The Bible and we shall be learning about God, The Father, God, The Son and God, The Holy Spirit. The concept of The Holy Spirit is a very abstract one and it is fascinating to see children’s responses to these concepts in their written work and drawings.

Other subjects covered this term are….

Geography

Local Geography around Kingsnorth and 8 compass points.

History

The Sone Age leading onto The Bronze Age.

Also, the children will be taking part in the annual RSPB survey where they will count the various bird-types that visit our gardens.

 

If you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to ask.

Communication

We are well aware that we have been unable to talk to you as much as we would like. Usually this week, parents are invited to come and see your child’s new teacher, where we explain basic class and school routines, expectations and the Year 3 curriculum…as well as giving parents and carers the opportunity to ask questions. It is also more difficult to talk to parents ‘at the door’ as children are being dropped off and collected. We know this is far from ideal, but you are more than welcome to E-mail us and we will get back to you in that way or call you. If there is anything more pressing, or you simply want to say ‘Hello’ and break the ice, you can usually do so at the end of the day when you collect the children.
