Summer Term 2019
We are looking forward to beginning a new topic about the Stuarts and finding out about this period of History.
In Maths, we will be revising different topics that we covered earlier in the year. In English we will be focusing on adventure stories and our Science topic will be 'How does your garden grow.' Related to this topic, we will be having a trip to the Birmingham Nature Centre.
We would like the children to continue to practise their spellings and multiplication tables. We would also like them to continue to read regularly at home.
End of Spring Term
Well it’s the end of a very exciting and busy Spring Term for Year 3. We can’t believe that we are over half way through the year already!
We have enjoyed learning about The Romans this term and thoroughly enjoyed our visit from the Roman soldier, who certainly put us through our paces!
In Maths we have learnt Fractions, Measures, Money, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division and interpreting data.
In English we have studied Myths, Legends and Fables, non-chronological reports, poetry and we have recently used the short film, ‘The Present, as a visual prompt for diary and play writing.
We thoroughly enjoyed both our visit to Birmingham Library and the Easter Trail in school and we hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures from both of these events.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Easter and thank you for supporting your children throughout this term.
