Welcome to class Nightingales
This half term our topic is ‘journey’. In literacy we will be looking at the book Journey by Aaron Becker and learning about compound sentences, using prepositions and adverbs for effect and exploring word families to extend our vocabulary. In maths we will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. In geography we will be using maps and atlases to describe different possible journeys as well as looking at different places around the world. In science we will be learning about different flowers and plants that we might encounter on different journeys and in DT we will be designing and creating our own machines to take us on a journey.
PE this year will be on Monday and Friday so PE kits will need to be in school every day.
What’s important to us in year 3?
* TTrock stars will take place every day and the children will be assigned a rock star status at the end of each week. Practising these at home via the TTrock stars website will help greatly.
* Reading continues to be a focus and reading books need to be in school EVERY day please.
* Water bottles need to be in school each day.
* Children can bring a healthy snack to school for morning play or some money to be a healthy snack from the kitchen.
