Year 3 - Firenze

With the Summer Holidays just around the corner, we are working extremely hard!

 

This term we will be continuing to practice column addition and column subtraction as well as formal expanded methods of multiplication and division in Maths. We are getting very good at using them to help us and will continue to apply it to help us solve problems. We will continue to use a range of resources to support our progress. Keep revising your 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables and learning the rest (6,7,9,11,12) will prepare you well for Year 4.

 

Our Iron Man book by Ted Hughes is already producing some fabulous writing and poetry and the children are really enjoying finding out more about our main characters. We are excited to see what will happen in the rest of the story! 

 

We are going to be having a special visitor on Monday 24th June to help us learn more about Ancient Greece - a letter has been sent out so please return by Wednesday 19th June. 

 

In Science we will be looking at how we see forces, in particular how magnets work.  We will be investigate different materials and test if they are magnetic or not.

 

Please make sure your PE kit is definitely in school from a Monday and stays in for the week. As this is a very busy term, we may not always do P.E on the same day each week so having kit in school will help everyone join in. 

 

Our Forest School day is: Tuesday 25th June. Mrs Hughes has asked if children could please make sure they bring in suitable clothes, a waterproof coat and wellies if it has been raining.
