Our Learning

 

The Way, The Truth and The Life

Our topic this half term is 'The Christian Family.' We will think about what is means to be part of a family and we will listen to more stories about Jesus and his family. We look at a painting of Jesus in The Temple with his parents, titled 'Christ in The Temple' by Simone Martini and we will recreate our own modern day examples. We will learn more about the sacrament of Baptism and how a person becomes a member of the Christian family when they are baptised. 

Our topic for this term is Water, water everywhere. We will have a geographical focus and we will be thinking about places we have visited including coastal regions of the UK.

 

English

Our English lessons are based around the book, 'Seal Surfer'. This is about a boy and his grandfather who watch as a baby seal is born and from that day a special friendship is formed

 

 

Black History Month

As October is Black History Month, Class 3 are reading the book, "Who is Nelson Mandela?" by Pam Pollack and Meg Belviso. We will be learning about how as a child, Nelson Mandela dremt of changing South Africa, and how as a man he was able to change the world.

 

 

Maths 

Our first Maths focus for this term is addition and subtraction.  Initially we will be working on place value of 3 digit numbers and we will practice developing our skills in fluency, reasoning and problem solving. 

We will be regularly working on our times tables. By the end of Year 3, children should know their 3, 4 and 8 times table, as well as their 2, 5 and 10 multiplication and related division facts. Please encourage your child to practice recalling their facts at home, and regularly use their log in for Times Table Rockstars.

 

 

PE

Our P.E. day is a Monday and children should come to school in their kit. School hoodies and jogging bottoms can be purchased online with school uniform. Long hair should be tied back and earrings are not allowed to be worn during P.E. lessons.

We encourage pupils to explore these at home.  All pupils have individual log in details.

 

Reading 

It is important for children to read to adults as much as possible. Try to read with your child for 10 minutes each day. It is beneficial for the children to read a range of genres and to practice comprehension questions about a variety of texts. Children can change their books on a Monday and a Thursday.  Parents can also leave comments via the parents section on the website.   

All books retuned to school are quarintined before being reissued to pupils.

 

Communication

I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Please make an appointment through the school office, should you want to arrange a meeting.
