Year Three

Summer Term 2018


We’re nearly at the end of the school year and we have certainly accomplished a lot in the past two terms! This term the Egyptians are taking over and we will jump right into the lives of these ancient people. We will learn about their social hierarchy, the pharaohs, mummies, life on the Nile, the pyramids and so much more.

In Literacy we will continue to develop our reading comprehension and writing skills. Units this term include letter writing, instructional writing, poetry and a final adventure narrative.

We will introduce new methods for the four main operations in Numeracy. We will also reinforce our understanding of data, shape, direction, money, time, fractions and measure. It will definitely be busy.

As for our afternoon subjects, we have a busy term. In R.E. the religion we will study is that of Islam. We will learn about the important roles of Allah, the Qur’an and Mosques to Muslims as well as their many beautiful traditions. In P.E. we are lucky enough to have a coach for athletics which will keep us very active. Light and Shadows will be our topic for the first half of the term of Science. We will explore light sources, how shadows are made and even create our own sundials. The second half will have us looking at teeth and how to keep ours healthy. In Music, we will build on our knowledge and continue to learn how to read musical notes and play songs on recorders. In French our focus will shift from numbers and emotions to dates including weekdays and months.

Miss Carson and Miss McCreesh are so pleased with everyone’s progress this year and cannot wait to see how much more we can achieve together!
