Chestnut Class - Year 3
Meet the Teacher presentation
Welcome to Chestnut Class
Welcome to Chestnut Class and Year 3! Mrs Peel teaches us on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Mrs Dykes teaches us on a Thursday. Mrs Fisher-Jones also works in our class every morning and on a Tuesday afternoon. We are looking forward to settling into the juniors.
This is what we will be learning about in the Spring term.
English – We will reading the folk tale 'The Lancashire Giant' and writing our own folk tales. We will also be writing reports about mythical creatures and learning how to discuss an issue related to our Geography learning about the Lake District.
Maths – We will be busy continuing our new maths scheme 'Red Rose maths' which will encourage the children to develop their problem solving skills. Times tables are also really important in the lower juniors. By the end of Year 3 we need to know our 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables within 6 seconds and we will continue working towards this during the Spring term.
Science – Our topic for this half term is 'forces and magnets' and we will be exploring how magnets work and what forces act on the things around us.
Geography and History - Our Geography topic this term is The Lake District.
Music – We will be continuing to apply our glockenspeil skills to a song.
PE – PE is on Mondays and Tuesdays.
RE - Mrs Houghton will be teaching us RE on a Tuesday afternoon.
PHSE - We will be learning about our relationships with each other this term.
Spanish - On Wednesdays, we enjoy learning Spanish with Mrs Culshaw.
Reading regularly with your child is so important and links to all areas of learning. Please listen to your child 5 times a week and record in the reading record book.
Times tables - Please continue practising on the Times Table Rockstars website at home. This will really help to improve their times tables knowledge.
Spellings - Spellings will be set on Fridays for a test the following Friday. This will link to the spelling pattern taught in the spelling lessons in class.
