Chestnut Class - Year 3
Welcome to Chestnut Class
Welcome to Chestnut Class and Year 3! Mrs Dickson teaches us from Monday to Thursday. Mrs Bowman teaches us on a Friday. Mrs Dewar works with us everyday. We are excited to move into Key Stage 2 and are looking forward to a new year of learning. Here’s what we will be learning this term…..
English – We will start the year by reading the classic children’s novel ‘A Bear Called Paddington’ As part of this we will be watching clips from the film and linking this to our writing. We will build up to writing our own Paddington adventure story. Later in the term, we will be doing information writing based on our Egypt topic and will also be doing work linked to the text ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’.
Maths – Now that we are in Year 3, we will be starting to work with numbers up to 1000. To start the year we will be doing a lot of place value work using practical equipment to build the children’s understanding before moving on to calculation work. It is really important that we practise times tables and Mrs Dickson will be setting lots of challenge to help us learn them.
Science – Our topic for this half term is ‘teeth and eating’. After half term we will be studying ‘forces and magnets.
History – We will be learning all about Ancient Egypt.
Geography – After half term we will be learning about the environment and doing mapwork linked to this.
Music – We are excited to learn to play the recorder!
Art – We will be creating artwork based on the topic of skulls and developing our sketching and painting skills.
PE – PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays for this half term. Don’t forget to wear your PE kit to school!
Spanish – We will start to learn Spanish with Mrs Culshaw.
Homework and spellings - This will continue to be set on Dojo. Please remember to keep up the daily reading and times tables with your child. It really does make such a difference.
Please keep an eye on Dojo for regular updates on what we have been up to. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via Dojo or the school office
