Welcome to Year 3 with Mrs Rickels and Mrs Perkin
This term we will be following the national curriculum for English and maths. We'll be spending some time concentrating on adventure stories, Greek myths and legends, persuasive writing, non-chronological reports and poetry. It would be useful to read books by Dick King Smith as he's our focus author.
History: Ancient Greece and the Stone Age
PE: Striking and Fielding
Science: Plants and Light
ICT: Fusing Art and Geometry (looking at the art work of Escher and using this as inspiration to create our own pieces using Inkscape)
We Are Reporters (creating sports commentary using apps on the iPads)
To support you child's learning, please can you read with them for 5-10 minutes per night. Reading books can be changed in registration every morning and should be in school every day, so that we can hear the children read as often as possible. Homework is given out each Friday and is due in by Weds the following week. Spelling tests are Thursdays and times tables tests are Fridays. Please ensure all items of clothing, including shoes are clearly named. PE kits (indoor and outdoor) should be in school every day.
Many Thanks for your support.
