Welcome to Summer Term 2!

 

I hope you have had a wonderful, restful half-term. I am really looking forward to hearing what you’ve been doing.

As I write, the sun is out, the birds are chirping, and I cannot wait to share the new plan for learning with you. So, here it is!

 

Our Summer Term’s topic is ‘The Americas’.

Our ‘Big Question’ is: Should we care about what happens on the other side of the world?’

Our Summer Term’s key concepts are: Belonging, Identity, and Diversity.

 

This half-term's learning menu:

  • In English, we will be writing and discussing persuasively, creating: posters, leaflets, discussions, and debate speeches. 
  • In Maths, we are continuing with our 'Time' topic and will then move on to the ‘Geometry’ and 'Measurement' topics. If you can, please continue to practise telling the time at home using both analogue and digital clocks. 
  • In Science, we are investigating sound.
  • In DT, our focus is food technology. We'll be researching, designing and creating new bread products.
  • In PSHE, we will continue discussing our rights and responsibilities. 
  • In SRE, we will be discussing differences between male and female anatomy, and personal space.
  • In History, we will be learning about inventions that have changed the world including: the wheel, the telephone, the aeroplane, the 'Space Race'. Our significant individual will be Katherine Johnson.
  • In RE, we are investigating the miracles of Jesus and why they are important Bible stories for Christians to share.
  • In PE, we will be practising our striking and fielding skills. 
     

It is going to be a fun, interesting, and busy half term. I cannot wait to get started with you, my incredible, awe-inspiring Year 3s!  

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Morris
