Welcome to Wagtails Class

Welcome to Year 3

Wagtails

  

 

We hope you had a lovely summer and enjoyed the holiday.

Mr McQueen, Ms Rojas and Mrs Salako would like to welcome you to Year 3 and to Wagtails. 

We are going to begin our learning journey by travelling back in time to the Stone Age and learning about life during prehistoric times. We have lots of interesting and exciting activities planned. 

YEAR 3 SPELLINGS

During this first term we will be establishing the childrens knowledge of spellings from the prior years, ensuring those spellings are well understood, and then moving on to the next level.  The words that are being learned may therefore be different for each child.

ENGLISH  

This term we will be using the Jane Considine writing plans to help us with our learning in our English lessons. 


We will be focusing on texts that are linked to our main topic 'Stone Age to Iron Age'

 

TOPIC

Our topic this term is 'Stone Age to Iron Age'.

We will travel back to prehistoric times and explore how people might have lived during this period. Using a timeline will help us to sequence and place events.

We will become history detectives and investigate the types of settlements and homes people lived in and how they hunted, gathered and farmed. 

 

ART

In our art lessons we will be exploring prehistoric cave art and creating our own masterpieces. 

MATHS  

This term we will begin by exploring place value, addition and subtraction.  

We will also be using TT Rock Stars to help us learn our times tables.

We will start by practising recalling multiplication and division facts for the 10 and 2 times tables. 

 

SCIENCE

In our Science lessons we will be learning about the importance of good nutrition and healthy lifestyles.

We will also explore types of skeletons and find out how different muscles work. 

 

TECHNOLOGY

In our technology lessons we will plan, design and make our own Stone Age roundhouses out of natural materials. 

 

P.E. 

P.E. for Wagtails is on Wednesday and Thursday.

It is important you wear your P.E. kit to school on P.E. days.
