Sometimes we don't need to look far for our inspiration. Here is our very own Eva winning Gold as part of the Southwark BMX team at the London Youth Games last weekend. Even more amazing, she was only a week out of plaster, having broken a bone coming off her bike. https://t.co/DvtqAkEJn0

Year 3 Learning Overview - Autumn Term 2 2018

What are we learning?

Our topic for this half of the term is ‘Gods and Mortals’.

As geographers, we will be exploring Ancient Greece using maps to identify geographical features.  We will also learn how we can plot routes on maps and create a key. 

As designers, we will design a product based on a given criteria.  We will explore the design process through a series of lessons, which will conclude with us making our own sculpture.   

As historians, we will be asking questions about the past and using Greek artefacts to help us find out more about life in Ancient Greece.  We will then start to make connections and explore how some elements of life in Ancient Greece have influenced the western world. 

In addition:

In English, we will be learning about the legend of Icarus and Daedalus, the Trojan horse and Theseus and the Minotaur.  We will be writing descriptive sentences using adjectives, adverbs, fronted adverbials and thinking about using a wider range of punctuation. 

In Maths, we will be focusing on the bar model to help us with addition and subtraction word problems. We will also be learning about multiplication and division. 

In Computing, we will be using algorithms to create our own programmes. 

In Mandarin, we will be learning the names of countries and how to talk about where we are from. 

In Philosophy for Children (P4C), we will focusing on how we listen and respond to other’s viewpoints, focusing on fairness.

In Music, we will learning the violin.

P.E. Kit:  Please make sure your children have shorts, a white t-shirt with the school logo, plimsolls and socks in a named P.E. bag in school. Children in Goldcrest class will have P.E on Tuesday and Friday, and children in Nightingale class will have P.E on Wednesday and Friday. P.E kits will be sent home on Friday and should return to school on Monday.

Children will not be allowed to do P.E. without the appropriate kit.

Reading books and reading records: Please make sure your child’s books and reading records are in their book bags each day. Children should read daily and we ask that you record this in their reading record.

Overview of our home learning: Home learning will be handed out weekly on a Thursday and should be returned to school on a Tuesday.

There will also be a half-termly homework project, based on our topic, ‘Gods and Mortals’. Home learning projects will be due on Tuesday 18th December 2018.

The home learning project is a way for your child to show off the learning that they have been doing throughout the term, this is an opportunity for children to present their learning in a way that is appropriate to them.

Other Events:

It will be Anti-Bullying Week the week beginning 12/11/18. Children will be discussing what bullying is and what they can do if they or others are being bullied.

The week beginning 19/11/18 will be Road Safety Week.  We will be finding out about the risks of the road and what we can do to stay safe as the evenings get darker.

Our year 3 and 4 end of year concert will be on 18/12/18 at 9.30am and 20/12/18 at 2.00pm.

Our Parent celebration will be on the 21/12/18 at 1.30pm. This is another chance for the children to share their learning and projects with you.
