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.

Year 3 Learning Overview - Summer 1 2019

What are we learning?

Our topic for this half of the term is ‘Predator!’

As scientists, we will be learning about food chains and how animals need energy and nutrients to survive.  We will be finding out about water transportation in plants and human skeletal systems. 

As geographers, we will use maps to locate countries and continents.

In English, we will studying the story ‘Tin Forest’ by Helen Ward, which is set in a forest made of metal. We will be writing formal letters to the characters, describing settings using conjunctions and a variety of sentence structures and creating posters to promote the preservation of the Amazon rainforest.  

In maths, we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and find perimeter of shapes. Then we will learn how to add and subtract money.

In computing, we will be learning about algorithms

In Philosophy for Children (P4C) we will focusing on endangered predators and why looking after the environment is important. 

In music, we will continue to learn the violin and singing.

Key information:

P.E. Kit:  Please make sure your child has navy blue or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt with the school logo, black plimsolls/trainers 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 Thursday and Friday. P.E kits will be sent home on Friday and should return to school on Monday.

Children are not allowed to do P.E. without the appropriate kit. Please could you check your child’s kit as children have been doing quite a bit of growing over the last term.

Violin Lessons:  Violin lessons take place on Mondays; children will continue to take their violins home with them to enable them to practise during the week.  We recommend that children practise every day for 10 minutes.  Violins will be sent home on a Monday and must come back into school on Friday so that they can be tuned ready for the lesson on Monday.

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 one half-termly homework project, based on our topic ‘Predator!’ Home learning projects will be due on Tuesday 22st May 2019. Here are some ideas:

• Visit the local library to find non-fiction books about predators. Look for

information using contents, glossaries and index pages. Write down any new facts

you have learnt and bring them in to share with the class.

• Learn how to spell the names of some of the weird and wonderful predators of

the world – the weirder the better!

• Research and record a predator from each of the subgroups: mammals, birds,

insects, arachnids, reptiles, fish and plants.

• Make a mini fact file or short digital presentation about your favourite predators

and bring it to school to share with the class.

• Make a non-fiction book about a predatory animal – maybe your pet cat?

• Make a predator glossary to explain all the specialist vocabulary from this topic.

• If you could be a predator for the day, what kind of predator would you be, and

why? Where would you live? What features would help you hunt, catch and kill

your prey? Record your ideas on paper and bring them in to share with the class.

• Use the web to research what different predators eat. Create food chains for a

variety of different predators using materials and tools of your choice.

• Devise a ‘What am I?’ quiz about predators and try it out on your friends and

family. How many questions does it take for them to get to the right answer?

• Write a short, imaginative story or poem from the point of view of either a

predator or its prey.

• Write a set of instructions (a program) for how to care for your ultimate predator!

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 interests them.
