Welcome back to school, we hope you have all had a great half term!
This half term we will continue looking at our topic about the Romans. We will be finding out all about the Roman Empire, how they lived and the influence of their invasion into Britain. We will learn about the Roman roots of Doncaster and other places in the UK.
This half term we will be learning about plants. Through experiments and investigations we will be identifying and describing the different parts of plants and the functions of each of these parts. We will explore what a plant needs to grow and their life cycle.
This half term all classes will be focusing on various areas of maths, including place value, shape, measure and statistics. We will continue to build on our number work and will be applying our times tables to other areas of maths. Please keep practising your times tables at home.
This half term we will be looking at diary writing from the perspective of a Roman soldier. We will learn about using first person in our writing and will use drama to imagine what life would have been like as a Roman in Britain.
We will send spellings home every two weeks for children to learn and apply in their work. Children should be encouraged to use these words in sentences.
PE will take place on Monday morning each week and this half term we will focus on dance and gymnastics. Kit required consists of a plain white or blue t shirt, navy blue or black shorts. PE sessions will take place indoors. Please ensure that all children have their kit in school each week.
We are all looking forward to this half term in Year 3!
Well done to Kingfisher class who achieved 97.6% attendance. They had the highest attendance in Key Stage 2 and were rewarded with a pizza party.
Year 3 have been learning about coal mining during their topic. We have enjoyed many great activities such as visiting the Coal Mining Museum, learning about what life was like in a mining village, the different jobs that people had in the mines and what it was like being a miner in the tunnels.
