Year 3

Topic
This half term we will be finding out all about Leonardo da Vinci. We will look at his art work and create our own self-portraits. We will then move onto to looking at his inventions and how they have influenced modern life. Through design and technology we will be designing and making a handheld fan with motor.

Science

This half term we will continue our learning about animals including humans. We will look at the bones that make up the human skeleton and its different functions. We will also learn about nutrition and different food groups to understand what makes up a balanced diet.

Maths
This half term we will be consolidating number skills that we have learn throughout the year. Please keep practising your 3, 4 and 8 times tables at home. We will also be completing investigations in measure, shape and time to further develop our reasoning and problem solving skills.   

Writing

The focus of our writing will be linked to our Goldilocks concert where we will look at the features of persuasive writing. We will produce an advert to persuade others to attend our performance and will be writing reviews about the show. In addition, we will study poetry and will produce our own poem.

Spellings
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
PE continues to take place on Monday morning each week and this half term will focus on athletics. Kit required consists of a plain white or blue t shirt, navy blue or black shorts and trainers. PE sessions will take place outdoors. Please ensure that all children have their kit in school each week.

Well done to all our children for their hard work this year and we hope you all have a lovely summer holiday!
