Summer 1 

Welcome to Year 3's class page. On here you will find any information you need to know about what we are doing each term.

This term our topic is 'The Romans'.The class will learn and develop their knowledge of The Romans throughout their topic and literacy lessons. The children will discover how to persuade to invade which involves learning about the attempted invasion of Julius Caesar. The children will also learn about Roman Road, Hadrians Wall, Gods & Godesses and much more. We will look closely at the story of Boudicca's Rebelion, how it affected different people and write some of our own diary entries. 

 

English, we are focusing this term on our spelling within our work. When possible can you ask your children to put their spellings into sentences, this will help them to understand the vocab they are developing and how to construct this word into a sentence that can be later written within their work. We will also have a huge focus on editing and improving our work, the children may be given a sentence for their morning activity and with a green pen are to spot the mistakes within my writing - this can also be done at home to help with further development.

 

Maths: our focus this term is problem solving. This is when a maths problem is put into a sentence and the children are to scan and pick out the key information in order to correctly answer the problem it is asking. For example: Miss Brook draws a four sided shape 2 sides equal 12cm and 2 sides equal 5cm, what is the perimeter of this shape? or Miss Brook draws a four sided shape. The perimeter of this shape equals 20cm. Can you draw a shape with the perimeter of 20cm?

 

Please continue to encourage children to learn their timestables. We have been listening to timestable songs through youtube to help us remember. We encourage the children to learn their timestables by saying:
1 x 4 = ?
2 x 4 = ? etc.

Don't move on to develop another times table until your child is confident with both the multiplication and the division facts.
