Welcome to Year 3 - our class teachers are Miss Stark and Mrs Goudy
This term year 3’s topic is ‘Into the Sea’ and we will focus on the question ‘Do we need ships?’ The children will learn about various ships and their purposes during our visit to the local port of Felixstowe. Our voyage into the sea then takes us to the Titanic! Here we discover how the ship was built, the route it took, the difference in lifestyles and the timeline of events building up to its eventual sinking. We will come to our own conclusions about what was the cause of the Titanic's sinking.
Throughout the term in maths, we will be securing our calculation skills by solving problems related to measures (length, weight and capacity). We will also be learning about time and shapes.
This term in English Year 3 will be writing a narrative inspired by the story of Robinson Crusoe. We will also be writing a biography on Grace Darling a hero of the sea as well as journeying into another Power of Reading text and finishing the year with a non-chronological report on the famous Titanic and a reflective diary entry.
*Year 3 children will be able to change their library books on a Wednesday. They will change their reading books as they finish them and complete an AR quiz.
