Year 3

Welcome to the Spring Term!

The theme in Year 3 this term is the Ancient Greeks.  We will be learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece for men, women and children and studying some key events and figures of the time. Children will be designing and making their own Ancient Greek inspired pot and creating their own mythical beast!  In English lessons we will be reading some famous Greek myths such as Theseus and the Minotaur, Hercules, The Wooden Horse of Troy and King Midas and the Golden Touch.  Children will be writing a newspaper report based on the demise of the Minotaur.

In maths we will be focusing on multiplying and dividing, money and statistics (tally and bar charts and pictograms).  Please encourage your child to practise their times tables for 10 minutes a day on TT Rockstars.   Your child is expected to read every day and record this in their reading diaries.  They have an opportunity every day to change their reading books and can borrow books from the school library.  We will check children’s reading diaries on Fridays.  

PE will continue to be on Tuesday afternoons. We are asking the children to come into school in their full PE kit, including trainers. As the days remain colder, please can the children make sure they have suitable outdoor clothing (trainers, jacket, jogging bottoms / trousers).

Water bottles

Please can all children make sure they have a water bottle with them each day; they are welcome to fill their bottle up throughout the day at school.

The Year Three team will be working hard to ensure the children have a happy, productive and successful term. If you have any questions, please email these to schooloffice@sacredheart.peterborough.sch.uk and these will be forwarded to us and we will get back to you.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
