Welcome to Year 3. Our staff members are Miss Johnsen and Mrs Musgrave. In Year 3, we are working on becoming more resilient and independent learners, taking responsibility for enjoying our learning

In the Summer Term we will be learning about lots of exciting things!

In English we will be learning about Fairytales and getting chance to write our own, as well as developing our persuasive writing skills by creating travel texts. In Maths we will be consolidating our learning so far and starting to learn about fractions and statistics. We will be continuing learning about plants in Science (hopefully growing some of our own!) and discovering all about the human body. 

In topic, we are going to be extending our knowledge of the world around us! We will be looking at Water, Weather and Climate in Geography, particularly focussing on Antarctica and the Arctic and the issues of climate change. We will be learning all about Ancient Greece in History and linking this in with the 2020 (or now 2021!) Olympic Games. It is also important to learn all about other cultures, so we will be researching about Hindu beliefs and Pilgrimage in RE. In Computing, we will be working on presentation skills so will get opportunities to create our own presentations based on some of the things we have been learning in class. There will also be lots of opportunities to get creative with singing in music and creating 3D art!
