3C Class Page
In the spring term, we focus on the geography rainforest. We look at where the world’s largest rainforest is, the climate, the people who live there and the wildlife. In science we investigate plants, and look at how seed dispersal plays apart in their reproduction. Whilst in mathematics we focus on multiplication and division, money, statistics, length and perimeter and fractions.
It is important to read regularly at home. In Year 3 we like the children to read regularly at home and get their reading records signed. The children can then complete the Accelerated Reader quiz on their book. In lessons, we do whole class reading, where we practise reading with expression and finding answers from the text. We also practise reading between the lines and discuss the author’s choice of language.
As Year 3 we believe that it is important to know what is going on around the world. Therefore we watch newsround each day and discuss the main stories going on around the world. Click on the link below to watch the latest newsround.
Each week children receive a piece of maths and English homework based on the learning that has taken place this week. The homework is set on a Friday and is expected to be handed in on Wednesday morning. Any problems regarding homework please contact a member of staff (3C).
Trouble Bubble Garden project
Children were set the task of transforming our very overgrown and unloved allotment into a new and vibrant wildlife garden. The children and staff have already worked tremendously hard to clear the area but now need some help! In order to create our wildlife haven we are looking for:-
- A couple of house bricks (the sort with holes in)
- broken ceramics (such as broken plant pots/roofing tiles)
- pine cones
- small pieces of piping (such as drain pipe)
- A dustbin lid (to make a bird bath)
- Bird feeders and seed
