Year 3

Year 3 Spring Term

This term our teachers are Miss Jackson (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri), Mrs Rees and Mrs Turner (Wed). Our TA is Mrs Howard and our LSA is Mrs Trott.

This term we will be continuing with our WW2 topic, learning all about Chipperfield during the War.

In English we will be continuing to write evacuee letters, describing an experience of being in the Blitz and writing play scripts linked to our WW2 topic.

In Maths lessons we will be focusing on multiplication (3s, 4s, and 8s) and division, as well as fractions and statistics.

In Art we will be focussing on sketching figures when producing sketches of evacuees and soldiers. Linked with D+T we will be studying rationing during the war. We will follow and write instructions to cook some wartime recipes. When focussing on ‘dig for victory’ we will be creating our own persuasive posters!

In Computing we will be creating an animation and fixing bugs when using ‘Scratch’. We will also combine our Computing and Design and Technology skills when we design the setting and props for a WW2 animation. We will then create a stop motion animation film using the ipads. We will also be ‘movie makers’ when we film our gymnastic sequences.

In Science, we shall be studying the different parts of plants and then investigating what plants need to grow as we move into Spring! In Art, flowers and repeated patterns in textile designs will be our focus.

Later in the term, we will be studying maps and our local area. This information will help us to produce a non-chronological report (leaflet) about Chipperfield.
