Year 3

Welcome to year 3!

Welcome to year 3! Our Teacher is Miss Jackson and our TAs are Mrs Howard, Mrs Weller, Mrs Patelli and Mrs Baker.

Spring Term 2021

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. We will then be designing a sweet new treat and writing letters to persuade Willy Wonka to make it!

In Maths lessons we will be focusing on mental and formal methods of 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 and creating silhouettes of London in the Blitz. 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 a World War 2 stop motion animation. We will be combining our Computing and Design and Technology skills when we design the setting and props. We will then film our stop motion animation film using the iPads.

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.
