Welcome to Year 3!
Meet the Staff:
Class Teacher: Ms Berta Cano Garcia
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Debbie Pierce
Our class text this term is Iron Man by Ted Hughes. It is a fantastic, imaginative story about peace and relationships.
We will explore its spectacular vocabulary and aim to include it in our writing.
We will be writing persuasive letters to negotiate with Mr Jennings our right to more playtime.
We will also write descriptive poetry using the vocabulary from Iron Man.
Finally we will write a newspaper article about the mayhem the monstrous Iron Man is causing!
This term we will be learning about multiplication, division and their relationships. We will be using inverse and the commutative law.
We will be learning about links between 4 and 8 times tables.
As we take part in weekly times tables battle across the school, we will need to practise using TT rockstars!
We will learn about forces that move the objects around us. We will learn how to recognise pushes, pulls and squeezes.
We will investigate how different surfaces affect the way an object is travelling. We will make predictions and perform a fair experiment, recording the results.
Mr Wicks will be teaching Computing to the class every Thursday afternoon. This term, the children will be using Lego to build a robot and then programming it to move. After completing their model, they will create a website page to record how it moves with photos and text.
