Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Term 1

Aloha Hawaii

The children picked a lovely range of topics for the year and the first one we are basing our learning around is Hawaii, with a focus on the recent film Moana.

Hawaii gives us wonderful inspiration for artwork, where we will be creating landscapes using water colours and also links in nicely with our science learning about plants. As well as plants, we will also be learning about the rivers and water surrounding Hawaii and linking in learning about the water cycle!

Within our writing, we will be focusing on creating complex sentences, whilst writing descriptively, about the Hawaiian people, the beautiful settings of Hawaii and the story of Moana.

Our maths, this term, will begin with recapping on place value and extending our knowledge to thousand numbers, then we will move onto looking at addition and subtraction. Much of our learning will be linked to real life problem solving.

We are lucky enough to have another Chinese teacher starting with us this term, so we will soon be improving our mandarin even more!

As usual for College Road, there are so many super things planned and coming up, like Roald Dahl day and National poetry day, so keep an eye on the diary!

Please feel free to come and chat to me if you have any questions.

Many thanks, in advance, for your support.

Mrs Dinham
