Mrs Wilde

HLTA

Welcome to 3P

3P is taught by Mrs Paterfield and Mrs Wilde, our HLTA, takes the class on Tuesdays

Please use our class page to find out about what we are learning and doing during the year.  More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Plan' which can be found in 'Files to download' lower down the class homepage.

Our theme for the Spring Term is 'Romans'.

                                                                    

In History we will be learning all about the Romans, why and when they invaded Britian, how they lived and investigating Roman artifacts.  In Design Technology we will be designing and making a Roman chariot. As our grand finale we will be taking the children on our residential to York where they will learn how to be a real Roman. this theme is so exciting and I am sure the children will love the learning that will take place over this next term.

In Science this term we will be learning about light, why we need light to see and how it reflects differently off different surfaces. Computing will teach the children all they need to know about coding and in music we will be learning how to make rythms and compose pieces of music.

 

English

For the build up to book week and during this special week the children will be focussing on the book 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.  Mrs Pasterfield has puchased a beautiful picture book edition of this book for us to read as a class and we will be carrying out some exciting magic with special potions.  We will also be inventing our own potions just like Harry Potter.

After book week we will then begin to look at the book 'The Day The Crayons Quit'.

Through this book the children will learn-

  • To  use emotive language
  • To  write a persuasive advert
  • To understand the features of a persuasive letter
  • To  write a letter to persuade                                                           

  Our English lessons are going to be very exciting this half term.                                               

                                                  

In year 3, we will have a strong focus on handwriting and spelling.  A list of year 3 words that the children need to learn to spell can be found at the bottom of the page in 'Files to download'.                     

                                                    

                                             

Mathematics

In maths the children will develop their ability and knowledge in the following concepts.  Through a mastery style of teaching the children will develop their fluency in these areas as well as an ability to reason and problem solve using this knowledge.

The children will learn:  

  • To learn to count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10.
  • Compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators.
  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole for example 5/7 + 1/7 = 6/7
  • To learn to count totals of money.
  • To learn to convert pence to pounds and pence and visa vera.
  • To learn to add totals of money.
  • To learn to calculate change.
  • To learn how to measure in mm, cm and m.

Times tables:

As children are required to know their multiplication tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, a key area of focus is to develop our multiplication tables knowledge and become times table superstars! Strong multiplication table knowledge is crucial in many areas of maths and children should be able to recall these quickly and confidently. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times table activities below:
