Summer Term

We have many exciting activities planned for our last term as year 3's.  We will also work closely with Year 4 so that they are ready for their next academic year.

Our topic work this term will be very Science based.  We will be linking volcanoes with our previous Roman topic and then moving onto investigating Rocks and Fossils.  We will hopefully be visited by an expert from the University to develop our understanding of rocks and fossils further. As well as this we also study Forces and link this to our Literacy theme of Superheroes.

In Literacy this term we will be developing and extending our sentences using a variety of vocabulary, conjunctions and subordinate clauses.  During the Superhero theme we will be creating our own Superhero, thinking creatively about their character traits and powers.  We hope to write a newspaper report based on a heroic action of our own superhero and a comic strip.

During Numeracy we will continue with the Mastery approach.  In particular we will focus on time, fractions, statistics and units of measurement.  There will be many investigation opportunities using practical resources and problem solving.

This is the first opportunity for the Year 3 children to compete in Haltemprice Sports.  With this in mind we will be practising many areas of athletics, including relay, sprinting and throwing.  Sports Day activities will also be an important part of our PE lessons.  When the weather allows us to make use of the field we will be introducing the children to the skills, rules and game of Rounders.
