Mountains and The Shang Dynasty

This Summer Term, our Geography topic will be Mountains. We will be using an atlas to locate the Mountains of the UK before  comparing one of the mountains with a river in Europe.

Then, our History topic will be the Shang Dynasty where the children will investigate what their lives were like and what trade was like at this time. Also, the children will bake their own bread and create lots of artwork, which will all be part of their history, Art and Design and technology lessons throughout this term.​

Our Class Book will be Cloud Tea Monkeys

​Writing​​

In Year 3, we cover a range of genres, which include narratives, poetry, recounts, diaries, explanations and instructions over the course of the school year. This will be based on the topic for the term or any significant events which may have taken place in that term or week. The children will learn a new skill and will then plan their writing before applying the skills which have been taught into their writing. Their final draft will be placed on display and in their Topic books.

Our Class Read will be Wind in the Willows

​​​​Reading

We encourage the children to read at home everyday. Also, we ask that you sign and bring in your reading book and diary on Monday, Wednesday and Friday so the books can be changed. 

On a Friday, we will always have a reciprocal reading session in the morning where we will work in small groups to read a range of books and texts. Over the year we will learn and practice how to make predictions, ask questions, make clarifications and summarise each text. Everyday, we will ensure that the children will have time to enjoy some independent reading so the children will not only develop their understanding of comprehension and language but their love for reading. We will also have our class read which can be used in our Reciprocal Reading sessions.

Also, now that we are in Year 3 we should know our 2,5 and 10 times tables, which we will continue to practice throughout the year. By the end of Year 3 we need to know the 3, 4 and 8 times tables and I will send resources home for support.
