Welcome to Year 3!
Over the autumn term we have lots of fun activities planned within our topic of The Romans. Within the topic we will be looking into Roman artefacts that we still use and the food that they ate. We are also looking into the Roman civilisation and comparing it to the our life now.
Within English we shall be studying a variety of books, starting with the Secret Sky Garden and Leon and the Place Between. We will be writing a descriptive piece, a non-chronological report, a newspaper report and our own comic strips. Whilst completing these pieces of writing we will be focusing on our sentence comprehension and using different word classes to improve our writing.
Within the first term in Maths we shall focus on place value, the 4 operations (written addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will have a large hands on approach to settle the children back in and to cement their previous learning.
How can you help at home?
Reading about the Romans will help the children gain more confidence with the tricky words.
Practice weekly spellings: I will upload the weekly spellings on here and the children will also be given a paper copy. There are many different ways to learn spellings and I have uploaded these on the document below.
