Welcome back everyone; we hope you have had a lovely break over Easter and our ready for our final term in Year 3!
Our topic over this half term is the Anglo-Saxons, this is a very exciting topic where the children will be finding out where the Anglo-Saxons came from, what settlements they lived in and what it was like to be a real Anglo-Saxon warrior – this includes making their own shield! Throughout the half term we will be linking our topic to both Literacy and Maths.
In Literacy, we will begin by writing our own adventure story based on the Anglo-Saxons, we will also be taking part in some debating, as well as writing a Biography on an author the children have loved reading about – Roald Dahl.
In maths we will be fractions, angles, space and data. We will then be applying all of our new found skills in different reasoning and problem solving situations.
We have all loved seeing how much enjoyment the children have got from the reading challenge and we hope this is continued throughout the rest of the term. Reading books will be changed as usual on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Homework will also be set on a Wednesday and we expect this to be completed and returned on Monday mornings.
There are lots of exciting things planned over the next half term so we hope the children all enjoy this.
Miss Neary and Mrs Nixon
