Welcome to year 3!

Hello! We hope you all had a great half term and are ready to learn about our new topics.

During Summer 2 the children will investigate Ancient Greece. The children will research both Ancient and Modern Greece.  We will be locating the country on the globe and discussing the range of islands.  We will also be looking back into Ancient Greece and how it has affected our world today.  We will look at Greek artefacts and discuss what they can tell us about how they lived in the past.

What you can do at home:

Research Ancient Greece using the Internet, books or travel brochures. Talk about how artefacts tell us about the past.

This half term we are basing all our work around the narrative of Perseus and Medusa.  The children will be describing settings, heroes and monsters from famous Greek Myths.  This will culminate in them writing their own version of a Greek Myth where they will create all the elements. Our unit of work on play scripts will be used to retell the Greek myths and Legends.

In Maths this term we will continue to look at time in which children will learn how to read the time to the nearest minute on an analogue clock. We will then progress to shape, we will create shapes in different orientations and investigate their properties using vocabulary such as vertices, edges, angle etc. As always, we ask that children continue to learn their times tables as home.

Some important information for Year 3 parents/carers:

  • PE will take place on Monday
  • Reading books should be brought into school on Thursday

Year 3 teachers would like to encourage children to bring in water bottles and a piece of fruit for snack, if they wish.
