Year Three – Term 4 News Letter
Wow it’s Term 4 already, how time flies, half way through the year! This term our topic is based around the history topic of ‘Vikings’. We are planning a dress up day and a visit to the Longboat at Pegwell Bay (details to follow).
English – we will be focusing on writing a Norse myth about Thor and reciting a Viking poem. Our reading objectives are to check that the text makes sense and to perform poems.
Maths – during term 4 we will be focusing on the written method for dividing (2 digit number by a 1 digit number) and using money. This will be combined with different reasoning and problem solving skills. Also we will be revising the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
Science - this term our Science is about different scientists and inventors. This will be explored through a variety of activities to engage the pupil’s interest and knowledge.
P.E. – is on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Both indoor and outdoor P.E. equipment is required and also a swimming kit on a Wednesday.
Can I please take this opportunity to thank parents and carers who have listened to the children read regularly, I understand we are all busy but taking that time to focus on reading has a very positive impact on the children’s progress. I will continue to set this as homework and listen to each child at school as before. If there is anything we can do to support you with this, please come and see me.
