Squirrels Class Y3
Welcome back to term 5. We hope you had a lovely break and enjoyed the Easter celebrations.
This term our writing will be based on book The Twits By Roald Dahl. We will write a range of descriptions, before moving on to learn all about playscripts and then Haiku poetry.
Our focus in maths will be fractions. As ever, times tables will have an important role to play in ensuring your child feels confident in number. Please continue help support your child at home by focusing on fluency in recounting times tables.
In science we will be examining the life cycles of plants, and identifying their requirements in order to function, grow and reproduce. We will explore how different environments can affect plant growth and investigate how water is transported from the soil and how plants use sunlight to produce food.
We will be studying our local area in Geography, carrying out fieldwork to observe, measure, record and present the human and physical features using sketch maps, plans, graphs and digital technologies.
In Design and Technology we will be making a small cushion with a plant design.
We will be making the most of the better weather by playing netball and cricket in our PE lessons, on Mondays and Fridays this term. Please ensure your child has a named kit in school.
Our RE learning is Kingdom of God and we will be reflecting on the question, When Jesus left, what was the impact of the Pentecost?
As you can see, another busy fun packed term lies ahead. If you have any questions or queries, please send them via your child's contact book or the school office.
With very best wishes, Squirrels class team.
