Our Autumn term topic in Year 3 is a new and exciting topic called 'Eureka!'. Within this topic, we will be looking at various inventors and the inventions they created. We will also be looking at Electricity and Light.
We have lots of fun activities planned for this new topic and also look forward to hearing what the children would like to find out and the activities they would like to complete.
Throughout the term, children will be developing their Language skills through our topic work and linked to our class text, the wonderful 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', written by the original 'inventor of words' Roald Dahl. In addition, the children will also be continuing from last year with the 'Read Write Inc' phonics programme where applicable.
The children will also be continuing to follow the Inspire programme for Maths as in Year 2.
*Keep an eye on the website throughout the term for pictures and information about what we have been up to!*
Children in Year 3 will take part in rugby and hockey sessions during this half term.
Year 3 P.E. sessions will take place on Monday and Friday.
On your child’s P.E. day, we are asking that they come to school in their kit. Due to the colder weather, children are invited to wear tracksuits along with their Mountain Lane PE t-shirt as PE sessions will take place outside.
Whilst we understand that earrings need to be left in for a number of weeks following the initial piercing, we would appreciate your support in ensuring that, following this period of time, earrings are removed. Please provide your child with plasters/tape to cover earring during PE lessons if your child has had his/her ears pierced during the summer break and cannot remove them yet.
We are also hoping to visit the forest area during the term and we will communicate with you when such sessions are due to take place, to ensure that the pupils come to school prepared, in the appropriate attire.
