Dear Parents/carers,

Hi Year 3,

What a crazy term we have just had! We are now moving into the Summer Term with lots of sunshine and fun ahead of us. Summer is the Year 3 teachers’ favourite term because it is when we learn all about South America! In Geography, we will be focusing on the countries that make up South America and together we will answer the question “Could we live without the Amazon?”. Summer Term will also see us exploring the issue of deforestation and the factors that contribute towards this worldwide devastation. In History, we will be looking a little bit closer to home and answering the question “Who were the Heymann’s?” and finding out all about the history of this family and their importance in Nottingham and West Bridgford.

We have got lots of Maths topics to cover this term and we will be focusing on fractions for the first 6 weeks of Summer. Luckily, we have been doing lots of work on multiplication and division in Spring Term, which will support our fractions work. We will also be learning how to tell the time and learning about angles, lines and shapes.

Our South America topic also will allow us to channel our creative sides as we improve our collaging and printing skills and create pieces of artwork linking to the animals of South America. Also, we will be creating sculptures out of clay and be learning all about Pneumatics!

We will be continuing our much-loved science week next term, with one week focused on plants and another week focused on Animals and Humans.

In P.E, we will be having a go at Tennis, Athletics and Rounders. Furthermore, we are very excited to be able to have a go at Orienteering this year, which is something we haven’t done before!

In ICT, we will be coding, learning how to use the internet safely and using videos. In R.E, our two topics are Muhammed, Mosques and Prayer and The Bible and other holy books.

We are really excited for a jam-packed term with lots of exciting, creative projects to be working on! We will be ending the term with a Carnival Day, where we will be learning some South American dances and having a go at weaving our own South American blanket patch.

As I'm sure you are aware we would have usually done a curriculum meeting where we would have shared with you information about the expectations, rules and routines for the year. As this is not possible to invite you all into school to do this at the moment, we have created a video which covers all the information that we normally would have shared during that meeting. Please see the video attached below. Many thanks for your continued support and if you have any questions please email the year3-teachers@heymann.notts.sch.uk 

 

 

 

 

General Routines

We will be having PE on Tuesday and Thursday, though this could change so make sure that you have your PE kit in school at all times so that you are ready!

We will be sending out spellings every week on a Thursday ready for a test on the following Wednesday. These words will also be on Spelling Shed so you can practice on there too. After our initial project, we will also be sending home maths work. This may sometimes be on MyMaths or on a sheet of paper which we will upload on here. 

At home, you should also be reading every day and practicing your Times Tables frequently. This year we will be looking at 3s, 4s and 8s but you should also be doing you 2s, 5s and 10s so that you become super quick. 

Parents if you do have any questions please email year3-teachers@heymann.notts.sch.uk and we will try our best to answer your questions.

Working together we can make things better
