Summer Term 2021 Year 3
Our topic for the summer term is “The Green Grass of Home.” This is a very engaging topic, with an emphasis on developing geography and science skills. We will make good use of our school grounds, (including the re-vamped Wildlife Area), to learn about light, plants and soils in science. We will study our local area in geography and hopefully go for a local walk to study land use, landmarks and also to create our own maps with keys. In maths we will finish our fractions topic and then learn more about shape, measures and statistics. As writers we will write an explanation text titled, “Why does the moon shine?” We will also design a persuasive leaflet for a fictional nature park and write our own story about a mythical creature. As artists we will make oil pastel pictures based on the work of Van Gogh. We will also go outside to draw and make a collage out of natural materials. In DT we will make shadow puppets to complement our science work on light. We will be developing our athletics and swimming skills in PE.  We will be covering topics on Christianity and Hinduism in RE. To develop our understanding of how plants grow we will create an animated PowerPoint in our computing lessons.
It is evident from our work in class that all the children are making great progress with their time tables. We are working towards the children being confident with the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 tables by the end of the year. Please practise on Times Tables Rockstars. We will be having a “Battle of the Bands” competition at some point this term. 

It is vital you read with your child as much as you can, remember- Children who read, succeed! We expect your child to read to an adult at least 4 times a week. 
It is important the children continue to complete their weekly home learning tasks as this will help re-enforce learning from the classroom. The task will be handed out on a Thursday/Friday and we ask that they are returned at the beginning of the next week. Please refer to our Learning Heroes to support their learning skills.
We are very excited about this term’s learning! Thank you for your continued support. 
The Year 3 Team.
