Year 3 Spring Term

Dear Year 3 Parents

Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely Christmas break. We have a busy term ahead and thought it would be useful to outline various things happening in Year 3.

Swimming
We really enjoyed seeing the children participate in their first swimming lesson and are looking forward to watching their progress in the weeks ahead. Please see attached a letter regarding googles for swimming. We will not be able to allow the children to wear goggles this Thursday unless this slip has been returned.
Please ensure your child has a snack with them for after swimming as many were hungry when they returned!
Boys swimming trunks must be tight fitting.
If you have any questions regarding swimming, please do come and speak with us.

Topic
This term our focus will be History. The children will be learning about the Romans. Our Roman day is on Wednesday 23rd January and the children are invited to come in a Roman costume.
Should you wish to enhance the children’s learning at the weekends or during the holidays, we recommend the following places for visits…
• Verulamium museum in St. Albans – St. Albans has lots of Roman history
• Roman Baths in Bath
• Chedworth Roman Villa in Gloucester (National Trust) – Cirencester has lots of Roman history

Maths
Our work with Maths Mastery continues and our next units of teaching will be Further Multiplication and Division, Length, Mass and Volume. Please keep up regular practise of times tables and simple addition and subtraction as these support all areas of maths. We hope to see many of you at our Maths Evening on the 5th February.

English
We are currently focusing on ‘Setting Descriptions’ and later on will be focusing on a variety of non-fiction types and diary entries which will link to our topic on The Romans.

Science
We have begun the term building on our learning from Year 2 where we are studying Plants. Next, we will be focusing on Teeth and Nutrition. Our STEM week after half-term should be an exciting week full of activities! The children will be conducting their own experiments in this week.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes,

Miss Barnes and Mr Farina
