Our narrative work for the first half term will be based on 'The Jungle Book' which is set in India. We will be writing a description of the jungle, a description of a jungle animal, and also an adventure story starring one of the original Jungle book characters!
Our non-narrative work (non-fiction) writing will be an information text about India (displayed on a beautiful water colour map of India!).
We will be starting with our work on 2D and 3D shape.
We will then be looking at telling the time - THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE WOULD REALLY LOVE TO HAVE YOUR SUPPORT WITH!
What does success taste like?
Throughout our REAL project this term, we are focussing on doing the very best that we can - particularly if we have to have multiple goes to get there!
We are going to be thinking about whether real success happens by accident and whether it happens quickly or slowly.
Our Real project has a geographical focus. We will be looking at India, Italy and the UK. We will find them on a map and learn more about the culture and country and also the FOOD! I wonder whether our around the world celebration at the end of term will be a success? How will we know if it has been a success? Keep tuned into twitter to find out!
PE and Games
Year 3 do gymnastics with ‘Twist and Flip’ every Thursday this half term. We have Miss Sanderson for Games on a Wednesday afternoon. It is essential that the children have their kits in school on these days. No jewellery can be worn and so if your child has problems removing their earrings, we ask that they do not wear them on days when they have PE / Games.
Reading is a key life skill and we aim to develop a lifelong love of reading through the different activities we do in school, as well as what is done at home. We expect all the children to read and record it in their diaries three times a week (they may choose to do more!). They should read a mixture of things including the school reading scheme books, library books, home books, comics, magazines and e-books to name but a few! Every child that does this will become a reading star and will contribute to our class total for the whole school competition!.
