A great big HELLO and WELCOME BACK
to your new year!
I hope you all had a good rest and lots of fun
over the summer and are rested and ready for
some hard work, but fun too, in Year 3.
What do you need to bring?
you may still go outside at break or lunch
This first term our topic will be...
Past and Present!
In our history topic, we will learn about the people
who lived 5000 years ago in the Indus Valley.
We will look at how they lived and worked so many years ago.
In geography, we will learn about people who live in India nowadays
in a small village in the south of India called Chembakolli.
We will look at the land around the village, their houses, schools and work and see how they are
the same as and different from us.
Other Learning for the Autumn Term
In Science we will be learning about forces - especially MAGNETISM.
We will be carrying out some investigations to learn how magnets behave with other magnets and with other materials.
We will be learning about LIGHT including sources of light and how shadows are formed.
IN DT we will be designing and making kites and using them to inspire some poetry in English.
In Art we will be learning about colour mixing and how some artists have used colour to create their work.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. You will need to have a full PE kit which is black shorts, a white T-shirt and plimsoles that fit!!
On Thursday, Mr North will try to work outside. When it is chilly, you are allowed to wear black jogging bottoms and a black sweatshirt. You might also prefer to wear trainers outside.
Friday is swimming day (if you choose to do it). You will need a swimming costume or trunks, a towel and a swimming hat.
I set your homework every half-term. There will be 6 activities to complete over the half-term and you can hand it in at the end or after you finish each piece.
