Danube - Year Three
This half term we will be finishing off our learning about India by tasting tea and other Indian food and making some delicious foods to try. We will continue to use ‘The Jungle Book’ for our reading, writing and grammar lessons. We will be writing descriptive pieces, recounts and persuasive texts and instructions.
In Maths we will continue to work on calculation with all 4 operations. We are learning about equivalent fractions, decimals and also adding and subtracting fractions. We will also be practicing 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables every day and key skills every week.
In science our question is ‘What’s beneath our feet?’ (rocks, soils and fossils). We will find out more about this when we go underground ourselves at Stump Cross Caverns!
In PE we continue swimming lessons, on Wednesdays. We will also have a lesson with a gymnastic coach on Fridays.
Our R.E topic is ‘How beliefs are expressed through art’. Our PSHE topic is S R E where we will be learning to recognise ‘the strength we have and the challenges we face.’ Our Mind Mate topic is ‘Being the same and being different’.
We will also be singing and learning the songs for the Leeds Trinity University concert that we will be attending later on the summer term.
· Please ensure your child reads every night and completes their reading diary.
