Y3EWi - Our Learning This Term

22 October 2021 (by Emma Williamson (emma.williamson))


Hello everyone,

It is finally half term! It’s been a wonderful term, full of laughter and learning and the children have settled into Year 3 brilliantly. We have now completed our learning on:

  • RE – Class Saint, Homes and Judaism
  • Geography - The Mediterranean
  • Science - Animals and humans
  • Class Reader – The Minpins by Roald Dahl
  • Maths – Number Sense and Exploring Calculations and Place Value

Some of the things we have looked at in English and spelling this term are:

  • Fiction and non-fiction texts
  • Expanded noun phrases
  • Prepositional phrases
  • Front adverbials
  • Types of sentences (statements and questions)
  • Adverbs of frequency
  • The suffixes –ly, -ily, -ally, -tion and –sion
  • Apostrophes used for contractions
  • How to use sounds to help us spell words (using a speed sounds chart)

We also finished this week by learning about Sarah Forbes Bonetta for Black History month.

The children have been amazing and they truly deserve a week to relax. Next term I will upload the medium term plan so you know what we are covering in class.

Enjoy the break and I will see you on the 1st November.

Miss Williamson.
