Welcome to year 3
Values driven learning
This half term our class text is “Hercules and the Hydra”
This particular text is a Roman Myth that is one of the tasks Hercules had to complete . We will be using Talk For Writing to orally rehearse sentences and reflect upon the vocabulary used, any patterns we notice and the features used of a Myth. By the end of this unit we will be using our imaginations and knowledge to produce our own Myth.
Please find below an overview of year three’s curriculum for 2019/20:
At Litherland Moss we have a values driven approach to learning. Below is the ‘Rainbow Pathway’ for our current curriculum focus.
In science this half term we are learning all about Animals including Humans. Please find attached an overview of all of our science topics this year including some key facts and vocabulary that we will be learning. For this half term, look for the page entitled ‘Animals including Humans’.
PE with Joe Wicks is a great way to get the children active at home, I have also uploaded PE activity cards to Seesaw that can be used.
Reading is still essential as it will continue to improve their knowledge, reading, spelling and writing. Even reading with younger siblings is a great way to get the children used to reading out loud and changing their voice for speech. On Seesaw, I have uploaded David Walliams who has released clips of him reading his books. I have also uploaded the link for free eBooks from Oxford Owl.
Spellings and times tables can be practised every Friday.
Please practise times tables on TT Rockstars or Purple Mash.
Helping at home
Children are expected to read daily at home. Through asking your children questions about their reading, you will help to develop their comprehension skills.
If you are looking for some extra work to do at home take a look at these websites. There are a range of fun activities for you to do.
