Year 3b

Welcome to Y3b

Welcome to year 3b -  the beginning of our Key Stage 2 learning journey. We are all set to embark on the final half term of the year. 


Our day starts at 8.50am and ends at 3.30pm. In that time we are learning lots of exciting new things and preparing ourselves for Year 4.


In English, we are reading The Tear Thief by Carol Ann Duffy and Nicoletta Ceccoli. We are using this books as a stimulus for writing a sset of instructions and a job advert.


We are currently loving listening to Coming to England by Floella Benjamin in Love of Reading time.


In maths, we are focusing predominantly on division this half term with a focus on developing our reasoning and problem solving skills. We have been revising our 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables and are learning our 6 times tables.


In Science, we are learning all about animals, including humans and are busy investigating what animals need to eat to be healthy and will also be learning about the skeleton and muscle groups!


Our topic in Geography is Hong Kong, a city in Asia by the sea. We have located Hong Kong on a map and planned a route from London, looking at which countries, capital cities and landmarks we would fly over. We will be learning about what it is like to live in Hong Kong and studying transport, weather and human and physical geographical features.


In RE our question is 'What is Worship?' and our topic in PSHE is Relationships. 


In Art week this term, we have developed our printing skills by creating a variety of mono prints. We have investigated responses to stories and different techniques such as Plastecine relief printing. We have also made practical responses to the work of Edward Degas. 


We are enjoying developing our cricket skills in PE and can't wait to start our swimming lessons later in summer 1 term.


In music this term we are studying Johannes Brahms Hungarian Dance No. 5 in G minor using the BBC Ten Pieces. In this unit we will listen and reflect on a piece of orchestral music, create our own piece of music using instruments and voice, perform as an ensemble and learn musical language appropriate to the task. We really do love our music sessions!


Please remember you can keep in contact with us through dojo and keep an eye out for regular updates and celebrations.
