Welcome to Year 3!

Autumn 1 2019

We have an exciting term ahead of us as always at Godley.

The whole school theme for autumn is 'Memories' and we'll certainly be creating memories across our time in Year 3.

Our Key text this term is Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.  We will be exploring a retold version and some extracts of the original to inspire us to write our own historical narrative set in the Victorian Era.

Another key text we will be reading is 'The Tay Bridge Tragedy'  - a story based on a true event which occurred in this historical period.

In Maths we will be working with numbers up to 1000, making sure we can read, write, order and compare numbers.  We will then move on to addition and subtraction using a variety of methods to solve and use effectively and efficiently.

Our Historical Enquiry Question is 'How did the Victorians change my world?'  We will be placing key events in chronological order, learning facts about Queen Victoria and how she impacted on on society at that time. We will explore the workhouses but have a key focus on Victorian schools and childhood - comparing the then and now.

In Science we will be finding out about sources of light and investigating shadows.

Art links nicely to the theme as we will be studying the artist - William Turner.

Rugby and Yoga will be our focus in PE sessions.

In PSHE we will be looking at mindset and Building Better Learners - the attributes of an effective learner.

 

I'm sure it will be a great term!  Happy Learning!
