Welcome to y3mh
Welcome to Spring term in Y3MH! I hope you’ve all had a brilliant Christmas and New Year.
It’s great to be back seeing all of the children and learning about what they have been up to over the holidays.
Hi, I'm Mrs Hicks and I have been teaching at Aston Hall since 2016.
Spring and Summer Learning Topics and Information:
In a morning, we start with our 20-minute text then move on to Literacy and Maths. In the afternoon, the children have 2 other sessions. These are History/Geography, Science, French, D&T/Art, PSHE, PE or R.E. Y3HS also take part in a Music session every Monday morning.
Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in by the following Wednesday. Spellings will be given out on a Friday and be tested on the following Friday. There will be either a Maths, English or wider curriculum task/activity as well as regular reading, TT Rockstars practice and weekly spellings to learn. The task will be outlined on Dojo as well as in Homework books (where relevant).
Spelling, punctuation and grammar skills will also continue to be embedded.
Science will be taught on Tuesday afternoons and the topic we will all cover this term is Plants and Earth and Space. In the topic Plants, the children will learn about the parts of a plant, how plants live and grow and what are soils made from. In the topic Earth and Space the children will learn about planets in our Solar System, how light travels, magnetic poles and the process of fossil formation.
Our art work will be linked to our geography topic, where we will create our own version of Rousseau’s Tiger In A Tropical Storm painting.
Religion, Ethics & Philosophy
Children will continue to learn about values, diversity and beliefs. We will explore what belonging means to different religions and what challenges different religions face.
Our Spring term topics for PSHE are Dreams and Goals and Healthy Me. The children will explore these topics through communication and activities in class.
Our first summer term topic is the Amazon Rainforest. Our geography learning will be based on the layers of the rainforest, how plants and trees can be used for medicines, rainforest tribes, and deforestation.
PE days in Y3 are now Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Can you please ensure that your child has their earrings removed (if this applies!) and long hair is tied back. We ask that children keep their PE kit in school throughout the week in case PE days change, and that kits include shorts, trousers, trainers, t-shirt and jacket/hoody.
