This Term's Learning



Our summer term topic is

'Around the World in 80 Days'

This is a really fun and immersive topic in which children will learn lots about the United Kingdom and other countries from around the world! It's heavily science and geography based and a whole lot of fun!

(7.6.22) In English, we are beginning a three week block, looking at persuasive writing and in particular, advertisements. We will be looking at the features of these texts and the importance of using positive themes throughout their writing and writing for a particular audience. Children will be introduced to many new concepts during this block, including: how to play on words (e.g. an advert for eggs might use the word 'egg-stra' instead of 'extra'), slogans, riddles, rhetorical questions, writing to appeal to people's emotions and voicing an opinion in a persuasive way. 



(13.6.22) This week in maths we have been looking at mass. Children have been learning all about how to measure mass in grams and looking at scales that go up in different integers. They have also been solving problems involving mass. We finished the week by allowing children to use their new found skills in context - making cakes! Children loved this activity and we hope they enjoyed eating them!




Look at the exciting things we have been getting up to in year 3!!

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful advert collages! They look amazing on out classroom walls :)
