Year 3

Week Beginning 27th of June, 2022

The Sports day was awesome and the children as well as we the adults enjoyed every bit of the day. Also, we were blessed with a favourable weather. Well done Matthew for winning the cup!

Our project this term is ‘Nature’.

Learning

This week, we will be having our termly assessment in Reading, Maths and GPS ( grammar, spellings and punctuation).

In Maths, we will continue our unit on Geometry where we will be learning about horizontal and vertical lines, vertical and perpendicular lines and drawing accurately.

In RE this term, we are exploring the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This week, we will be looking at how Christians today try to follow the example of Jesus as ‘Fishers of men’ in our present day and age.

In Science, we will be collecting evidence of the local bedrock and other rocks in the local area by doing a rock survey. We will also be using our knowledge of the properties of rocks to determine why particular rocks are selected for different tasks.

Request, please – For our science lesson on 4/7/22, if you have any small shells at home that you could send in for the day for us to make fossils, we would be very grateful, thank you!

In Geography, we will be looking at ‘Earthquakes’, We will start by looking at what exactly is an earthquake, why it occurs, where it occurs and how strong it is.

As always, please encourage your children to practise their spellings weekly. Our spelling test will continue to take place on a Wednesday so you should be practising week 27 spellings. The spellings for this week are;

perhaps

arrive

actually

impossible

scene

relaxation

Please note the spellings list has been updated to add on a few more weeks to take us up to the end of the year. They are spellings that the children have previously encountered so provide a little refresh.
