The Happy Hedgehogs
Hello! My name is Miss Harris and I teach class 3H The Happy Hedgehogs with Mrs Brown as our class TA. I am very excited to be teaching the children and I’m looking forward to seeing all the different ways in which they learn and develop their skills in Year 3.
In the Autumn Term, our topic is Invaders. We will be learning all about Romans and Vikings. We had a great time on our trip to Doncaster Museum to learn more about the Romans.
Our English work will be linked to our topic and will include poetry, explanation texts, instructions and some narrative writing. Alongside this, we will be developing our reading skills through a variety of texts and comprehensions in Cracking Comprehension, and making progress in our spelling through using Read Write Inc.
Our maths work this term will cover a variety of areas including place value, calculations, number bonds, times tables, telling the time and work on shape. We are having a big focus on times tables so any opportunity to practice the 3, 4 and 8 times table will be grabbed with both hands!
Our Science this term is Forces and Magnets. We will be exploring how they are seen and used in the world around us.
For our ICT this term we are looking at programming for making animations.
Our PE this term is football and target games. PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.
We are learning to perform a song called Let Your Spirit Fly
Art and DT
Our art and DT work will be linked to our topic and will include designing and making mosaics and also looking at runes and shields.
Work done at home is really important in supporting the children’s learning. Homework for Maths and English is set on a Thursday and due in on a Tuesday. There are new maths games online each Thursday and there is always Times Tables Rock Stars to log on to for practising. Reading a banded book from school is great for developing their reading skills and the children will all be benchmarked before half term to ensure that the book they bring home is at the right level of comprehension for them.
