Hello Lime Class,
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and you are refreshed and ready to start a new term!
I know many of you have been asking, this term we will be looking at 'Plant Power!'
In science we are going to be looking at everything plants! We will be learning about what plants need in order to grow, the different parts of a plant, how water is transported through a plant and the life cycle of plants. We might even be conducting our own scientific experiment so get your green fingers ready!
In Geography we will be continuing to look at plants and the environment thinking about the impact of plants on the environment and the impact that humans can have on the environment.
In Art we are going to be looking at sculpture. We will be looking at how plants and nature influence artists. We will be creating our own clay sculptures later on in the term.
The topic web and homework booklet will be sent home at some point during the first week back.
Looking forward to seeing you all and hearing all about your Christmas on Monday!
Due to change in the hall timetable out PE will be on different days.
We will now be having PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Please make sure that PE kits are sent in every Monday ready for the week.
Autumn Term 2
Hello Year 3!
I hope you had a lovely half term rest and that you are looking forward to this new term. I look forward to hearing what you got up to!
We will be starting our new topic all about the Stone Age.
Each child should now have a clear plastic wallet to keep their reading record and school reading book in. These need to be bought in to school everyday so that we can read with them in school and they need to be taken home everyday so that you can read at home. Any reading done at home please comment or initial in the reading records.
There is a big green box in the classroom that the children need to remember to put the wallets in when they come into school.
Coming this week is the new topic map and homework booklet.
See you next week,
Hello everyone and welcome to Year 3!
I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday and I hope that you are excited to start a new year in Lime Class. I would like to introduce myself as I am sure many of you know I am new to Rucstall Primary School. I am Miss Kay and I will be your class teacher in Lime Class.
Our topic for our first autumn term is Extreme Earth! We will be looking at a range of different extreme events that occur on our earth such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and hurricanes.
In Science we will be looking at rocks and fossils where we will be investigating and comparing different types of rocks and looking at their different properties.
Linking to our topic, in Geography we will be looking at how and why some of these extreme events occur and investigating whether there are any patterns in events across the globe.
PE will be on a Friday so make sure that you have your kit ready for then!
More information including the topic web and homework booklet will be coming shortly.
Look forward to meeting you all soon!
UPDATE: PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday.
Please make sure you have your PE in school for those days otherwise you will not be able to take part. If you have earrings you need to be able to take them out if they are old or if you have had them for less than 6 weeks please write a letter stating the date they were pierced and drop it into the office and send some tape in with your child to cover them.
