Welcome to Queens Year 3!
This half term we will be intrepid explorers discovering the Antarctic and following in the footsteps of Ernst Shackleton through the lens of 'Ice Trap!' by Meredith Hooper. We will be travelling to colder climates in the immersive classroom and looking at the wild life that somehow manages to survive in these brutal conditions. Later in the term, we will take a trip to visit Santa at the North Pole by looking at the book and film 'The Polar Express.' We also will be presenting some of the learning that has snowed us under on Thursday 19th December with a Christmassy theme so watch out for that.
When we're not filling our stockings with iced learning, we will be looking at Bill's New Frock in reading and learning about Magnets and forces in Science. In Religious Education we will be learning about Islam and looking at key artefacts, places of worship, key beliefs and also selected stories from the Qur'an.
Key weekly days:
Monday - bring your PE kits in. AR reading quiz and library day.
Tuesday - timetabled PE lesson.
Wednesday - timestable superhero test.
Thursday - Spelling test and homework due in.
Friday - New homework and spellings sent home. Take PE kit home.
Over the half term for homework, you can choose at least one activity a week, making sure that over the 8 weeks, all of the red English tasks are chosen.
Whilst we encourage daily reading at home, to get gold in homework, there must be three adult signatures and comments to show you have read to an adult. Reading records need to be in school each week.
Can't wait to see your wonderful homework that you produce!
