Autumn Term Topic
Hello everyone, we hope you all had a fantastic summer and are all looking forward to an action packed autumn term in Year 3. "Is the UK the same all over?" is our key question in topic. We will be finding out about the different parts of the United Kingdom and how it is made up of many different types of rocks. Appropriately in science we will be looking at Rocks and then later in the term at Animals and Humans.
Writing: This half term our book is called 'Seal Surfer'. This is a wonderful book that allows the children to explore their imagination and make predictions about the text and what may happen to the different characters. They will also learn about life as an author and illustrator.
Reading: We will check your child's reading record and give them the opportunity to change their reading book every Friday.
Spellings: We will give new spellings out, and have our spelling quiz, each Friday.
Through this term the children will be focusing on place value along with looking further into the concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be looking at 2-D and 3-D shapes, particularly focussing on their properties.
Our school promotes life in all it's fullness through the acromyn TRAIN
T is for Theology – Christian teaching as a faith school is rooted in the Bible, the teachings, and the life of Jesus supported by the Heartsmart principles and our Christian values.
R is for relationships, those we have with each other in school and our families. The relationship we have with God through faith and our understanding of the trinity. (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit)
A is for aspirations and attitude, a desire for children and adults in school to experience life in all its fullness both academically and emotionally and socially, with an understanding of Gods purpose for us through his teaching in the bible. Attitudes that are positive so that children and adults can be successful in all that they hope to achieve.
I is for inspire! How do we, can we, should we, inspire each other every day to be the best that we can be in all our interactions and endeavours?
N is for next steps on our journey – whatever that may be for children and adults - that the experiences at Wharton CE have prepared them to take any next step with confidence and a secure foundation rooted in proverbs 22 v 6.
Mr Sear and Miss Paton.
