Homework Topic – Year 3: St Martin
I hope you had a good rest over the Easter break.
Our religion topic for this term is ‘Celebrating Easter and Pentecost’ and ‘Being a Christian’ through The Way the Truth and the Life. This links with the ‘I Belong’ book we are still using for Sacramental Preparation. Please make sure the book is in class when it is not needed for meetings.
We are continuing to use the Power of Reading in our literacy lessons. We will be reading ‘Fly Eagle Fly’ and reading, performing and writing our own poems. Reading is still very important both in school and at home. Thank you for listening to your child read regularly.
In Numeracy we will be continuing with place value, the four operations and problem solving. Please continue to help your children with their times tables and problem solving in their everyday environment.
Our topic in Science will be Animals and Humans. They will be learning about nutrition, skeletons and muscles. They will be carrying out investigations which will help develop their scientific skills.
In Humanities we will be studying The Ancient Egyptians. In Art we will be working with clay to create Egyptian masks and tiles. In PE the children will be concentrating on Team Games and in ICT we will be using Coding to make animation using Espresso software.
Please note that the children should have their PE kit school throughout the week. Please ensure that all items of clothing are properly labelled as this will help us to find it promptly if it goes missing.
