Spring Term 2020
Year 3 have been busy at the start of 2020 with a range of art work to brighten up our winter walls. Our topic – More Than Pyramids – will give us lots of opportunities for cross curricular learning. We will compare the ancient civilizations of the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Sumerians, Indus Valley and the Shang Dynasty. We shall explore their ways of life including their belief systems, farming, inventions, writing, and death rituals.
You can see our Spring 2020 curriculum here: Year 3 – Spring Curriculum 2020
In Maths, we will focus on:
- Multiplication and division
- Measurement; with a focus on Money
It is important that your child knows their multiplication tables and the related division facts. They should already have a secure knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times-tables from year two. This year we are also learning the 3, 4 and 8 times-tables. We will apply our knowledge of these tables to a range of problems, including related multiplication facts and multiplying two-digit numbers. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with their times-tables.
Beckenham Place Park
Last week we went on two exciting trips to support our learning in Science and Geography. We took part in lots of fun hands on activities including pond dipping, hunting for invertebrates and identifying them using classification keys, learning about plants and seed dispersal, completing nature quizzes and creating our own tree report after measuring and investigating a chosen tree in the park. The weather was (mostly) dry, but even when it rained we still had a fantastic time. As you can see from our photos, everyone had a brilliant time exploring in the great outdoors and we came back to school full of new knowledge and skills to support our learning this term.
