Year 3 Summer Half Term 2

Topic: Sports

 

Mathematics:

This term we will be focusing on fractions. This half term we will move onto non unit fractions, adding and subtracting fractions and understanding equivalence. We will revise our written methods of calculation before moving onto understanding time.

All year we will be focusing on learning our times tables from the 2, 5 and 10 ‘s up to the 3, 4 and 8’s. We will learn these through song, rhyme and good old fashioned chanting! This term our focus will be on the 8’s and related division facts for all of the times tables we know.

 

Literacy:

This year we will be basing our Literacy around the class text, which will relate to or topic. The first text, which will also be used for Guided Reading, is The 100 Mile an Hour Dog. We will first focus on non-fiction writing by creating reports about our favourite sports. After this we will be focusing on our story writing ensuring that we include paragraphs, speech punctuated correctly and description.

We will be exploring the world as a whole and focusing on different countries, traditions and cultures.    

 

Science

This term we will be exploring light and dark. We will explore shadows, the sun and other light sources as well as how light can be affected by different things.

 

Physical Education
