Welcome to Year 3T!
I am Mrs Thompson and I am extremely excited to be your class teacher. We are also very fortunate to have Mrs Thomas working with us as well. Welcome back from your summer break.
This Autumn Term 1 -
We are going to be Historians, learning about the Ancient Greeks! What will we find out?
We are going to be Scientists, answering the question - Are we what we eat?
We are learning more on place value, finding multiples of 50 and 100 and 100 more or less than any given number.
We are learning about instructions and how to set them out clearly in a text and also creating a documentary! Reading books will be changed every Tuesday.
PE lessons are every Wednesday morning. All jewellery should be removed. Earrings can be worn, along with plasters from home to cover them up please.
Every Thursday afternoon. Again all jewellery should be removed. Earrings are allowed to be worn as long as they are covered up with a waterproof plaster and a swimming cap.
Times table and spelling test
These tests take place every Friday.
Hope you find this information useful and here's to an enjoyable Autumn term 1 in Year 3T!
We attempted to build Stonehenge out of biscuits. Some were more successful than others!
To finish our Mediterranean topic, we prepared, chopped and cooked a tasty vegetarian paella!
