Term 5

Our time in Year 3 is flying by, are you ready to find out about our Summer Term...?



Home Learning Tasks - please try and have a go at some of these activities...

This Term's topics:

Science - growing things

This term, we will be finding out about parts of the plant.  We will go beyond root, stem, leaves and flowers as we dissect flowers and use microscopes to see the different parts up close to help us understand the role they play.  We will also grow our own seeds and explore what's in the soil that they grow in.


Topic - Iron Age

We step back in time, this time to the Iron Age. The children will look at pictures of artefact to deduce information about the past.  They will start their learning by explore hillforts and why and where they would have been built.

Information about artefacts


Literacy - biographies

We will start the term by writing some letters to a real audiences.  Then we will explore the Poem 'Where I'm from' by George Ella Lyon.  We will make deductions about new vocabulary based on the context and then write our own poems based on personal memories. 

Where I'm from

This will be our lead in to our biography focus - we will be writing about our future self.  What would you like to become when you're older?
