This half term in English Year 3 are learning all about modern stories with female role models! Your child will learn to write biographies and different narratives. This ties in with our learning in history, when we will learn how these women changed Britain and the world. This half term in history we are learning all about Suffragettes! We will use drama and creative writing to show how Emmeline Pankhurst and Suffragettes established rights for women in the UK. In Geography, we will be looking at Europe! A lot of our learning will focus on countries in Europe and their capital cities. Your child will learn some useful geographical skills including labelling maps, drawing diagrams and identifying physical and human features. In RE, we will be learning about Judaism. We will learn about some of the main religious festivals and rituals. In science, we will be learning all about light, including how light can be reflected and creates shadows. In science, we will learn by doing experiments and gain practical scientific skills along the way. To help your child, talk to them about light as you notice it at sunrise, sunset, or in front of a mirror. And finally in maths we will begin this term by reviewing place value, looking at 1 and 2 digit numbers with the children to ensure they know the value of each digit. Once this is secured, we will move on to looking at place value of a 3 digit number.
