Class 3D - Year 3
Year 3 Summer Term 2
This half terms focus topic in Year 3 is Rainforests. Year 3 will be exploring all about rainforests through their English, Geography and Computing lessons.
During Geography lessons the children will be investigating where rainforests are found in the world, exploring the different layers of the rainforest and the people who live there.
In English this half term, Year 3 will be reading The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rainforest. This poetic picture book highlights the importance of humans preserving the rainforests and the ecosystems within it for the sake of all who live on this planet. This book will engage the children through role-play and drama as well as allowing the children to develop their knowledge of persuasive writing. The children will create their own exciting stories that will continue the theme of preserving our rainforests.
In Computing, the children will be researching rainforests further, focusing on the habitats of the rainforest and creating fact files for animals of The Amazon. They will also be exploring deforestation and the impact it has on rainforests.
Year 3 will continue to learn the recorder for the rest of the half term, preparing for their parents concert on the 6th July.
In PSHE, Year 3 will be learning about ‘changing me’ and how the body changes during childhood and adolescence.
In DT this term we will be planning, making and evaluating items to take on a picnic. Children will follow and write instructions for the items they prepare and eat.
Book bags will be sent home nightly and we encourage the children to read at home as frequently as possible. Homework and spellings will be sent out each Friday, to be returned on a Monday. Spelling tests will take place each Friday. Children can also play on Times Tables Rockstars at home, to boost their times tables knowledge and fluency.
