Welcome to Year 3

We are Cherry Class!

The adults in Cherry Class are Miss Cooksey, Mrs Asghar and Mrs Ali (Fri am and Thurs PM).

What are we learning about in Spring 2?

In Maths, we are continuing with our multiplication and division unit. We will be exploring sharing and grouping, multiples, using arrays and the 3,4 and 8 times tables.

In English, we are reading 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies. We will be getting to know the text by sequencing key events and looking at characters' emotions at different points of the story. We will learn about features of a diary entry before planning, drafting, editing and publishing our own.

In Science, we will be answering the question, 'How did that seed become a flower?' We will learn about what plants need to grow well, the different parts of a plant, and how seeds are dispersed. We will also work scientifically and use the skills we have learned to complete growing investigations.

In History, we will be learning all about The Romans. We will learn about how Rome became such a huge empire, how and why the Romans invaded Britain, and about what life was like during the Roman period. We will also study key figures and events.

In RE, we will be answering the question, "Why do Christians call the day Jesus died 'Good Friday'?" for our Salvation unit. We will investigate the events of Holy Week and discuss the death and rebirth of Jesus Christ.

In PSHE, we will be thinking about why we should eat well and look after our teeth. We will learn about a healthy diet, how to maintain good oral hygiene, how to make healthy choices, and where to go for advice.

In our Art days, we will be creating an observational painting in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. We will develop our colour mixing and matching skills before finishing our final piece.

In Music, we will continue to develop our vocal skills in whole class ensemble teaching with Mr Gouldin on a Thursday morning.
