Hello and welcome to Long Mynd Class
The class teacher is Miss Williams and the teaching assistants are Mrs Cossie and Mr Sherratt.
Welcome back Long Mynd Class to a new school year in Year 3! I hope you are all excited for
the year ahead! This term, our topic is ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ in which we will be going on a journey through time to explore changes in land use and industry in our locality and in wider Britain. We’ll also be exploring lots of arts and crafts and working together to create amazing mechanisms! In Science we will be thinking about light, electricity and forces.
Our English this term will cover a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres. This will include writing characters descriptions, play scripts, information texts and diaries. We will have lots of fun using our imagination and being creatively dramatic.
In maths, we will continue to develop our knowledge of the number system. This term we will be focusing on Place value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. The children will learn to recognise the place value of each digit in a three digit number which will support them with adding and subtracting. Children will be learning their 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables and will solve number and practical problems involving these ideas.
This term we will be exploring the main key features and landmarks of our country. We will learn about the transport links within our country and how our land is used.
On Mondays, children will be participating in Football and Orienteering in their session with Mr Smith from Embrace. On a Thursday, children will be developing their techniques, control, strength and balance through gymnastics and dance.
Please support your child by listening to them read each night and practising spellings that are sent home.
Children also have their number facts books and we would be grateful if you could help them learn their number facts.
Big talk – at least twice half-termly. Please encourage your children to talk about the topic of our big write to help them with their ideas for writing.
