Beech Class (Year 3)

Welcome to Beech Class

Beech class is a class of 37 year 3 children. Our teacher is Mrs Peatman, supported by  Mrs Lakin.  Mrs Hathaway teaches on a Tuesday afternoon.

Happy new Year and welcome back! We have a brilliant new topic this term and the children are already excited by it.

  Our topic for this term is ‘The Romans’.

We are going to be finding out lots about the Romans in our history lessons but also use our topic to support our  writing.

In maths we are exploring multiplication and division and working lots on our time tables. Click on the link below to watch some fun videos to help you learn them.

We are also going to be looking at measuring as part of our maths work.

In science our focus is forces. We are exploring friction and magnets.

We complete our first investigation on friction and used our Roman chariots we made in DT in the test.

In RE we have a great topic finding out all about how Jesus is the man that changes lives. We will look at some stories from the bible to see how people changed after they met Jesus. We also have some visitors coming into school to talk about how Jesus has changed their lives through sport.

The children loved this short story on Zacchaeus .

In ICT we are working on our typing skills. We will be using purple mash if you want to have a go at home.

In PE we are doing dance. The children will be choreographing and performing dances based around volcanoes.

In music we are using the ipads to create pieces of music using Garage Band.

As normal, we will be working on our spelling and tables with tests happening on a Friday.

The children can’t wait for their trip to Hadrian’s wall. This will be happening after the half term holidays.
