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.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. We have a few brilliant new topics this term and the children are already excited by it.

  Our topic for this term is ‘Things that grow’.

We are going to be finding out lots about things that grow including plants, animals and humans in our science lessons.

We will be using our English work to support our topic. We are starting with the story ‘The Tin Forest’, which we will also be linking into our art topics.

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

In science our first topic is ‘plants’. We will be finding out about different parts of plants, and also doing some experiments to find out the best environment for plants to go.

Our second topic will be animals and human. We will be finding out about healthy eating, skeletons, bones and muscles.

In RE we have a great topic finding out all about rules. We will look at rules that we know and rules in the Bible. We will also use this unit to explore rules in other religions and compare them to what we know.

In our history lessons we will be looking at the Anglo-Saxons. We will be looking at their life, aspect of religion and invasion.

Have a look at this website to find out some facts about the Anglo-Saxons.

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

In PE we are doing field games and will be looking at the rules and skills involved in rounders. We will also be getting ready for sports day and working on some athletic skills.

In music we are looking at composition using instruments to explore sounds to match animals.

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