Year 3 Learning Narrative – Spring Term 2019

During the Spring Term Year 3 will be going back 1200 years to the time of the Vikings. We will find out where the Vikings came from and why they invaded Britain. To bring this area of history to life, we will visit Butser Ancient Farm, where children will get a hand on experience of what life would have been like during the time of the Anglo Saxons and Vikings.

In Maths, during the first half of the Spring term we will focus on multiplication and division written methods. We will also be learning about statistics and money. After half term we will be learning about length and perimeter and fractions.

During the first half term in Science, we will continue our learning about our amazing bodies and then revisit the Our Changing World topic. After half term, we will complete the topic entitled, ‘How does your Garden Grow?’.

In other areas of the curriculum children will design and make a Viking shield, learn a dance, continue to develop the ability to speak French, and sing songs about the Vikings.

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme across both Key Stages up to Year 3. This phonics scheme provides a systematic approach to literacy, both reading and writing, which is fun and engaging. This is supplemented with the use of phonetically decodable books from Oxford Reading Tree and the Phonic Bug schemes, along with a range of other texts. Further details on how you can support your child can be found on the Read Write Inc website, www.ruthmiskin.com.
In addition to the above programme, we also use the Big Write and Big Maths schemes and Little Big Maths in Foundation Stage.
