Year 3 2018-19

 

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Summer 1 is all about the Ancient Greeks.  We will be exploring this period of History in topic lessons but also through our writing.  We will create holiday brochures for Ancient Greece, explore and then write our own Greek Myths as well as research the Olympics and it's legacy for the western world today.  We will also focus on Greek Gods and Goddesses within our reading and writing.  In addition to using these exciting stimuli for the content of our writing; improving our spelling, punctuation and grammar will be a focus.

 

As usual we will continue to develop our mathematical understanding.  Our topics for this half term will be fractions and time.   As usual questions are available for additional home practice.  Concepts in the questions available will have been covered in class.

 

For more information on what we will cover this half term, please see the medium term plan at the bottom of this page.

 

If you have any queries please contact me via the staff@deightongates.leeds.sch.uk email address.

 

Thank you

Mrs Gibson
