Year 3 – D
Welcome to Year 3. We Are the ‘Determined D’s. I am Mrs Kennedy and I am the class teacher.
Where has the time gone? These last 6 weeks have flown by before our eyes! The children worked hard every day in order to improve their learning. They seem to have really enjoyed studying the life of William Shakespeare-especially the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet! Their interests have shown in the writing and artwork that they have produced. I am so very proud of their achievements and they should be too! The children have had lots of opportunities to share their ideas and their learning with their classmates. I will continue to foster this open dialogue as the school year progresses. I am looking forward to the second half of this term and anticipate great things from all of my pupils.
Year 3 D’s topic this half term is ‘Somewhere to settle’
We will be investigating human geography of the United Kingdom including settlements and land use.
Some learning experiences will include:
- Identifying human and physical geographical features within the local area.
- Developing debating skills and creating a newspaper article.
- Learning about fractions and decimals
- Learning about living things and their habitats. Identifying the characteristics of a living thing and learning to classify them according to different criteria.
