Year 3 - Pearl

Term 5 - GREECE LIGHTNING!

Welcome to Term 5!

Welcome back, Pearl Class! We hope you’ve had a lovely Easter break and are now ready to begin an exciting new term. 

 

Our topic this term will be the Ancient Greeks (please see our topic web for further information). We will think about the legends and mythical monsters that we can thank them for, the ways in which the Ancient Greek civilisation still influences our society and why Greece is still such a special place to go to! We’ll design and create our own Greek pots in DT and develop our geographical skills by learning about the human and physical features of the country. What a shame we can’t go on a field trip!

 

We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for warmer weather and continue to have P.E. lessons outside, so please make sure the children have adequate clothing for all temperatures!

 

As always, please feel free to contact us either directly using the Home School Record Books or through the office. No doubt the next 5 weeks will go like "Greece lightning", so let's get started!

Home learning for those unable to attend:

Obviously, your child's health and well-being are our priorities and if your child is feeling unwell, please don't feel the need to work with them. If however, you'd like some activities which will support them when they come back to class, you'll find some ideas below:

 

English: you'll find a booklet saved in the resources below. These are separate to the units we're doing in class but follow the same structure.

 

Maths: Our current block of work is column addition and subtraction. Some activities will be saved in the resources but here are some links to online guides/lessons.   https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zy2mn39/articles/z3kmrwx

 

Our Topic, DT and Science are all linked this term by 'Magnets' - we're making a game using magnets which will come home for Christmas (but can provide you with some small but quite strong magnets if that's helpful). We're also investigating how magnets work, how they are used around the classroom and home, and which materials are magnetic and why. Some activities will be saved in the resources below.
