Class Teachers: Miss Fletcher

Hi all!

What a fantastic first half term we had! I can’t wait to begin our second half term as I have lots of exciting things planned for us.  I have added some information below about our second autumn term back at school so you can get an idea of what we will be up to. I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Miss Fletcher


Teaching Assistants: Mrs Davies

We are lucky enough to have Mrs Davies as our teaching assistant this year! She knows you all so well from working with you in Year 2 so she will be a familiar face around the classroom. She is very excited about working in Year 3 with us!


Autumn Term 2 - 2020

Our next topic in the autumn term is called ‘Extreme Earth!’ We will begin the year looking at the book The Pebble in my Pocket. We will follow the journey of a pebble and find out about the wonderful journey. In geography, we will learn the key facts about natural disasters across the world, including volcanoes and earthquakes. We will be developing our painting skills by creating splatter images of volcanic eruptions. 


After a couple of weeks, we will move onto our science unit, Rocks. We will explore the different types of rocks and develop different investigations. Alongside this, we will begin a new book which will be non-fiction about volcanoes. This is one of my favourite topics as we also get to write volcanic acrostic poems!


In maths, we will begin to focus on calculation. This will include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will then progress onto learning about time.
