Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

We are really excited to start 2020 and the Autumn Term, we have a wonderful Topic planned!

Your staff in year 3 this year are: 

Mrs Robson/Miss Iqbal 3B 

Mrs Watson/Mrs Gharbi/Mrs Khan 3M

Our Topic this term is :

What A Performance

Our topic is all about the theaters and directing our learning towards the famous and historical Bradford Alhambra and St Georges Hall theaters right here in Bradford.  As a year group we will learn everything from setting scenes back stage to how the lights help the audience see. So come along for the journey, bring your thinking hats, sit back and hold tight for year 3's learning journey WHAT A PERFORMANCE!!

History 
In History this half term we will be studying everything theatrical; the history of our own Bradford Theaters and why they have been so popular with audiences and fans ever since the creation of the buildings in 1914 and way back to 1853.
Geography 
We are taking a look into the differences between Bradford in the 1900's and Bradford in 2020. How roads, transport, housing and building work has helped Bradford to become the city it is today. We will look how areas surrounding our theaters have been developed in order to move with the times and the increasing numbers of people living in the city. 
Science 
This terms Science is focused on light and shadow. We will be learning all about natural and man made light sources. How lights are used inside theaters and how shadows are formed. We will be conducting our very own science investigations surrounding shadows and shadow sizes.
 
PE. 
The children have PE at different times this half term. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit on the following days: 
3M - _____________

Thank you' to all of those parents who support their children in learning their Byron Blue Times Tables  please continue to do this as we need to ensure all our children are consistently accurate and we are aiming for most of our Year 3 children to have achieved their silver badge by the end of the year.

Homework
 
Each year 3 child has been given a homework grid that is linked to the topic that they are learning this term (What A Performance). The grid has reading, writing and researching tasks. Each task on the grid is worth a certain amount of house points depending on how difficult the task is or the amount of time it takes to complete the task. You can also complete more tasks to earn more class points. We hope you can support your children in completing these tasks at home as the house points are linked to the houses (Bronte, Titus, Lister or Hockney) that they are in. So the more tasks the children complete the more house points they can win for their team!   Click here for a copy of the homework grid.
Good Luck

Each child will have the opportunity to go swimming in this academic year. The swimming lessons will take place on a Wednesday morning. If any lessons are cancelled or rescheduled the staff members at Byron Primary School will inform you. For each swimming lesson your child will be expected to bring a swimming kit, towel, hair bobble (if required) and a healthy snack for afterwards.
