We are really excited to start 2020 and the Spring Term, we have a wonderful Topic planned!
Your staff in year 3 this year are:
Miss Hellewell/Mrs Khan 3B
Mrs Wright/Mrs Garbi/Mrs Khan 3M
Mr Bennett/ Miss Morgan 3D
Our Topic this term is :
Our topic is all about the Terrible Tudors and the period in history that the Tudor Kings and Queens ruled Britain. We will be learning about the Marvelous Monarchs, the Tudor Trailblazers and Glorious Food that the Tudors ate. We will be visited by Queen Elizabeth I herself and also create a Tudor Banquet fit for a King (or Queen!).
In History this half term we will be studying everything Tudor; the Tudor monarchy and the glamorous and infamous father of the Royal Navy, King Henry VIII. We will set sail on a knowledge exploration by learning about the noble seamen Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake. Finally we will be filling our brains to the brim with the different types of foods that the Tudors feasted on.
We are taking a look into the different Continents and Oceans of the World; comparing the Tudor knowledge of the world to everything that we know today. We will be linking this subject closely with the famous explorers of the Tudor times and how they helped us understand and know about the world today. Atlases and globes will be used to to identify oceans, continents and help us to locate countries first discovered by these intrepid Tudor explorers.
This terms Science is focused on rocks and precious stones. We will be using magnifying glasses and digital microscopes to make effective observations and learn how to identify precious stones and understand how rocks are formed and created.
The children have PE at different times this half term. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit on the following days:
3M - Monday
3B - Tuesday

3D have Forest Schools this term on Thursdays - please ensure all children come with waterproof coats and appropriate outdoor shoes - a hat and gloves may be suitable if the weather gets cold.
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.
