j Y3 - Barnton

Hello and welcome to the second half of the Summer Term! Mrs Grocott and Mrs Morris are really excited to start work on our new topics!

We will be continuing with our quality ENGLISH text, Fox by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks, this term. Fox is a beautifully written and stunningly illustrated book. It is an archeypal drama about friendship, loyalty, risk and betrayal.  Dog and Magpie are friends who live happily together until Fox comes into the bush and everything changes...



In MATHS we will continue to consolidate what we have learnt so far in year 3.  We will be looking again at time, fractions, measurement and so much more...



Our SCIENCE topic for the whole of the summer term is Animals, including humans. We will be looking at the importance of diet and nutrition and examining skeletons, bones and muscles.


In GEOGRAPHY our new topic is South America.  We will be learning which countries make up the continent of South America and finding out about what life is like for people living in South America. We will also be looking at the physical geography of South America, including the Andes and the Amazon Rainforest.

In PE we will be focusing on gymnastics and rounders.  Rounders will take place on a Tuesday and gymnastics will take place every Thursday. Please make sure your child has their indoor and outdoor kits in school every day in case either of these change.



In RE our focus will be Caring for Creation.   We will look at the Christian view of creation and discussing whose responsibility it is to care for creation.


In French we will be receiving tuition from Madame Berry this half term.  These lessons will take place on Thursdays.



Homework, spellings and reading.
Home work will continue to be set every Wednesday and is due back in on the following Monday.  Spellings will be sent home on a Monday and the test will take place on the following Friday.  We expect all children to read at least 4 times per week at home. They will also read in school with an adult at least once a week.
