Year 3: Columbus
Welcome to the Columbus class page!
In year 3 we will be focussing on some texts within our writing and reading: Sleeping beauty, Monkey see – monkey do and The chronicles on Narnia. We will be thinking about story structures and making sure we include a beginning, main, a problem, a resolution and an ending. We are also focusing on our descriptive writing and what we need to include to keep the reader interested.
In maths, we are continuing to secure of knowledge of out 1,2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times table. We are using this knowledge when multiplying 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number.
Our curriculum is full of lots of opportunities to explore the world around us, for example in science we are exploring different rocks and how they were made. In Geography we are using globes and maps to explore what is around us locally and nationally and in DT we are designing and creating our own micro-bit program to help people stay safe when riding bikes on the road.
