Robins 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Robins' Class Page
Our class teacher is Miss Beattie and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Esling.
Welcome to Year Three Robins class!
This year Robins class will be following the theme 'Time Travellers'. We will be running this theme throughout all of our learning and linking it to our topics and our exciting Adrift Project.
During the Spring Term, Robins class will be exploring the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. We will be comparing the lives and achievements of these ages with what we already know about the Stone Age. We will continue to develop our inquiry skills by asking and answering historical questions. We will also be embarking on our Adrift Project during the Spring Term.
In the Spring Term we will be focusing on two lovely texts to inspire our writing work. First, we will be reading 'Big Blue Whale' by Nicola Davies. We will be working towards writing an informative article about whales persuading for the protection of the blue whale. Also in the Spring Term, we will be rewriting the story 'The Silence Seeker' by Ben Morley.
In Maths, we will be working on written methods of multiplication and division. We will also be looking at measure (money and length) and statistics (pictograms, bar charts and tables).
Our key focus of learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables will continue into the Spring Term.
During the Autumn Term, Robins class will be exploring the Stone Age. We will be learning all about the lives of the earliest humans, how they survived and what their achievements were. We will also be developing our inquiry skills by asking and answering historical questions using a variety of sources.
This term we will be focuing on three lovely texts to inspire our writing work. In Autumn we will be working on producing a letter based on the story 'Seal Surfer' by Michael Foreman. We will also be writing a fantasy story based on the book 'Winter's Child' by Angela McAllister.
In Autumn we will be working on number recognition, place value and addition and subtraction. In Autumn Two we will be working on inverse operations and mental strategies for multiplication and division.
A key focus for us this year is learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
