In our Literacy lessons this half term we will be learning all about dragons! We will be reading The Snow Dragon by Vivian French. This enchanting book tells a story about a world divided into two - the north and the south. The southern half is ruled by evil Fire Dragons and the north is controlled by peace-loving Snow Dragons. In between the two halves live the Twolegs people. A special book known simply as 'Book' contains a set of instructions on how the world works. The Fire Dragons get hold of Book and cause 'The Happening', which destroys the land and forces the Twolegs to live underground to protect themselves from the Fire Dragons. However, a little Twoleg boy called Tuft joins forces with a Snow Dragon to save the world from the Fire Dragons. 

As part of our Maths lessons we will be learning all about fractions. We will begin by looking at the difference between unit fractions (where the numerator is always one, e.g.1/8) and non-unit fractions (where the numerator is greater than one e.g.2/8) and how these can be shown in different ways. After this we will move on to look at counting in tenths, adding and subtracting fractions and finding equivalent fractions. To help us in our lessons we will be using lots of practical resources such as multilink cubes and lego.

Our topic for this half term is Race to the Parthenon. As part of this exciting topic we will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks. We will be researching the history of this ancient civilization and reading Greek myths and legends in our topic lessons.

For any more information about what we are learning please visit the Y3 Creative Curriculum area which can be found by clicking on the Learning Zone tab.





PE kits are needed (shorts, t-shirts, pumps and trainers, jogging bottoms and sweatshirt with clear labels and in a named bag) every Monday and Friday. 

All children have homework books with a maths and literacy task and LCWC spellings. Children will be given these tasks each Friday and they are to be returned by the following Wednesday. 

Keep up the super effort with Reading! Remember to record at least 3 reads a week in Reading Records and bring them into school each day.
