Welcome to Y3AG
We would like to start by saying we hope you had a fun, relaxing and safe half term! With trick or treating and fireworks, bonfires and Halloween, I’m sure it was eventful for all, and you are now feeling refreshed and ready for the next half term (and the run up to the big C word!)
This half term we will be diving into the world of willy Wonka, the human skeleton and chocolate in our topic ‘Scrumdidlyumptious’. The children will be learning about the human skeleton and the muscles that make it move in science, as well as how to keep ourselves healthy be eating the right types of foods. In geography we will be learning all about where chocolate and bananas comes from whilst in art and DT we will be designing characters in the style of Quentin Blake (the illustrator for Roald dahl) and creating our own chocolate bark. As part of our introduction to this topic we will also be having our very own picnic, and trying foods from the different parts of the food pyramid. Our class reading book this half term will be “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl, and we hope to be able to go to trinity at the end of the term to watch the film adaptation.
Monday afternoon is our library slot and children will have time to change their library books at this point. If they wish to change their book at any other time during the week, then school librarians are on hand to help your child with this during break and lunch times. We also ask that children read as often as they can at home – this does not need for extended periods, but five or ten minutes whenever possible, and sign their diary every time you do read with them. We will also be monitoring reading diaries to help keep track of how many books your child reads and how often they read each week.
Your child will participate in 2 PE lessons per week and we would really appreciate it If your child could bring their PE kit to school on Monday and take it home on Friday then it will save any confusion if for any reason the PE times change due to unforeseen circumstances.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Gough, and Miss Jackson
