Earlsfield Primary School

Year 3

Year 3B are  taught by Miss Bruce and 3H by Ms Bienge. They are supported by Yvonne,  Ada and Teresa. They can be contacted via year3@earlsfield.wandsworth.sch.uk

Welcome to a new adventure in Year 3. We hope you had a relaxing summer break and are ready to learn! We have lots to look forward to this year. In Literacy, we will be exploring some wonderful books including Here We Are, Into The Forest and The Frog Prince.

Please continue to encourage a love of reading by listening to your child regularly. Learning your timetables, division facts and knowing number bonds to and within 10 are crucial. Having a rapid recall of these number facts will support your child throughout Earlsfield and their entire lives. Look out for this in the homework book to find out which multiplication table will be our focus.

Please encourage your child to question the world around them, make observations, ask them what they predict could happen and why as Science is also another important subject! Don’t forget that all children have access to Mathletics and Times Tables Rockstars. We value your support enormously and we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead. 

We are really lucky to have a number of fantastic specialists teaching in Year 3 this year including: French, Art and recorders. Your child will be bringing the recorder home to practise so please ensure they take good care of this instrument and remember to bring it to school every Tuesday.

Thank you to those parents who were able to join us for our recent Meet The Teacher. If you weren't able to join us we hope you can take the opportunity to read the slides.

 

Autumn learning

 Topic: How has the Roman invasion affected British life?

Through the use of drama, we will explore how others were affected by the Roman army and what made them so successful. In addition, we will analyse the pros and cons of joining the army. Using a wide range of historical resources, the children will learn how the Roman army worked and why it was so successful. Alongside history, the children will have the opportunity to work with our specialist art teacher to produce a piece of Roman themed art using a range of media. The Romans have certainly impacted on our lives today! 

Topic: How has the Windrush Generation influenced British culture?

In this topic we will be focusing on what the Windrush was and how it has changed and influenced British culture. We will also be finding out about what it was like to be a Windrush passenger just after the Second World War. The Empire Windrush's voyage from the Caribbean to Tilbury took place in 1948. Believe it or not, very few of the migrants intended to stay in Britain for more than a few years! If it hadn't been for the Second World War, the Windrush and her passengers might not have made the voyage at all. We will find out that during the war, thousands of Caribbean men and women had been recruited to serve in the armed forces. Therefore, we will be imagining what life would have been like on the Windrush voyage and think about the struggles people had to face in order to lead a better life for themselves in Britain. In addition to this, we will be finding out how the people who migrated to Britain added to British culture through sport, food and dance, making them inspirational.
