Year 3

Croeso i Dosbarth Usk


Our teacher is Miss Bowen. This term in Language we will be using the books -   'Flotsam' and 'Leon and the place between' where will be covering narrative and range of non fiction text  (recount, instructions, persuasive and discussion and report text)

In mathematics, we will be covering a variety of topics. This year we are using Big Maths as our scheme and we will be covering 4 aspects of mathematics each day. Children will also be given number facts to learn known as 'Learn its' to help improve recall of addition and multiplication facts which can then be used for subtraction and division. Every Friday we have a problem solving session to develop our mathematical reasoning this will be linked to our calculation topic each week if possible.

Our topic this term is - Tudors in Wales.  In the is topic the children will be developing their knowledge of  the Tudor period and particularly linking it to people, places and events in Wales.  We will be visiting Cardiff museum, St Fagans and a Tudor Manor depicting life from that era. From our COOL day

(Choosing our own learning) we have brainstormed lots of fun and children lead activities to develop the different skills in history, art, DT, PE, Literacy and  Numeracy.

We work extremely hard in our class while having fun and learning new things about each other.
