Welcome to KS2!
This term in Cedar we are researching about the tragic night the Titanic disaster occurred. Within this topic, the children will look at the creation of the Titanic and the fateful events that led up to the eventually sinking of the greatest engineering feat of that era.
As a result of our Topic being the Titanic, the class text we are reading is Kasper - Prince of Cats, written by Michael Morpurgo. The story is a thrilling recount of the Titanic from a very unusual point of view. Will Kasper survive? Let's find out together! Within Art, the artist we are looking at and experiencing is Kate Shaw who specialises in pouring acrylic paint onto the canvas where she is able to deduce gorgeous landscapes and then makes them into even more beautiful paintings.
In maths, Year 3 are preparing to explore in more detail the importance of Place Value when adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers. This will then lead into a variety of other topics including; multiplication and division, column addition and subtraction using different strategies to explore larger numbers.
New to year 3 is MATHS FOR PARENTS. Maths for parents is a initiative created to enable parents and children the opportunity to explore maths activities together at home.
Pupils in Year 3 are expected to read aloud to an adult or older sibling at least 3 times a week. This must be evidenced within their planners to inform the class teacher that they have read. Each week, if a child has read 3 times, they will be rewarded with 5 Dojos and a homework tick which they accumulate to earn a reward.
PE Days are Monday Mornings and Friday Mornings - Kit the children will require is White Shirt, Black Shorts, Trainers and a Warm Jumper
