Year 3 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 3
Autumn 2021 Gods and Mortals
From nothingness came chaos; from chaos came air and water; from air and water came life. Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light. Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets. Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships. Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the Sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus. Then decide your own fate when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.
Help your child prepare for their project
Greece is a fascinating country that has a long and colourful history. Why not sample some delicious Greek food such as baklava or tzatziki? You could also research ancient Greek pots and sketch the intricate images painted on them. Alternatively, have fun taking part in a back garden Olympics, seeing who can run the fastest or throw a ball the furthest!
Our Literacy this term will be based on two books
Pathways to Write. We are starting the term with unit of work on the environment. This will be based on the book 'Tidy'. The children are also going to work with an artist in school to create scultptures using recycled materials - we can't wait!
Once we have completed our work based on 'Tidy', we will move onto 'Seal Surfer'. Our final wiritng outcome will be to write a series of letters.
Our Pathways to Read whole class text will be The Morning I Met a Whale
We'll be beginning with revision of adding three digits and then moving on to Place Value. Please check out the Knowledge Organiser for more information.
