EARLY WARNING... CLASS 3JG ASSEMBLY FRIDAY 23rd MAY
Don't miss it!
Welcome back 3JG…
Time to put the Chocolate away… The Easter holidays are over.
It is your final term in Year 3, so let’s make it a good one! I have had a great year so far and I hope you have too!
As you already know our new topic is Africa and we have so many wonderful things to explore!
Remember Africa is not a Country, it’s a Continent.
Do you know what the other Continents are called?
Is Africa the largest Continent?
How many Countries are there in Africa?
Answers to any of these questions will be rewarded with Tea Party Tokens, so get your thinking caps on! (Or ask a grown up to help you find out.)
The Lion King
To kick start our learning we will be watching The Lion King, which is set in the Pride Lands of Africa. We will be finding out about how the story makes sense by making a Story Mountain (the beginning, the build-up, the dilemma, the resolution and the ending). We will be looking at the setting of the film and the main characters, we are even going to have a go at acting scenes from the film – time to practice your ROAR!
During this half-term we will be exploring South Africa in detail.
We will be research these questions:-
Where is it? Who lives there? Where do they live? Which Animals live there? What are their habitats like? What are the geographical features of South Africa? What is its climate like?
We have many other areas of learning to cover this term, all linked to the topic of Africa. Music, Art, Design Technology, ICT and more!
Please keep up the hard work and effort you have all put into your Numeracy work this year. All of your teachers are very, very proud of you and the progress you have made so far.
There will be lots more hard work coming your way this term. Weekly skills tests will continue to be on a Monday morning, so make sure you come to school prepared.
If you have any concerns about Numeracy please speak to Mrs Godley as soon as possible.
Please take a look at the Weekly Skills Test examples that I have added below.
Tuesday 29th April – Doncaster Mosque. We have been given a fantastic opportunity to explore a place of worship sacred to the Muslim faith. We are very lucky that this trip is being subsidised by school funds. It will be a trip to remember!
Monday 9th June – The Deep. To link with our Africa topic we have organised a trip to Hull to the amazing aquarium ‘The Deep’. It will be a fantastic day where we will take part in workshops, explore the attractions and tanks and even have the chance to help feed the fish! More details to follow as soon as possible.
How about a Safari Sleepover at school? I think that can be arranged too! Watch this space!
