Term 1 - The Victorians 

Literacy

This Term we have been studying this book; 

We have used this book as a stimulus for our 'Losing story' and have been writing our own from this. We have been detectives looking for clues, like she did in the book. 

We have also been learning how to use inverted commas for speech, how to identify homophones and how to identify the correct articles for nouns.

The Wider Curriculum

History: 

We have looked at the life of Queen Victoria, the lives of the rich and the poor and the industrial revolution. 

 

We have learned about some very important people from the Victorian era such as; Florence Nightingale, Dr Barnardo and Alexander Graham Bell. See if they can tell you why these people were so important and how they have impacted our lives today. 

 

Science:

We have been looking at light sources, whether materials are transparent, translucent or opaque and how shadows are formed. 

 

Spanish:

So far, we have learned numbers to 20 and basic greetings. 

Year 3 have LOVED learning the Spanish colours. See if they can remember some to use whan they are at home! 

Year 3 used chatterboxes to translate greetings from English to Spanish and conversed with each other.
