Chestnut - Year 3

Welcome to Chestnut Class!

Hello! I am Mr Vince and I am the teacher for Chestnut Class!

The children have had a great first half term back after the long break. They have settled in really well and got used to our new COVID-safe routines. Well done everyone!

In the first half of the term we had lots of fun investigating into Light and Dark in Science, starting a new language (French), learning about different settlements in Geography  and exploring emotions, feelings and behaviour in PSHE. We have also really enjoyed our Dance unit which was about a Nile Adventure as we travelled back to Ancient Egypt. In Computing we have been learning about Coding and have created programs involving moving characters, speech, variables and collisions. Your child can access PurpleMash (our computing programme) at home so can you show the amazing work they have been doing.

We have also been working really hard at improving our maths fluency and now have special maths fluency slots every day. All the children have TT Rockstars and Numbots logins so they can practise at home too.

This half term we travel back to Prehistoric Britain to discover about life in the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age. In Science we will be finding out about the functions of the skeleton and why it is important to eat a healthy diet, and in RE we will be learning about the Trinity.

Im really excited about the half term ahead, I really hope the children will be too!
