Opal Class

Welcome to Opal Class

We are a class of Year 3 children.

Our teacher is Miss Carter-Lewis
and Mrs Warren is our teaching assistant.

Summer Term 2024

It’s going to be another busy term ahead of us in Year 3!

As well as our usual focus on English, Spellings and Maths, we will be continuing our History topic on Romans and learning about life in Britain during the Roman occupation. We will also be starting our Geography topic about Rivers, where they start and end and their uses, focusing specifically on the River Nile in Egypt.

In Science, we will be continuing our learning about plants and animals. We will be investigating the way in which water is transported within plants and understanding the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering parts. Our focus on animals will include the importance of nutrition for animals and humans and a closer look at skeletons and muscle groups.

We are also looking forward to our swimming lessons and African Drumming sessions this term! At the beginning of May we are looking forward to our whole school trip to Whispnade Zoo, not to mention Sports Week and our traditional Fun Day to celebrate the end of the school year!

Spring Term 2024

Spring term is another busy term with plenty to do.

In Humanities, we will be finding out about Spain in geography lessons and then in the second half term we will be starting to discover what life was like in Roman times.  We will be learning about Forces and Magnets in Science.

In Art, we will be looking at 3D sculptures and in French we are learning about Fruits and Musical instruments.

Times Tables tests will be on a Monday.  Homework will continue to be given out on a Tuesday.  Spelling tests and new spellings are also given out on a Tuesday.  Please continue to practice on Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed.

We are looking forward to working with our new classes.  As always we have a busy term ahead of us with lots going on.
