Yr 3 Mr Baxter
This half term, we will be looking at the topic ‘Viva Italia’. We have linked our literacy and will be writing our own version of the poem ‘Spaghetti, Spaghetti’ and we will be writing a diary entry. In topic, we will be looking at designing and creating our own pizzas. Looking at the different countries of Europe and finding out about the famous landmarks and capitals of Italy. We will also be looking at the similarities and differences between Britain and Italy. In Science, we will be learning about the functions of plants and investigate what plants need to grow. We will also be looking at some RE and learning about Christianity and finding out what it would be like to be a Christian.

Now that the children are in Year 3, they no longer receive a free snack, so please provide your child with a healthy snack that they can have at break time.
Your child should be taking their AR book home to read so they can be ready to quiz, can you make sure that they are bringing their AR book back every day. Our library slot is on a Friday afternoon which gives your child a chance to quiz on their books and change their books. They should be reading a range of fiction and non-fiction books.
Please can you make sure that your child is practicing their spelling (which are in the back on their Home Discovery Journal).
