Year 3 India
Welcome to India Class
Class teachers – Mrs Letman (Monday - Wednesday) and Mrs Norris (Thursday and Friday).
In the 1st half of the Autumn Term,our topic will be Tribal Tales. We will be looking at the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and how life compared to modern times. The children will identify similarities and differences between the ages and share their findings in different ways. After discovering that the Stone Age people invented the first needle, the children will be carrying out a Design and Technology unit to design and make a purse. This topic will also include a trip to Flag Fen so they can discover what Peterborough was like during this time.
In the 2nd half of the Autumn Term, our topic will be Mighty Metals. We will be exploring forces, friction, air resistance, magnets and metals by conducting Science investigations.
Please see the knowledge organiser below to discover the key knowledge and vocabulary we will be learning in this topic.
We will be swimming this term so please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit with them every Friday. This includes a swimming cap, towel and an appropriate swimming costume or trunks.

Homework will be on our Year 3 launchpad. Children will need to complete TT Rockstars and spellings each week.
India class will have their P.E. on Monday and Friday afternoons, please make sure that your child has their full P.E. kit on these days (including footwear). No earrings are allowed during P.E. lessons so if your child can not remove their earrings themselves can you please make sure that they arrive at school with no earrings in on those days, thank you.
Once again we are encouraging the children to read at home and there are chances to collect Class Dojo's for their houses!
We are starting to use Accelerated Reader, where children will have to complete quizzes based on their books to test what they have read.
