Welcome to 3 Jupiter
Welcome to the Autumn Term and I hope you and your child are looking forward to a great year of learning!
Our first IPC topic, Scavengers and Settlers has a strong history focus, but will also have cross curricular links through our English unit on the book ‘The Stone Age Boy’, art and design, technology and dance.
In Maths, we will be using a mastery approach and will focus on place value, numbers to 1000, addition and subtraction, statistics, angles, 2D shapes and perimeter.
In science our topic on rocks will link with our IPC topic and include learning about how fossils are formed. This unit will include sorting rocks by their characteristics and planning an experiment. In our second science unit, we will be learning about animals, including humans, and their need for the right type and amount of nutrition. We will also be looking at the purpose of the skeleton and muscles.
Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that 3 Jupiter and the rest of the school get up to.
The children have made a super start to the year.
Really looking forward to the year ahead.
The Year 3 teaching team
