Iguanas Year 3

Welcome to Iguana Class!




Our teacher is Mrs Diplock

Our Class book this term (TBC)


Will Rainforests always exist?

As part of this topic the children will be learning about climate zones and extreme weather around the world.  They will be zooming into the places and climates around the equator.  This will involve finding out about the habitats and creatures that survive the extreme climates and comparing an Amazon Rainforest to a forest closer to home. 


The Equator

Layers of the Rainforest

This term we will be writing a story about a flood.ENGLISH 


This term, as well as writing a dramatic story based on a flood, the children are using their knowledge of extreme climates to write a holiday Brochure for Antarctica.  


In Maths this term, the children are reinforcing their knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and extending their strategies for multiplication and division, including written methods.  By the end of year 3, children should be secure with their knowledge and rapid recall of the 3, 4 and 8s.  They will need to continue to learn their times tables for homework, to help with this we will be giving everyone a login for 'Times Table Rock Stars' .
