Hello Year 3 Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to the start of a new school year. I know that many of your children are excited about moving into Key Stage Two.
Next week we will be having a 'Healthy School Week' and all year groups will be participating in exciting and healthy opportunities. Look out for more information on the schools newsletter.
This term our theme is survival. We will be learning about how to be a survivor in many of the worlds extreme regions. For example, we will look at mountainous, volcanic and Arctic conditions.
Creatively, we will look at first aid, food, emergency procedures and signals to cope with the different conditions. At the end of the term we will set up some survival challenges for your children through role play.
For the first half term, we will be focusing on key skills: presentation, punctuation, spellings, vocabulary and the new Year 3 terminology.
Our focus in Maths is place value and number.
In active read, we are reading, 'The Abominables,' by Eva Ibbotson. We will continue to read the home reading books with your child in class. Please note that the expectation in Key Stage 2 is for every child to read once every two weeks with their teacher.
Your child should have a P.E kit in school every day. P.E days this term are Monday and Thursday.
If you have any questions or concerns please come to see us.
Mrs Moore - will be teaching on a Monday and Tuesday.
Mrs McCullion - will be teaching on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Mrs Kneller - will be with Class 3 every morning.
Happy half term,
Mrs McCullion and Mrs Moore
