Welcome to Year 3! We are looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know each child individually. Our aim is to always do the best for your child in terms of attainment as well as emotionally and socially. We look forward to working as a team to ensure this happens.
This term we look forward to learning about the Stone Age.
We will be starting the year writing instructions, Stone Age stories and a recount. At home, you can support us by helping your child with their spellings , reading any stories they write and checking for spellings and punctuation.
We will start the term learning about place value. We will be working with three digit numbers. Please continue to use timestable rockstars and mathletics at home. (Keep up to date with homework on the homework page.)
In active read, we will be reading, 'Stone Age Boy,' and 'Ug.' We will be looking at understanding the text, any new vocabulary and in particular inference: 'reading between the lines.'
We will constantly be reading as a class through active read sessions, comprehension lessons, independent reading and reading to the teacher (usually every two weeks - this is recorded in your children's jotter.)
We encourage your child also to select texts of interest to them to bring into school and to choose books from their class library.
In History, we will be learning what life was like in Stone Age Britain. In Art, we will be creating cave art pictures, pottery and creating a model Stonehenge. We will be learning about rocks and soils in Science.
We hope to book a Stone Age trip to support our learning later on this term. We will keep you posted.
Your child should have a school P.E kit in school every day- including socks and appropriate footwear for sport. Trainers are recommended for games and athletic activities. Plimsolls or barefoot are generally best for indoor activity. P.E days this half term are Monday and Friday. We remind you that no earrings should be worn on those days.
We will be beginning lessons with invasion games : netball skills and outdoor and adventurous activities which may include teambuilding, orienteering, team and individual challenges and growth mindset.
If you have any questions or concerns please come to see us.
