Welcome back to the Summer Term everyone! We're excited to welcome you back to school. Our Topic this term is called Emperors and Empires and we will be learning about The Romans. In Science, we are learning about Skeletons and have got lots of fun investigations planned to answer key scientific questions.
During Maths this term, we will be continuing to learn about Mass and Capacity as well as developing our knowledge about fractions. We will then be moving onto money, shape, time, and statistics. To support new learning, it is really important that children are regularly practising their times tables and number facts.
In Writing this term we are completing a narrative text based on the book called 'The Incredibly Book Eating Boy'. It's an excellent story exploring a child called Henry's imagination. We will then be learning skills to help us write a fictional text based on a myth. During Guided Reading lessons, we will be reading a variety of poems and other exciting texts.
Monday Morning swimming and PE Friday afternoon.
An outdoor PE kit is required on a Friday which includes jogging bottoms, t-shirt, jumper/hoody and trainers. We recommend bringing in a carrier bag too as trainers are often muddy and covered in grass, so will not be able to be worn in the classroom. Please ensure your child brings a swimsuit/trunks, a towel and a healthy snack on a Monday as they will have a swimming lesson then. You may pack goggles and a swimming hat if you wish.
As school we have moved over to using Seesaw for homework. We will be setting one piece of homework every week for your child to complete using their personal Seesaw log in. If your child is unable to access Seesaw then we will provide their homework in their orange homework books. In addition to this, we would like children to be reading to an adult at home daily. When you have heard your child read, please write in their reading diary. Please do get in touch if you have any questions regarding homework. Homework will be set on Seesaw on a Friday and is due back the following Friday. If you have any questions with this,
Handwriting is extremely important in Year 3 as we will begin to join letters therefore we will also sometimes be sending home handwriting homework for the children to practise the join we have learned that week. It is imperative that children form letters in the correct way and orientation.
Times tables Rockstars (TTR) is an excellent way to encourage children to learn their times tables, we are focusing on x4 and x8 tables this term as well as consolidating previous times tables. All children have been given their log ins and are able to log in and play! Please encourage your child to play daily!
We will complete weekly times table tests in class and children will receive certificates when they complete a band. There are 20 bands in total and children will be working towards getting them all by the time they finish Year 6!
Spelling Shed via www.edshed.com - is full of games which are geared to encourage your child with spelling tricky and common exception words. Logins can be found in the front of your homework book.
Reading Books will be changed once the child has finished reading their book. There is a basket in the classroom for children to put their book in. Please ensure your child is bringing in their reading diary and reading book everyday as there is ample opportunity for children to read in class.
Bug Club via www.activelearnprimary.co.uk is an excellent way to practise reading at home. Children are linked to their school books and have have comprehension quizzes linked to the text accessed through a green bug icon.
