Hello and welcome to Year 3! We are excited to be sharing your learning journey this year and have much planned to engage and excite you. Our Topic this term is called Through the Ages and we will be learning about history from the Stone age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will also be learning French.
Monday pm (outdoor) and Wednesday am (swimming)
An outdoor PE kit is required 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. A swimming kit will be needed for Wednesday mornings. Please ensure all kits' are named.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and be expected in the following Friday. There will be a piece of Maths homework linked to the week's Mathematical learning, so children can share their success.
Handwriting is extremely important in Year 3 as we will begin to join letters therefore we will also 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. Logins can be found in the front of your homework book.
Times tables tests will be on a Wednesday and completed tests be will sent home so you can work through errors with your child.
Topic homework is set termly and we would love to see as many completed from the sheet as possible. This term our topic is Through the Ages, which focuses on the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Please try to complete at least one activity per week.
