Welcome back to school everyone! We're excited to welcome you into Year 3! We are going to have lots of fun this term and learn about many new things. In History, we will be learning about Stone Age Britain and how people lived during prehistoric times. In Art, we will be creating our own prehistoric pots from clay, inspired by the Bell Beaker people.
This year, children will be learning French! During the Autumn term, we will learn numbers 1-10, basic French greetings, classroom instructions and French Christmas vocabulary and traditions.
During Maths this term, we will be developing our knowledge on Place Value, looking at three digit numbers. We will also continue to develop our addition and subtraction skills.
As in all years, times tables are extremely important so we encourage children to practice their fluency daily.
In writing this term, we will be writing our own narrative based on the story 'Stone Age Boy'. The story is an exciting adventure story about a boy who goes back in time to the Stone Age and meets a friend called, Om. We will also be writing our own non-chronological report based on a non-fiction text 'Skara Brae'.
This half term, our end of day reader is The Firework Maker's Daughter by Phillip Pullman.
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 consolidating previous times tables this term. 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!
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.
