Happy New Year to everyone! We're excited to welcome you back to school for the Spring Term. Our Topic this term is called Rocks, Relics and Rumbles and we will be learning about Volcanoes, different types and purposes of rocks as well as understanding Earthquakes and key significant people in history. 

We will also be continuing to learn French. 

 

P.E

Monday am (outdoor) and Wednesday pm (dance)

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.

 

Homework

Children should each have their homework book and it is expected to be handed in weekly. Topic homework will be given at the beginning of each term and children should choose one activity to complete every week. Maths homework will be given either in their homework books or online via SeeSaw. The maths homework will always be to consolidate prior learning and children should have a good understanding of the task.

 

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. All children have been given their log ins and are able to log in and play!

 

We will complete weekly times table tests in class and send home the test for the children to practice any errors they have made.

 

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.
