Welcome back to the Spring Term everyone! We're excited to welcome you back to school. Our Topic this term is called Rocks, Relics and Rumbles and we will be learning about Volcanoes, the Earth's layers and key geologists in history. In Science, we are learning and Forces and Magnets and have got lots of fun investigations planned to answer key scientific questions.

 

Maths

During Maths this term, we will be continuing to learn how to multiply and divide. We will then be moving on to measurement, specifically, length, perimeter, mass and capacity before learning about fractions. To support new learning, it is really important that children are regularly practising their times tables and number facts.

 

English

In Writing this term we are completing a suspense narrative based on the book called Wolves In The Walls by Neil Gaiman. It's an excellent story exploring a child called Lucy's imagination. We will then be learning skills to help us write a non-fiction text based on Earthquakes. In Spring term 2, we will be reading The Street Beneath My Feet and The Little Boy Who Can't See to help us develop our narrative and non-chronological report skills further. During Guided Reading lessons, we will be reading The BFG, a variety of poems and other exciting texts.

 

P.E

Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning.

An outdoor PE kit is required on a Thursday 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

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.

 

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.
