Welcome back from Summer Break everyone and a very warm welcome to Year 3! We're excited to welcome you back to school for the Autumn Term. Our Topic this term is called Through The Ages and we will be learning about prehistoric times and living during The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
We will also begin to learn French this year!
Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon.
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.
Children should have an orange homework book each. Every week, children will be given a piece of Topic and Maths homework to complete. The maths homework will always be to consolidate prior learning and children should have a good understanding of the task. Please do get in touch if you feel that your child needs further support with this work.
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.
