Year 3

 

TERMS 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 3 and the first year of Juniors.  We have an exciting year ahead of us with lots of engaging topics which we know your children are going to love! Coming up in Term 1 and Term 2 we will be studying oceans across the world.

 

In English this term, we will be honing our descriptive writing skills, looking at cross - curricular texts and creating our own pieces of writing painting with words. In our reading sessions, we are practising our reciprocal reading skills using a fascinating picture book without words. In Maths, we are learning all about numbers up to 1000.

 

 Home Learning

We have pieces of home learning this term which we strongly advise children complete as it will support their work in class.

 

  • Reading - 20 minutes 5 times a week. 

 

  • Spellings - we shall be sending home spelling homework weekly. We will practice these in class throughout the year but will also encourage them to look at them at home too using Purple mash - logins shall be issued in due course. 

 

  • Times Tables - children will learn their times tables at their own pace, beginning with 2, 5 and 10s.  There will be a weekly quiz on a Friday to check their progress. There are a variety of ways children can learn their times tables facts including online games, music CDs, repetition and mini-quizzes, workbooks and posters.  The children will be able to use Times Table Rock Stars at home to practise their times tables.  More details to follow.

 

  • Mathletics - Mathletics tasks will be set fortnightly. These tasks will link to classwork.

 

  • Topic Home Learning - we have provided a variety of suggestions of fun and interesting activities that the children should try to complete independently, linking with our learning in class.

 

 

 

 

PE 

BOTH CLASSES ARE DOING PE EVERY FRIDAY.   WE ARE DOING FOOTBALL SO PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY ALL HAVE A NAMED GAMES KIT IN SCHOOL EVERY FRIDAY. THANK-YOU!

Please ensure that your child has a PE and a games kit in school.  For PE, the children need shorts, a T-shirt, plimsolls and possibly a pair of socks if they are wearing tights.  For games, they need a T-shirt, tracksuit bottoms or similar and a long sleeved top like a fleece or a sweatshirt.  Old Trainers are better for games as they shall be outside and again socks will be useful if they are wearing tights. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to take the children for swimming lessons as the Stour Centre is closed for refurbishment.
