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 we will be studying oceans across the world, all about light in science, shading techniques and watercolour in art and swimming in PE.
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.
We have pieces of home learning this term which we strongly advise children complete as it will support their work in class.
Year 3 have PE on Mondays. Please ensure that your child has a PE and a games kit in school. For indoor 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. Trainers are better for games as they shall be outside and again socks will be useful if they are wearing tights. Some second-hand PE clothes are available in school; please ask for details at the office. Many thanks.
