Welcome to Year 3!
We hope you have all had a lovely summer. We have enjoyed getting to know our new classes and the children have made a great start with their learning already.
Topic this term - We Will Rock You
During this topic we will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
Our English lessons will be linked to the books ‘Littlenose’ by John Grant, ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’ by Michelle Robinson and Kate Hindly and ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura.
In maths, the children will be learning about place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In science we are exploring rocks and soils and in art we are creating our own cave paintings.
Outdoor Learning and PE
Every Wednesday morning, the children will have PE with Mr Anderson and Outdoor Learning with Mrs Dyke. Please see previous letters for details of this, and ensure that the children bring suitable clothes with them every Wednesday.
Homework will be set every Friday. The homework policy is currently being reviewed and we will keep you updated with any changes! Please ensure the children are reading and practising their spellings at home on a regular basis.
Reading at Home
The children have all chosen a book to take home and read, and have all been given their own reading record. Anyone who reads for three times a week, for ten weeks in a row, will be awarded with a free book to take home! It is important that the children’s record is completed and comes to school every Friday to be checked by their teacher.
Please remember that, if you are unable to collect your child for any reason at the end of the day, you need to let the office know who will be coming in your place. We are unable to send children home with other adults without your consent.
Meet the Teacher
On Thursday 13th September, you are invited to meet your child’s teacher to look at the National Curriculum, the end of year expectations for Year 3 and ideas of things that can be done at home to support your child. This will be held at 2:30PM in 3KD. You will need to sign in at the front office if you wish to attend.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Wake & Miss Davenport
