Welcome to Year 3 

The children in Year 3 have made a great start to the year and we are proud of the progress they are making.

 

You can help them at home by encouraging them to:

  • read every day
  • practise their spellings for their test each Friday
  • helping them practise times tables (by the end of Year 3, children should know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables and be able to count in 50s)
  • working on the maths objectives from their Home Learning Journals 

There are some useful videos explaining methods we teach at school here.

Please sign your child's Home Learning Journal each week.  They will be checked on Fridays. 

There will also be a homework project for children to complete each half term.

Look at what we did in the Autumn Term.

In the first half of Spring Term, we have learned about Spain.  We have travelled across the sea into the heart of Spain to learn about its physical and human geography, which we have compared with England.  

In English, we are writing information texts, setting descriptions, a story based on the book Journey by Aaron Becker and travel adverts.  In our reading sessions, we have explored Akimbo and the Snakes.  Our grammar has focused on the use of conjunctions and speech punctuation.

In RE, we learned about the Hajj and our French work has looked at clothes, colours and giving preferences.  In Art, we will look at the work of Joan Miro and mixing colours.

In Maths, we have been multiplying and dividing two-digit numbers by one-digit numbers and are moving on to statistics.  We have also been busy practising our 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

Fabulous Writing!

Year 3 have been working very hard researching and writing about Spain this term. 

Have a look at our information texts.

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should come into school wearing their PE kit every Wednesday morning ready for their PE lessons. 

Children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.
