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.

This half term our topic is called Eco Warriors.  Our learning is science and PSHE-based.

We will be investigating some of the issues our planet faces, such as climate change and waste, and we will be thinking about what we can do to make a change. 

We will be learning about individuals who are campaigning for change, including Greta Thunberg.  We will write persuasive letters, a biography, setting descriptions and a short story based on the Tin Forest by Helen Ward.  We will explore non-fiction texts and research online to find information.

As we learn about recycling, we will also create our own art work and 3D sculptures from recycled materials.

Our Science work this term is about forces and magnets.  We hope to do lots of fun practical experiments.

In RE, will be learning about Judaism. the Torah and the Ten Commandments.

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.
