Yr 3 - Fantastic Firs

Welcome to Fantastic Firs!

Spring 1

Welcome back, Year 3!

 

Literacy

This half term in literacy we will be focusing on stories with historical settings. We will be reading ‘Stone Age Boy’ as well as lots of other books based during the Stone Age. We will discover key features of fiction writing and we will be focusing on setting descriptions. We will also be creating our own exciting stories!

We will be using lots of exciting vocabulary, punctuation and grammar, such as punctuating speech correctly, to make our writing FANTASTIC.

 

Maths

In maths this half term we will be learning how to multiply and divide. In year 3 we need to know our 3, 4 and 8 times tables – so you can practise these at home! This cohort will be the first to do the new multiplication tests in year 4 so it is important that we practise these skills.

Please keep practising your superhero maths at home – it is amazing to have a fast recall of facts!

 

RED TED

An important way to support your child’s learning at home is to read with them at least 3 times per week. If you child reads 3 times per week at home they will receive a star on their RED TED award!

 

Topic/Science

Our topic this half term is ‘Yabba Dabba Doo!’. In science we will be learning about shadows and light. Of course, we will also be learning about the Stone Age all the way through to the Iron Age!

 

We are GOLDEN and we SPARKLE!
