Welcome back year 3!
Miss Clarke and I are very impressed with the progress the children have made already this year. This newsletter will provide information on our next half term in year 3. It also includes information about our routines and ways in which you can support us at home.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to email me.
In maths this half term we will be continue 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!
We will also be learning some statistics, including how to read and use bar charts, pictograms and tally charts.
This half term in literacy we will be focusing on instructional writing. We will be creating instructions that tell people how to wash a Stone Age animal.
After instruction writing, we will be writing a diary entry based on a popular book by David Walliams named ‘Ice Monster.’
We will be using lots of exciting vocabulary, punctuation and grammar, such as imperative verbs and adverbs to make our writing FANTASTIC.
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!
PE will be on a Monday. Please remember to bring your kits every week!
Swimming is now on a Tuesday afternoon so please remember your swimming kits every week!
Some form of maths homework will be given out every Friday and expected to be handed in the following Thursday.
Children are also expected to read 3 or more times a week and be practising their coloured spellings at home.
As well as this, 4 times a year a homework creative project will be given out.
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!
