Our work this half term will be based on finding the answer to the question What Does it Take to be an Athlete? We will be looking at diet, exercise and skeletons! This will involve the children investigating lots of different information and asking lots of questions on the way, it should be lots of fun! We will also be visiting Tesco for a "behind the scenes" look at how our food arrives on the supermarket shelf!
In Literacy we are using a variety of texts to support our writing. We are continuing to develop our writing skills using extended noun phrases (adjectives), adverbs, time connectives and connectives.
To support Year 3 with their reading, we encourage parents to read regularly at home, reinforcing the guided reading that is undertaken at school. Children will receive half termly homework in their Learning Log, which requires them to investigate different topics. They can be as creative as they want in presenting their work. Please encourage them to be neat and hand their homework in on time. In addition to this they will also receive some maths and spelling homework. It would also be great if you could help your child to learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables as well as practising their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
We have P.E on a Thursday and will be doing an optional lesson of PE each week. Please send your children with a suitable kit. This is a plain white t-shirt and dark shorts. They will also need trainers for outdoor games.
Please can you also make sure that your children have pumps to wear around school on rainy days.
If you would like to talk to us about anything, the end of the day is usually the best time so feel free to come and see us then.
