Welcome to Year 3! Our work this half term will be based on finding the answer to the questions ‘What Makes a Healthy Body?’ and ‘What Makes the Earth Angry?’ This will involve the children investigating lots of different information and asking lots of questions along the way, it should be lots of fun!
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 adverbials and connectives.
In Maths we will be doing lots of work on place value, and practising our times tables. It would 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.
To support Year 3 with their reading, we encourage parents to read regularly at home, reinforcing the guided reading that is undertaken at school. Homework will be on Seesaw this year. Please contact your child’s class teacher if you have any problems with logging in.
3 Red have P.E on Mondays and 3 Blue have P.E. on Fridays and we will be doing extra activities outside whenever we can. Please send your children with suitable shoes for P.E.
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, or send us a message on Seesaw.
