Year 3 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year 3 with Mrs Oldman, Mrs Harrison & Miss Harris
Welcome to the Year 3 Homepage!
Here you will find out everything you need to know about what Year 3 are getting up to in school.
Welcome to the Summer term
Summer term in Year 3 is fantastic!
This half term, we are learning about adventures and journeys. In our writing lessons, we will create our own adventure stories inspired by the language of author Berlie Doherty and by the wordless picture book 'Journey' by Aaron Becker. In our shared and guided reading lessons, we will use clips from the Disney film 'Up' and different atlases to learn more about adventures and explorers and to practise our reading skills. In history, we will learn about the acheivements of some of the earliest civilisations. In science, we will continue to learn about magnets before moving onto a new topic all about plants when the weather turns warmer! We will go on some adventurous journeys ourselves in other subjects across the wider curriculum.
We continue to be supported on Mondays by our student Miss Jones. She will be supporting in the classroom and working with individual children and groups.
Please use the tabs above to find out more about what your child is learning about in English and in Maths and for some educational games. Also, using the links above you will also be able to access key information linked with how to contact us and a reminder of what your child needs to bring in each day.
In Year 3, homework is set on a Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday.
Homework is one task linked to our learning in school that week - either English, Maths or from the wider curriculum. It should take your child about 20 minutes and should be able to be completed independently.
There is also a spelling task to complete each week linked to our learning in spelling lessons.
We love reading in Year 3. Children become better readers by practising reading as much as possible. We would encourage children to read with an adult or to be read to at home every day for 10 minutes. Children will bring home a levelled reading book that they can read with you. When children have read the book 3 times with an adult at home or at school, they may change it for a new book in our class library. We will also share many texts together in class in our shared and guided reading lessons and we will end every day with a shared read together.
Being able to recall times table facts quickly and accurately helps children succeed in all of our maths lessons. In Year 2, children learnt the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. In Year 3, we have learnt the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Repitition is key to knowing the facts quickly and accurately. Please help your child at home to practise these times tables as much as they can. Questions, chanting and Times Tables Rockstars are all good ways to learn.
PE days : On Wednesday afternoons we do dance with Chloe from House of Dance. On Friday mornings we do gymnastics with Mr Bell. Please wear your PE kit to school on Wednesdays and Fridays.
We will also enjoy 2 extra PE sessions learning how to play golf on Tuesday 18th April and Tuesday 25th April.
Snack - Toast is 25p a day. Please book your snack on Parent Pay for the week ahead. You could also supply your child with a healthy snack.
