Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely break and are ready for the Autumn term.

The teacher in Year 3 is Miss Blyth. The teaching assistants are Mrs Anderson and Mrs Moorfield.

 

Autumn 1 Learning
In Maths we have begun working on place value. In our English lessons we are reading the Stone Age boy (linked to topic) and producing some lovely descriptive writing. In our Topic lessons we are learning about The Stone Age. We’ve been looking at what life would have been like for the Stone Age people and how different it is from our lives! During Science lessons we have been looking at Rocks!

 

Autumn 2 Learning
Next half term we will be working on multiplication and division in our Maths lessons. In English we will be learning about what features we need to include in an information text. We will be looking at light in our Science lessons and completing lots of Autumnal Art!

Homework

Homework will be given out on Thursdays, and will be expected back in on Tuesdays. If you need any help understanding what to do with the homework, please come and see either myself, Mrs Anderson or Mrs Moorfield!

Reading Books

As well as weekly homework, your child has a reading book which they are expected to regularly practise reading at home.Each child will be listened to read at least once per week by an adult. A reading quiz will take place on the computers before a child can take home a new book.

Class Dojo

We use Dojo points in school to reward positive behavior. You can see the points your child has been awarded. Please sign up and stay in touch.

Snack/ Water

If you would like to provide your child with a healthy snack, they can keep this in their tray or book bag. If you would prefer to have an extra snack provided for your child by the school, there is a cost of 20p per day. The children are responsible for looking after this money, and buying the snack at play time.

Please provide your child with a labelled water bottle. These can only be filled with water (not juice!).

PE

We have P.E. on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will need a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps in a bag.

Please ensure these are all clearly named.

Topics

This half term our History topic is The Stone Age.  This topic will cover history objectives, learning about how people lived during The Stone Age and into the Bronze Age.  We will be thinking about how people went about their daily lives and compare them to how we live today.

Our Science topic for the half term is Rocks and Soils.  In this topic the children will learn about different types of rocks.  They will discover how rocks are formed and how this affects their properties.
