Welcome to Year 3
Autumn Term 1 2021
Our year 3 team is Mrs Hird and Mrs Ireland. Mrs McCann will teach the class on a Wednesday morning.
This half term we will be looking at Fables. We will read and discuss a wide variety before learning to tell a fable 'off by heart'. We will look at direct speech and learn how to use inverted commas. We will also learn about adverbs.
Our class book will be The Creakers by Tom Fletcher.
In maths we will start by looking at place value and our understanding of number.
In our topic work we will be looking at local history. In this topic we will look at a variety of maps and aerial photographs of the local area. In Science we will be looking at plants.

PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays.
PE kits should be kept in school for the half term.
Please ensure you have removed any earrings on this day as children will not be able to do PE with earrings in. Please note that adults in school are not allowed to remove the earrings and plasters over earrings are not permitted.
As your child is now in the juniors, there is an expectation that they take responsibility for their own belongings. Please ensure that all uniform is clearly labelled. No toys or pencils cases are allowed in school.
We ask for the children to only bring their water bottle, packed lunc and book bag in to school. We cannot accommodate rucksacks or large bags.
Please remind your child to hand any letters that may need to be collected to a member of staff. Reading book should be brought in to school every day.
This half term we will start by refreshing the Year Two Spellings and phonics.
Please try and encourage your children to practice their spellings.
Reading - Please listen to your child read every night and ask lots of questions to ensure they understand what they have read. This should take approximately 10 minutes. Ensure you record that your child has read in the Reading Diary. Books will be checked weekly by an adult in school. Children must put their book folder in the box every day. Children who read regularly find writing easier, they see sentence structure, learn new words and fuel their imaginations.
My Maths homework will be set weekly on a Friday and should be completed by the following Friday.
Timetables. Children in Year 3 should now know their 2s, 5s and 10s and are now working on 3s,4s and 8s. Please support your child in learning their times tables at home. Children will be tested weekly on their times tables.
All children have log in details for Times Tables Rock Stars. Please encourage them to access this website at home.
Thank you for your continued support throughout the year
