welcome to Year 3 Autumn 2022
Our year 3 team is Mrs Hird, Miss Shaw and Mrs McCullough.
Our class Reading book will be:
In maths we will continue to follow a mastery approach and we will look at: Place Value, additiona and subtraction, multiplication and division. We will have daily arithmetic lessons. We will be working hard on our Times Tables. Children leaving Year 3 are expected to know the 2,5,10, 3, 4, 8 multiplication facts. To help us achieve this please encourage your child to practise every day.
Our Science unit is Animals including Humans.
We will learn about the different foof groups and what makes a balanced diets. We will also learn about the skeleton and how muscles work.
In Hostory we will learn about the Stone Age.
PE Days will be Thursday and Friday for the first half of the term. However, with the warmer weather we may change this and children should have their PE kit in school every day.
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 lunch 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.
In class we will be looking at the Year Three spelling rules. Homework will be set each Friday on Ed Shed. This work will be related to the work we have completed in class.
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
