WELCOME TO YEAR 3
This year the children will be taught by Mrs Micallef and Miss Henshaw.
Year 3 - Classroom routines
It is important that reading folders are brought to school every day.
Reading diaries are checked every Monday and value points are given when children have read 4 times at home during the week (including weekends). It is very important that your child continues to read to an adult during Y3 and is given the opportunity to discuss what they have read.
Please ensure that their diary is kept up-to-date and signed weekly by an adult.
English homework will be spellings (using Spelling Shed) and will be set on Monday. The children will have 1 week to learn the words for a test the following week.
Maths homework is set on Friday.
P.E. is on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Children must always have the correct kit in school.
Each week a 'legend of the week' and 'writer of the week' will be chosen and we have a weekly raffle to reward good manners, behaviour and attitude as well as hard work.
AUTUMN TERM - THIS TERM OUR THEME IS STONE AGE TO IRON AGE.
Here is a really useful website to explore with your child -
English - we will be covering Y3 objectives for grammar and punctuation as well as looking at different types of writing (poetry, instructions, story settings, reports) and much of our writing will be linked to our theme. Our main texts are Stone Age Boy, How to wash a Woolly Mammoth and Stig of the Dump.
Maths - place value of 3 digit numbers and addition and subtraction strategies are our main focus for this term. In Y3 the children need to have secure facts of their number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and their 3,4 and 8 times tables.
Science - our topics this term are Rocks and Forces and Magnets.
RE -exciting escapes - looking at people from the OT and investigating Jesus.
ICT - online safety, developing the use of the Internet for research purposes, coding and spreadsheets.

All other foundation subjects (History, Geography, Art, DT) will link to our main theme.
