Welcome back to Year 3
Welcome back Year 3
We hope that everyone had a lovely holiday and are back ready to begin Key Stage 2. We were really pleased to see all the amazing homework that was done over the summer holidays.
Our curriculum this term is based around the text Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. We are already one chapter in and hooked! In English we will be focusing most of our reading and writing around the book and other magical texts. During maths lessons we are focusing on number and place value with numbers up to a thousand. In Science we are looking at Forces and Magnets, while in Computing we will be learning all about communication using email. During D&T we will be looking at creating clay models of our own magical creatures based on ideas we get from our reading.
PE days :
There may be an extra PE session on some Tuesday mornings – the teachers will inform the children the week before their slot.
We are focusing a lot on reading in year 3 and would appreciate it if you could support your children in reading for pleasure and completing the reading journal activities on a regular basis.
Homework will be sent home every week and must be completed and returned on time. We are preparing the children for the future and homework tasks will be set to help consolidate the learning for the week.
All children have been provided with their login details for Mathletics. This app can be used on most devices and is a fantastic resource to support your children’s mathematical development. If a child achieves 1000 points in a week, they will be awarded a certificate and the class with the most certificates each week will receive the Mathletics trophy to display in their classroom.
Thank you for all you support and we look forward to sharing our learning with you throughout the year.
The Year 3 teachers,
