Year 3 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 3 with Mrs Houghton, Mrs Gibson and Mrs Nichol
Throughout our school, the expectation for reading is the same. We continue to work towards our reading challenge of reading 5 times per week and encouraging Every child to read Every night. Read more about our whole school reading policy by clicking here.
Reading bags should be brought into school daily with reading records, reading book, library book and spelling books (on Mondays to receive new spellings for the week).
Children are encouraged to regularly access Times table Rockstars to help support them with their knowledge of table facts, and build speed with their recall of these. To access this please click the icon above.
Children are encouraged to regularly access Numbots to help support them with their knowledge of number facts, and build speed with their recall of these. To access this please click the icon above.
Homework is set every Friday and will be a combination of both work in homework books and online tasks; which might inlcude tasks on Purple Mash, Times Table Rockstar, Reading plus, My Maths or Numbots.
PE kits should be worn on your child’s PE days. PE Kit is white t shirt, navy blue or black tracksuit bottoms (no logos) and school jumper or plain hoodie. PE days for Year 3 are: Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.
This half term we will be visiting the church in our local area (St Michaels) and Bethany
Christian Centre. The children will be looking at recounts of the visit. Another study will include reading around The butterfly Lion. We will be ending the term with Advent and how this is important.
Our half term focus is multiplication and division. We will continue to use TTRS with children for their fast recall and explore lots of areas in maths that children still find difficult. This is part of our 'catch up Friday'
Science will include looking at plants, their growth over time and what they need to survive. We are so excited to start our Geography topic where we will be looking at our local area and comparing it to other localities. Aswell as this we will continue to enjoy Music, PE, French and our Fridays are themes everyweek!
