Year 3 Autumn Term:
We have a busy and fun-filled year planned for the children and are excited to get started.
This half term, we will be investigating the book ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura and creating a narrative following this work. We will then move onto a non-fiction unit linked to a link about Skara Brae.
In reading this half term, we will be focusing on an abridged version of 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' by C.S. Lewis. We are excited to launch our new electronic reading diaries this term 'BoomReader'. The children are still expected to read at least 5 times weekly and these should be logged on their BoomReader account. BoomReader will be monitored by year group staff weekly.
The children will be completing daily Maths lessons this term focusing initially on place value. Each Maths class will start the lesson with a basic skills related activity then move onto lessons and activities planned using the White Rose Maths resources. Although we will not be sending home Maths homework, we will still be testing the children weekly in Frog Maths. Children can still practice their times tables through their Times Table Rockstar accounts.
Science & Explorer Dome visit:
We are extremely lucky to be able to start this year off with a bang... Monday 11th, the children will have the opportunity to visit the Explorer Dome with their class as an introduction to their first Science topic of Forces and Magnets. The children will be discussing magnetic poles, push/pull forces, friction, gravity and will even get the opportunity to experience a rocket themed display.
Other areas of the curriculum:
This term, we will be looking at the Stone Age in History. This will also link closely with our English work. In RE, we will be looking at 'What Christians learn from the Creation story'. Our focus for RHSE is Being Me in My World.
Year 3 will be doing PE on a Tuesday afternoon. Children should come to school in their PE kit instead of their school uniform. PE kit must consist of black shorts or black/ navy jogging bottoms, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. They should wear a plain black / navy jumper if required. Please ensure that if your child has earrings, these should be removed at home before coming to school or tape should be provided to cover them. For more information related to school uniform, please see the Parent section of our website.
PPA will take place on Thursday afternoon. This term (up until Christmas), 3L will be swimming, so please ensure your child brings their swimming kit into school on this day. They should still wear their normal school uniform into school. While half the class swims, the other half will be participating in a music lesson with a music teacher.
3C and 3R will be doing PE and Art, so they should come into school on this day in their PE kits.
Correct school uniform must be worn at all times, and all garments must be labelled with your child's name. The labelling of PE kit and bags would also be extremely beneficial! Please can we also remind you about your child’s hair accessories ensuring that they are inline with school expectations. Your child will be asked to remove them if they do not comply. For more information related to school uniform, please see the Parent section of our website.
We are really looking forward to the year ahead.
