Year 3 Spring Term:
We hope that you have all managed to have a relaxing Christmas break! We have a very busy and exciting term ahead of us as preparations for our Easter production will begin to take place!
This term, our English work will be based on a few texts, starting off with a poetry unit then moving onto a very current topic related to a text called The Flood by Alvaro F. Villa. Our History lessons will focus on the Romans.
We will continue to encourage our children to immerse themselves in reading good quality texts for pleasure, and we will provide children with suggested books to read at a level appropriate for your child. Our classroom libraries have a wide range of texts that the children are encouraged to select from and enjoy both inside and outside of school. Continuing from September, we are again asking the children to read five times at home. We ask for your support in this by logging these reads on Boom Reader. Our reading raffle continues so fingers crossed your child could be picked out next, remember every week that your child achieves their five reads at home will earn them a ticket in the raffle! It would be fantastic if you could, whenever possible, discuss what they are reading with them.
We will be looking at books linking closely to the topics in our curriculum. We will be starting with a seasonal poem then moving onto The Flood by Alvaro F. Villa. There will be a big focus on basic skills, handwriting and on broadening vocabulary across a range of writing genres.
We will be starting our work delving into multiplication and division and then moving on to shape and length. In preparation for the national Year 4 Multiplication Check, we will dedicate some time to working on the children’s times table knowledge. We would encourage your child to continue learning at home, using their TT Rockstars login wherever possible. If children would like to practise for the Year 4 Multiplication Check, they can access the following website to help them: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check
This term we will be learning about Light and Shadow and then some work on Plants
P.E. and Swimming
Continuing this year, children are required to wear P.E kits on P.E. days. For year 3, this will be a Tuesday. Kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. Please ensure that if your child has earrings, these must either be removed by the child themselves or taped up with tape provided from home. Please bear in mind the weather and you may feel that dark coloured joggers and a dark sweatshirt or hoodie may be required. Naming PE kit items is highly advised as many jumpers were left unclaimed and unnamed last term.
On a Thursday afternoon, the children will continue to be enriched with an art lesson from Mrs Ammonds and an exciting sporting opportunity from an outside professional. This will mean that 3L and 3R will need to come to school in their P.E. kit on Thursdays. 3C will be swimming and therefore will need to bring in their swimming kit each Thursday. Please note also that if your child is not taking part in swimming that week a note must be written explaining the reasons.
This will start this week on Thursday 11th January 2024.
Correct school uniform must be worn at all times, including hair accessories in school colour. All items of uniform must be labelled with your child's name, we have had many parents ask about missing items however they were unnamed. Named items will make their way back to the children.
