Welcome to Year 3!
We are so pleased to welcome the children back again after the summer holidays and we can’t wait to hear all about their adventures!
Our big question this half term is ‘How far can you throw your shadow?’
We will be learning and exploring about light and dark. We will be exploring why we need light to be able to see, how light is reflective and how shadows are formed, as well as exploring the size of shadows. Through this learning challenge question, we will be making links to other curriculum subjects, such as art & design and literacy.
This term P.E will be on a Monday afternoon and a Wednesday afternoon. Our P.E teacher will be leading the sessions on Wednesday afternoon. Please can children make sure they come to school in their full P.E kits on these days. Children should wear plain black leggings or joggers, white t-shirt and a plain black sweatshirt or hoody. Trainers must be worn during PE sessions.
The children will also receive a weekly guitar lesson this year. Our music teacher will come to school every Wednesday for the session. The children are really excited to start their guitar lessons this year. I’m sure they will tell you all about it after the sessions.
Children are expected to take their book bags home and bring the back to school the next morning on a daily basis. Children need to make sure they read at home on a regular basis. I also expect children to practise their spellings as they will be tested on these in school and also make sure they are regularly practising their timetables.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s learning, please see me or any member of the Year Three team before or after school. We are always happy to share the exciting learning of the children.
