Welcome to the Year 3 page.
WELCOME to our Year 3 class page.
We hope that you have all had a nice, restful holiday and are ready to return back to school. We have lots of exciting learning planned and cannot wait to welcome you all back!
Timings of the school day.
The doors will open at 8:45 and the register will be taken at 9.00. Children should be collected by parent/carer at 3.00 pm. Please remember to inform the office if a different person is coming to collect your child.
We are still going to ask children to wash their hands upon arrival and at different points during the day to ensure that we all remain healthy and can remain in school to continue with our learning.
We have P.E lessons on a Tuesday and Friday, so your child will need to come to school in their P.E kit on these days. They need to wear:
- a white top
- black shorts or black jogging pants
- plain black trainers or pumps
- a black jumper or jacket
Your child will take part in a reading session each week and will read with an adult on at least 2 days. Your child’s book will be changed on a Friday, please remember to record in your child’s reading record when you have listened to them read. Please ensure that your child brings their book bags in each day and that you are listening to your child read for at least 10 minutes per day.
Your child can also access Oxford Owl below for free using these login details:
Class login: year3hm20
Go to the Oxford Owl website and use the class login. Choose the same colour book band as your child brings home.
Look for this and then use the login details above.
Your child will have lots of chances to write across a variety of subjects, including English, Science and our Learning Challenge.
This half term, our learning challenge is Why do so many people go to the Mediterranean for their holidays?
Children will locate holiday destinations in the Mediterranean and name famous cities within these countries.
Year 3 will be working on using a variety of structures in their sentences to make their writing more effective, this includes the effective use of a range of conjunctions, adjectives and adverbs. They will continue to work on their ability to correctly punctuate sentences and also their ability to write in paragraphs.
The main focus for this half-term are children recognising angles, in particular right angles. They will also work on mental calculation and manipulating the additive relationship. We will continue to work on the 2,4 and 8 times tables and your child can use Hit the Button as a fun way to work on their times tables and number bonds.
Our Science topic this half term is ’Animals, including humans’ with a focus on skeletons and muscles. Children will have the chance to use different materials to build a skeleton and will investigate the three main functions of the human skeleton and muscles.
If you have Twitter, we will post pictures across the half- term so you can see some of the exciting learning that has been taking place!
If you have any questions or want to discuss your child’s progress, then please just ask. We are available in the mornings and also after school. Or if you would rather make an appointment, then please ring the school office to schedule a meeting.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Clavin and Mrs Hartley (Class Teachers) Mrs Hamer and Miss Iqbal (Teaching Assistants).
