Welcome to Year 3’s Webpage

WELCOME to our Year 3 class page.

We hope you are all excited to return back to school after a restful break.  We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to and we cannot wait to welcome you back!

Timings of the school day.

The doors will open at 8:45am and the register will be taken at 9.00am. 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.

Important information: 

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

 

Reading 

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, asking your child ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions will really help to deepen their understanding.

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.

Writing:

As previously discussed, your child will have a lots of chances to write in many of their different subjects.

This half term, our learning challenge is What makes the Earth angry?

Children will investigate how volcanoes are created and locate and name some of the famous volcanoes. They will research what happened in Pompeii and also recreate an erupting volcano.Our class text this half term is the Firework Maker’s Daughter and your child will be writing their own stories using ideas from this text. They will also be writing poetry based on our topic of Volcanoes. We will continue to work on grammar and spelling skills each week. We will 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.

Maths: 

During this half-term, children will learn about parallel and perpendicular sides in polygons, work on being able to tell the time accurately and continue to learn about fractions.  We will continue to work on the 3,4 ,6, 7, 8 and 9  times tables and your child can use Hit the Button as a fun way to work on their times tables and number bonds.

Science:

Our Science topic this half term is Rocks. Children will  compare and group together different kinds of rocks, they will explore fossils and explore how soils are made from rocks and organic matter.

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 Hussain (Teaching Assistants).
