Year 3


=========== =====

Mrs Finch is our Class Teacher Mrs Gaskell is our Teaching Assistant

Welcome to year 3- I hope you had a fantastic Summer holiday.

This term we are going to be learning about stories from other cultures beginning with ‘Tiger Child’. We will also be looking at poetry and letters in the run up to Christmas. In maths we are beginning with time and the children will be learning to read an analogue clock in 5 minute intervals. In year 3 the children need to learn their times tables and we will be recapping our 2s, 5s and 10s and then moving onto the 3s and 4s this term. In the run up to Christmas there will be weekly times table tests, focusing on specific tables to develop rapid recall. In Science the children will be learning about rocks and soils.

More details of our research project for the term are available to download here

In Year 3 the children will require their P.E. kit on a Tuesday and their swimming kit on a Wednesday. However, P.E. kits should be in school every day. Homework, including words of the week will be sent home in the home/ school diaries on a Friday and should be returned by Wednesday of the following week. Diaries should also be in school each day for staff to write in. In Year 3 the children change their own reading books when they need to and there are opportunities to do this daily.

I am looking forward to an exciting term in year 3. If you have any problems or worries please don’t hesitate to pop in.
