Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 !

Miss Lee and Mrs Shipton are  the class teachers with a great team of support, which includes, Mrs Jones, Mrs Iqbal, Mrs Denham-Marsh and Miss White.

 

Our English genre is adventure story writing.  We will focus on building a story with the correct parts and checking our writing makes sense, as well as embedding our grammar knowledge, learning new spelling patterns and practising our joined handwriting in order to improve presentation in all our work.  The children will also develop knowledge and understanding of how to use speech, punctuated correctly, within our writing.

 

Maths - We will be focusing on the place value of numbers up to at least 1000

* reading and writing numbers in words and numerals

* recognising the value of each digit in a three digit number

* comparing and ordering numbers up to 1000

* representing and estimating numbers in different ways

* solving number and practical problems

 

Science - Our topic this half term is rocks and soils;

* recognise that soils are made from rocks and organic matter

* describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within rock

* compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties

Developing our scientific enquiry skills and the ability to ask questions using scientific vocabulary.

 

 

R. E. we shall be looking at the unit 'Called by God'.  Answering the key questions:

What does it mean to be called by God?

In what ways does God call people?

How does God speak to people?

What sort of tasks does God call people to do?

Who has been/or could be called by God?

  We shall also focus on the Christian values of Faith, Service and Courage.

 

PE kit will be needed to be left within school incase we change the days we have P.E.  The usual days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays for both classes.

 

swimming kit will be needed on a Tuesday for 3ML for the first half of the year, with 3SS swimming in the second half of the school year.

 

Our Spanish topic this term is 'Greetings and Numbers'.

 

History will be the main focus of our topic 'Stone Age to Iron Age'.  We look forward to delving back in time to find out about the first humans, how people developed over time and what significant events happened in this period.  There will also be elements of art, ICT and geography helping the children to develop a broad range of skills.

 

Please can we make a request that every child brings their reading book every day.

 

All children have been given a multiplication card to learn each times table from 2-12.  Team points and certificates can be earned, so please encourage your child to practise these.

 

Spellings will be sent home each week, with a test to check on a Friday.  We do expect the children to know the meaning of these words and how to use them in their writing.
