Year 3

<back to classes

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back to a new Autumn term in Year 3.

In our maths learning we will be looking at place value, ordering and comparing numbers to 1000 and adding and subtracting three digit numbers. We will also be learning our x3 and x4 times tables so please quiz your child on these regularly.

In English, we will be developing our written work by using conjunctions, openers, paragraphs and mixed punctuation. We will use different texts to help us achieve this and will be learning how to adapt our writing for different purposes such as information reports and newspaper articles.

In our science lessons, we will be examining animals and humans and identifying needs, requirements, bones and digestion. We will also be looking at rocks and fossils

Our geographical skills will also be enhanced as we look at how volcanoes and earthquakes are formed as well as practicing our fieldwork skills as we study our local area.

Our history learning will take us right back to the Stone Age and examining how life began to progress through to the Iron Age.

Our religious education will focus on what it means to be a Hindu in Britain today and our Design technology studies will focus on packaging and design.

A reminder to all – please can you ensure that your child has labels in their uniform and that they come into school in their PE kits on the day of their PE lessons. Class 7 will be having their PE lessons on Tuesday morning each week and Class 8 will be having their PE lessons on Monday afternoons.

Also, reading books and planners need to be brought into school every day, and should be signed every time you listen to your child read. Homework will be sent out on Friday and must be returned by Wednesday of the following week.

Thank-you to all parents for your continued support.
Mrs Cameron and Mrs Tahanci
