Welcome to the Wonders of Year 3!
Spring Term 2020
We have been so busy in Year 3 in the new year as time is flying by! From our learning about Extreme Survival in a range of environments to our Legend writing, and from looking at different magnets and magnetic materials to exploring how the different major religions pray, we have all put in so much effort and have a right to be very proud of ourselves. It is, as always, onwards and upwards in Year 3!
Please ensure that children have their School PE kits with appropriate footwear. Throughout the Spring Term we will be having PE lessons both indoors and outdoors. It would be very helpful if the children can bring in warmer clothing for PE as the days are still quite chilly!
Maths and English are sent home on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. The homework pages will be noted in your child’s Homework Diary.
Spellings are also sent home on a Friday and are to be learned over the week ready for a Spelling Test the following Friday. To help with the learning of these, children should write sentences which include the spelling words in their Homework Books. At the bottom of this page, there is a copy of all of the Year 3 and 4 spellings that the children need to know and should be working on throughout the year.
Please make sure that your child reads every day for at least 15 minutes. To aid with their comprehension please could you make sure that you read with your child at least twice per week, asking questions about what they are reading. The pages that your child reads should be noted in their homework diary and signed on a weekly basis. When your child has finished reading a book, a copy of their book cover can then go on our reading chart and they can independently choose a new reading book!
Children should be practising their times tables every day and know what numbers they need to be working on. This will support them greatly in their Maths lessons. Times Table Rockstars is great for this - so please get rocking!
If you have any queries please don't hesitate to ask.
I would like to remind parents that if they would like to volunteer to help in anyway please feel free to get in touch, an extra pair of hands is always gratefully received.
Thank you for your continued support
