Year 3 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 3
Teachers: Mrs Rennocks & Mrs Hampson
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Platt & Mrs Lee
Here is an outline of the interesting and fun activities we have planned for the year.
This term we will be developing our historical enquiry skills and investigating the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
In Spring we have a geography and science based theme, 'Rockstars'. The children will be exploring the questions:
- Is the UK the same in every region?
- Do the rocks influence the landscape?
Please ensure that children have both indoor and outdoor PE kits in school each day. Outdoor PE takes place on a Tuesday and indoor gymnastics/dance is on a Friday.
Spellings and homework
In Year 3, the children are continuing to work towards becoming confident, fluent readers, who show a good understanding of the texts they read. Please read 15 minutes every day and make a comment in the reading journal.
Children are given weekly spellings to practise at home. We will have spelling dictation on a Friday. Please encourage your child to work on their spellings regularly.
We are working our way up to the children knowing all 12 x 12 facts, please help them learn their tables regularly at home. The children need to know their 3, 4 and 8 times tables in addition to their 2s, 5s and 10s learnt in Year 2 by the end of Year 3.
Our timetable for Year Three is as follows:
- Mrs Rennocks teaches on a Monday and Tuesday.
- Mrs Hampson teaches Wednesday to Friday.
- PE is delivered by our specialist coach on a Tuesday afternoon and an additional session is taught on a Friday. Both, indoor and outdoor kits with pumps or trainers will be needed on both days. Please name all items.
- English, Maths and Spelling/Grammar are taught every morning.
- Foundation subjects are taught in the afternoons.
Please ensure that children have a water bottle in school each day. We encourage them to take their bottles home each afternoon so they can be washed.
In Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to bring a snack to school to eat at break time. Please ensure that this is a piece of fruit/vegetable.
Please use Class Dojo to contact Year 3 and look out for class messages and photos.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.
