Welcome to Year 3
As a newly qualified teacher, I would like to personally thank the support of all our year 3 parents for the up and coming year. I am truly thoroughly excited for the journey. In this term the children in year 3 will be learning about Superheroes. During this topic we will be focusing on the magical world of Superheroes and looking at the people who are in heroes in our everyday lives.
P.E. kits are needed on Tuesday and Wednesday but I advise children to leave them in school all week so they know they have it. On these days can you please ensure that long hair is tied back and that earrings are not worn. It would also be helpful to label your child’s PE kit with their name.
Reading books need to be handed in on Monday morning and remember to change your book any morning so that you can achieve your goal of 20 times each month.
Weekly spellings will be given out on Mondays. Your child will be tested on a selection of these the following Friday. Also during the week, your child will be focusing on these spellings during handwriting lessons. Please support your child at home by helping your child learn their weekly spellings.
This term we will be doing Fact File, Diaries, Letter writing and Narrative stories. This is in accordance with children writing their own comic book story for our Superhero topic work.
Children will be learning about the effects that different forces have on the world and the importance of them.
This term we will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. Please remember to visit www.mathsisfun.com as there are many different interactive games and revision tools for your child to help them with their learning. We will be working in year 3 to keep challenging ourselves and be the best we can be.
We are continuing with our approach to homework this year and in addition to their reading book, spelling and maths homework, children can also choose to complete homework projects based upon our topic. The projects are designed to cover a range of areas to suit every child. Remember that you can work with your child on homework and it’s a fun activity to do with your child.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Pitchfork and Mrs Holman.
