Year 3

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.

Summer 2 Term

In this term the children in year 3 will be continuing to study “The World Cup.
This topic will involve looking at the history of the tournament itself and the trophy handed to the winners, the countries that are involved in this year’s World Cup plus the background of their involvement in the prestigious tournament and designing and creating our very own World Cup! This topic will not just be based around the football side (however much Mr Pitchfork would love that!) so all children in year 3 can find this interesting and exciting!

General Information

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.

English

This term we will be doing Biographies, Poems and Chronological reports. This is in accordance with our topic throughout the term which is the World Cup.

Science

Plants

Children will be learning about the parts of a plant, functions of these parts and carrying out investigations to test this.

Maths

This term we will be looking at geometry, mass and capacity, and recapping their previous topics from this year.  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.

Topic Homework

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.

Please also see our curriculum page for additional information.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Pitchfork and Mrs Holman.
