News from Year 3

Welcome to Year Three!

We hope you’ve had a wonderful summer and are ready for a brand new year of learning. We have some very exciting topics this term as we will be looking at Ancient Egypt followed by the Stone Age through to the Iron Age.  Our non-fiction English topic will also tie in with this as we will be finding out all about Tutankhamen.  Our focus in Maths this first half term will be on Number; where we will be learning about place value and addition and subtraction using mental and written methods.   In Science, we will be investigating all things to do with Forces and Magnets and after half term we’ll find out more about Animals and Humans.  As part of being in KS2, Year Three will also be learning to speak Spanish in MFL.

PE For this Autumn term, Year Three will have their PE lessons every Monday morning and every Tuesday afternoon so please ensure that they have their PE kits at school on these days.

Homework Homework will be handed out every Wednesday and will consist of spellings and another piece of work e.g. Maths, Science. This will help to consolidate children’s learning. The homework will then need to be handed back in on the Monday and the children will also be tested on their spellings that day.

Reading Children will be given a designated day to read with an adult at school. Their books will be changed on that day provided that they have read them with an adult at home.  Just to remind you that as a school we expect the children to read their school books at home three or more times each week.  Please sign the reading record provided.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to an exciting year ahead,

Miss Styles
