Welcome to Year 3

Newsletter

Welcome to Year 3. 

Please remember to complete the lunch menus and return them to the class teacher with the money in a named envelope by Wednesday morning each week.

Year Three have PE on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school from Monday to Friday. They will need a pair of trainers for Games on Tuesdays as these lessons will be outside. Please also send in a carrier bag for muddy shoes and a warm jumper for the chilly days. A change of socks is also useful.

Please remember to continue to support your children with 10-15 minutes of reading and maths each night, and to sign the homework journal.

Trips

Our first trip this year took place on Monday 24th September when we visited the Chiltern Open Air Museum as part of our Earth and Stone Age topic. We learned about life 10,000 years ago.

English

In English we are reading Stone Age Boy learning about life 11,000 years ago.

 

 
Maths

For the first half if this term we will be focusing on understanding the value of each digit in a three digit number.

At home, please help your children with their daily homework and practise the timestables regularly. By the end of Year 3 the children are expected to know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 timestables. They should also be able to find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number.

Please help and encourage your children to tell the time from a variety of clocks, including 24 hour clocks.

Science

This term our topic is Amazing Animals. The children will learn what we need to keep us healthy, and the function of the main body parts.

Year 3 will develop the skills necessary to plan and carry out an investigation, as well as beginning to identify what makes a fair test.
