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 and Visits

We dressed up for Roald Dahl day and had fun creating witches potions, dream jars and Wonka bars. We also thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Roald Dahl museum.

Sing, Perform, Inspire!
Earlier this term, we welcomed members of the Chiltern Music Academy along with Year 3 children from a number of neighbouring schools to sing and perform new songs with us. We were accompanied by a talented pianist and were excited to perform to a VIP audience of parents and governors.

Maths

For the first half of this term we will be focusing on understanding fractions, both equivalence and comparison, and then moving onto telling the time to the minute and working out time duration using both analogue and digital clocks.

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 and those with Roman numerals.

Science

This term our topic is Helping Plants to Grow. The children will learn what plants need to keep healthy, and the function of the main parts. They will also experiment to see what might happen if these important parts were taken away.

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.
