Welcome to Year 3. In the Year 3 team, we have Miss Farid (Year leader), Mrs Hill-Cornwell, Mrs Vincent, Mrs Ahmad and Mrs Raghu. We have lots of exciting things planned as part of our Stone Age topic for the Autumn term.
Should you wish to contact your child’s class teacher, please email the office and the message will be forwarded. If you have any problems with your child getting on to Google Classroom to complete homework then please contact the school office to arrange to discuss this with the child’s class teacher or write in your child's journal so your child's teacher is made aware.
In English this term we will be focusing our writing on the Stone Age boy. The children will be using this text to write stories, descriptions, diary entries, letters, reports and adverts. Please support your child in spelling the Key Stage 1 words and Year 3 and 4 common exception words.
Our texts for this half term are Dear Greenpeace, Sabretooth Sandwich and Esio Trot. Dear Greenpeace follows the story of Emily, a little girl who is worried that the whale living in her pond is unhappy so she write to Greenpeace, who offers her advice but insists that is impossible for a whale to live in a pond. The author, Simon James is a multi-award-winning picture book creator.
This half term we will be learning about place value and addition and subtraction. The children will be learning how to partition 3 digit numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. They will also be adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers using formal methods by exchanging and borrowing.
We will continue to do lots of practical work using a variety of resources to represent calculations and deepen our understanding.
At home, please help your children with their daily homework and practise the times tables regularly. By the end of Year 3 the children are expected to know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. They should also be able to find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number.
