WELCOME TO YEAR 3!
This half term we are learning all about the Rainforest! We will be using this topic to learn about growing and plants in science, comparing climates and environments in Geography and persuasive writing in English. (Prepare for the emotive language being used at home to persuade you to give in to them!)
We will be finishing off our Eucharist topic of Listening and Sharing in RE where we are looking at the parts of the Mass and the importance of sharing with others. We will then be looking at Lent and Easter in our Giving All topic.
In Maths we are learning about money, statistics, length and measure and fractions.
In PE we are learning the basics of netball and learning to accurately throw and catch using chest passes and shoulder passes.
We are continuing our Samba drums tuition in music and learning about the artist Henri Rousseau and his Jungle themed art.
A busy half term for our children! Take a look at our latest photos!
As ever, if you have any worries or concerns then please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Tyrell or myself.
Homework: My Maths - computer based maths will be set on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday.
English homework / topic: - Purple homework book - sent home Friday to be brought back into school by Wednesday.
Spellings: Orange spelling books will be sent home each week for a test on a Friday. Children will have chosen their own spellings looking at those that are NOT highlighted already from their spelling test. They will then test their peers and choose more spellings for the following week. Please help them learn these at home.
Reading: Please can you hear your child read every night and sign their reading record book. Once children have finished their book they are to place it on the computer table so they can take a test. 80% or more is a pass for the book.
Children should also be completing a couple of lessons on reading eggs per week.
Children should have their PE kit in school at all times we have PE on a Wednesday and Multi skills on a Thursday. Outdoor kits and trainers to be worn on a Thursday please.
Year 3 will be going swimming in the Summer term.
