Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome to Year 3, your teacher is Miss Lyons and Mrs Hollingsworth helps us with our learning.
Please follow us on twitter to see pictures and updates of our learning journey!
This term, we have PE on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon so please remember to bring PE kits in. Our PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.
Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Spellings are given on Friday to take home and tested on the following Friday. It would be really helpful if you could practice the 3, 4 and 8 times tables at home as well as at school. Every child has a TT Rockstars log in which has been sent home.
Reading is very important and we should bring our reading book in to school every day! Try to read for a couple of minutes every night to become a reading superstar! We encourage the children to read for pleasure at every possible moment, they can bring their books into school to show us!
In English, we will be learning exploring Greek myths and finding out how to write our own! After that, we will be focussing on playscripts and will be using our knowledge of English and drama to delve into the topic. We will also be continuing to use conjunctions to extend our sentences, adjectives to make our writing more exciting and fronted adverbials for super sentence openers!
This term in Maths, we will be starting with perimeter and then moving onto money, time and shapes. We will be solving problems and building on our reasoning skills. We will be continuing to practice our timetables daily and using lots of fun ICT such as RM Maths & TT Rockstars to consolidate our Maths learning.
In Science, our topic is Light and Shadow. We will be looking at what light is, how light travels and how shadows are formed. We will also be discussing how to stay safe in the sun.
In Learning Challenge, we are learning all about the Ancient Greeks! We will be learning about the key dates during this time, their life and traditions, and how these traditions have shaped the world today.
