Year 3 2021 - 2022
Hello everyone. It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school and we've had a great time thinking about the 'Power of Yet' and having a 'Growth Mindset' by reading 'The Dot' and creating our own Kandinsky inspired collaborative art. Now the hard work begins ...
During Autumn, in English we will be looking at fables and shape poetry. We will be revisiting Year 2 spellings (download file below) and writing skills, and begin looking at inverted commas along with paragraphs. Spellings will be tested every Friday - spelling lists and strategies for learning spellings in Autumn (1) are set out below. Guided reading will take place three times a week - your child may bring home a copy of a novel and be asked to pre-read for the next session. If this is the case, it is important they bring their novel into school every day. Reading books will also be sent home - please record at least three reads with your child each week and record it in their reading record.
The children should have good recall of their x2, x5, x10 times tables. In our first few weeks, we will check the children's recall in this respect before moving on to the x3, x4, x8 times tables. Times tables tests will take place on a Friday - the children will also need to know the inverse calcuations (e.g. 8 times 2 = 16 16 divided by 2 = 8). http://www.timestables.me.uk/ generates online tests using the inverse too.
In Maths, we will be looking at place value, measure, shape, statistics along with written addition and subtraction (strategy sheets will be sent out as and when needed).
Our Topic is the Stone Age to Iron age. Although predominantly being History based, we will also look at and create Cave Art and in Design Technology, we will explore the Bell Beaker culture and create our own Beaker pottery.
Year 3 staff (Mrs Hesketh, Mrs McKenna and I) would like to thank you for your support. Please contact me if you need to discuss anything - either at the end of the day if i'm available, or via Mrs Golding.
