Welcome to Year 3 2017 - 2018
3D - Mrs Dean 3M - Mrs Mistry 3W - Mrs Besley and Mrs Hanson
The children have all come back to school with energy and enthusiasm for the Summer Term! We are very pleased with how well they have settled down and are demonstrating a mature approach to their tasks in school. We are looking forward to yet another term of exciting and engaging topics across the curriculum.
This term, we will be learning about Ancient Greece and developing our map skills in our Topic lessons. In Science, we will be learning about keeping plants healthy and then later on in the term we will be exploring Light and Shadows. The children will continue to learn new French vocabulary and will further develop their speaking and listening skills.
We will continue to focus on UNICEF's Children's Rights throughout the curriculum to help the children understand their rights and responsibilities. Also, where possible, we will be incorporating outdoor learning activities in our lessons.
The children have P.E. timetabled twice a week. However, they may have additional sessions outside of these times in order to promote and support healthy lifestyles. Please ensure your child has their full P.E. kit in school everyday and especially on these days:
3D - Monday and Friday
3M - Thursday and Friday
3W - Monday and Thursday
P.E. kit should include: white T-shirt, blue shorts and plimsolls (indoor P.E.).
Dark sweatshirt and track-suit bottoms or jogging bottoms with trainers (outdoor P.E.).
Homework will be set every Friday and must be handed in on the Wednesday of the following week. Homework tasks will consist of a spelling task, Maths or a Reading activity and an additional challenge. We will expect the children to read daily and practise their multiplication tables.
We are available at the beginning and at the end of the day for queries. If however, you have any concerns please make an appointment to speak to your child's class teacher via Mrs Harris.
