Welcome to Year 3 2017 - 2018
3D - Mrs Dean 3M - Mrs Mistry 3W - Mrs Warren
We are very pleased with how well the children have settled into Year 3 and are looking forward to another term of exciting and engaging topics across the curriculum. We have every faith that all children will be working to the best of their ability as well as having fun with their learning.
This term, we will be learning about the Ancient Romans and exploring different countries around the world in our Topic lessons. In Science, we will be investigating Skeletons and Muscles followed by Rocks, Soils and Fossils. The children are thoroughly enjoying their French lessons and have made very good progress so far. They will be learning new French vocabulary and further developing 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. Another exciting area of our learning will include Forest Schools and 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 - Thursday and Friday
3M - Tuesday 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.
