Next week in maths we be starting our work on place value. Understanding place value is of vital importance to all areas of number work.
In English we will be using the book ‘The pebble in my pocket’ by Meredith Hooper. This book will also link to our science and art work. We will be learning about the history of our earth.
In our guided reading work we will be developing our dictionary skills so that we can increase our vocabulary in both reading and writing.
In science we will be exploring pebbles and rocks.
As we missed our wellbeing week cookery we will be making mini blueberry muffins this week.
Our topic this term will be exploring the question ‘How similar are to prehistoric people?’
Friday 7th September
Welcome to year 3.
This week we have reviewed tackling tables and introduced tackling addition and subtraction. We will be doing mental maths work every day this term.
It has been lovely to look at all the scrap books and see what exciting holidays everyone enjoyed. The children will have an opportunity to share these as a class on Monday afternoon and Dojos will be given out. So if there are any more scrap books to come in please remember them on Monday Morning.
Next week is well-being week so we will be taking part in fitness, relaxation and yoga activities and other mindful tasks.
In maths we will be recapping on our year 2 targets before starting year 3 work.
In English we will be using the ‘Mr Benn’ stories by David McKee and exploring the formula behind the stories then planning and writing our own stories. We will also be recapping on year 2 SPAG and reading targets. Our spelling sessions will link to this week’s spelling sounds/patterns.
We will also be starting our science topic on Rocks and soil and in RE we will be exploring spirituality.
Everyone has been heard to read and given a reading book and a reading diary. Hopefully everyone has seen the new planners.
This is just a reminder that information about what your child's class is doing is updated weekly on this class page. Teachers will post what is coming up, how you can help your child and suggest things that you could do at home. This is because we feel it benefits children to look at the curriculum before they are taught it and helps you know what is happening in the class before it happens rather than after it has occurred.
In the same way homework is called 'preview homework' and will focus on what the children are going to be learning about. We feel it is helpful to your child if they complete preview homework suggestions or activities. However we know that families are busy, have activities out of school etc and that this is not always possible. Therefore preview homework is optional and your child should not be penalised for not completing it and you do not need to provide an explanation to the teacher as to why it has not been done. There may be rewards and incentives for those who do complete their preview homework, but no sanctions for those who do not.
Please remember to check this page for weekly forthcoming class information and copies of preview homework posted.
