Friday 6th September
Welcome to year 3.
Next week in maths we will be starting our first unit on place value and doing work on tackling tables and also tackling addition and subtraction.
In English we will be using the Mr Benn stories by David Mckee. The children have been listening to these stories and they will be planning, writing and editing their own version. We will also be looking at how to use a dictionary as this is a key skill and dictionaries are used regularly throughout the year. We will be doing a range of activities throughout the week to help learn and practise our spellings. Please support your child to learn their spellings at home.
In RE we will be learning about British values.
In Science we will be starting our topic on Rocks and soils.
PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday next week.
Next week is wellbeing week and there will be opportunities to take part in different activities linked to wellbeing.
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.
