Welcome into the Spring Term, this half term we have many exciting things planned whilst researching our topic of 'Angry Earth'. We will be making our own volcanoes, finding out about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis in more detail! In the second half term we will be studying about Tudors! Taking a big jump back in time to find out how they lived, finding out about the kings, queens and their palaces.
In literacy, we will be working on improving our writing skills, especially our handwriting. We will be using different books to interest our writing during this term. In Mathematics, will be covering a range of topics including multiplication and division, statistics, measuring and fractions.
Reading books and reading records must be in school every day and children should be heard reading at home at least twice a week with their reading record being signed. Please make this is happening to ensure that your child will moving forward in their reading.
P.E. will be every Wednesday and Dance will be on Thursdays for this half term. Please ensure your child is equipped with the correct P.E. kit and that it is in school at all times. All PE kits including pumps should have names in them. If your child wears earrings then they need to be removed for these lessons. Please remember to label all your children's clothes and bags because if they get lost it is hard to relocate back to your child.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and it needs to be brought back in the following Wednesday. All we ask is that the children try their best with their times tables and spellings, as practice makes perfect!
Please can you also encourage your children to go on Timetable Rockstars at home to increase their confidence and speed with their times tables. Other interactive games to help with their learning can be found on Year 3’s class page on the website.
If you ever want a chat about anything do not hesitate to come and ask as I am always around!
