Year 3's Summer 1 Term
Welcome to Year 3's Class Page
This half term, we have many exciting things planned. Our topic is ‘The Terrific Tudors’. We will be completing an a study of an aspect of British history that extends our chronological knowledge beyond 1066. In this unit we will learn all about life in the Tudor times.
Last half term we were so impressed with the children's attitude to their learning and we have no doubt that they will continue their hard work as we build on our prior learning & develop our comprehension skills, handwriting skills, weekly spelling and times table knowledge and grammar skills!
In Maths we will be covering a range of topics as we follow the White Rose scheme, including measuring length and perimeter and fractions. We will continue to focus too on learning our times tables (in particular in Year 3 the 3s, 4s and 8s). Each week in class, we will continue to have our times table test, where the children will get a chance to progress onto the next times table by answering 40 questions in 4 minutes! Children will get certificates to bring home when they get all 40 questions right! They will also bring home their weekly test sheets so parents can see, at home, how their children are performing and which times table facts they need to be practicing. Please spend some time practicing times tables at home with your child and using Times Table Rockstars to help children with this.
Reading and library books and reading records must be in school every day. Children should be reading at home at least twice a week and having their reading record signed.
Homework will be given to the children on a weekly basis, each Monday including English and Maths activities. Homework is due the following Thursday at the latest. Spellings will be given on Fridays for a spelling test the following Friday.
P.E. is on Mondays for us this term. We are fortunate to be having P.E. lessons this term with a Sports Coach each week. Please ensure your child is equipped with the correct P.E. kit and that it is brought to school on their P.E. days. Indoor P.E. kit consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.
All uniform and PE kits, including pumps, should have names in them. If your child wears earrings then they need to be removed for these lessons.
Please take a look at our Long Term plan below and also our Knowledge Organisers which will give you an insight into what we are teaching in class this term and how you may be able to support your child's learning at home.
As usual, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Miss Andersson. J
