Welcome to the web page for year 3!

Swimming is every Tuesday morning - please make sure your child has a swim suit, towel and goggles and a hat (for longer hair)

 

 

Literacy: 

Our Topic in Term 4 is Riotous Rainforests. We will be reading the story of the Great Kapok Tree and exploring the wonderful life of the Amazon rainforest, also exploring how we look after this very special part of the planet.

We will be using debate, poetry and story writing to build on what we learn this term.

Pen licenses for handwriting are beginning to be awarded to the children with the best handwriting - see below for guidelines.

Weekly spellings will continue.  You can expect a printed spellings list for your child, however if this somehow 'goes missing' you will be able to find the lists on the bottom-right of this page.  

One of the most effective ways for your child to learn spellings is by the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. It has the dual benefit of being an effective way of learning for most children, including those with spelling difficulties, and of being something the child can do independently, (although please could you check occasionally that they are covering and not copying the words). Another way you can help your child to learning their spellings is by writing out a list of errors for them to correct.  As the year progresses, the children will learn a variety of different strategies to help them learn tricky words.

Numeracy:

Concepts covered this term include:

  • Multiplication and Division
  • Money
  • Measurement - length and perimeter
  • Statistics
  • Fractions

Times tables: 2 x table

We hope that children can keep improving their speed and accuracy, as good times table knowledge underpins so many aspects of mathematics. Any help you can provide at home learning times tables and telling the time informally around home and when out and about would be greatly appreciated.  There will be a weekly, 10 minute times table challenge.

 

Homework:

Numeracy will be set online at www.mymaths.co.uk and your child will be able to select their weekly task by logging in with their unique password (details of which can be found inside their homework book on the first page).

Literacy involves the children making a choice about which homework they would like to do.  The homework tasks for the next two terms can be found on the 'homework wall' inside the front cover of their books and a digital copy can be found below.  The children should choose one homework per week and date the one that they have chosen to do. Their work will then be given a score based on effort.  There will be prizes for the children who's total scores  are the best in class at the end of term 3!  We will upload the homework wall for Term 3 ASAP! 

Your support in helping your child to develop their independence and return their homework book every week would be appreciated. We understand that this is not always possible especially if you have had a busy weekend. Please feel free to let us know via a brief note if this is the case.

Handwriting

In year three, the children begin to write with ink.  To earn their 'pen license' they should be able to consistently demonstrate the following in their writing:

All letters are correctly formed (like in the Nelson Scheme)

All letters are sitting correctly on the line

All short letters are the same size

All ascenders and descenders are the right height/length

All letters are joined correctly

Capital letters are bigger than lower case letters

Spaces between words are the right size (not too small or big)

Work looks neat
