Maths

Children will learning about place value this half term.  It is really important that children know number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and also their times table recall facts.  The children will have a weekly times tables test so please try and help your child learn them.  Children will be looking at fractions and making use of some of the extra resources our new whiteboards have to offer.  Below are some useful links to help number bond and times table recall.

Homework

Homework will be in the form of a Family Learning Project which will be issued in the last week of each half term. Additional work may be sent home if this wil support your child's learning further.

Spelling, reading and times table practise is also an expectation in Year Three. 

Spellings - A list of words for the half term is given out at the start of each half term.  If the list has been lost, a new list can be found in the attachments below. Spellings will be tested on Fridays.

Reading - Children are expected to read at home as much as possible. Due to current circumstances, we are not able to send books home or reading logs but please do ensure your child continues to read at home.

Times Tables - Year Three children are expected to rapidly recall multiplication facts for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables by the end of the year. Please support us in doing this at home by practising these as much as possible.

Home Learning

In the event of a bubble closure, all children have been provided with a Google login and password to access Google Classroom. The username will be in the form of aother@williamshrewsbury.com, where 'a' is their first initial and 'other' is their surname. This will allow them to login to google.com and access the Year 3 class on the school's Google Classroom. Children are currently being trained to use Google Classroom in their ICT lessons.

If your class bubble should be closed, your child will be sent home with a class learning pack to be completed until you receive further notice about work on Google classroom.
