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.

Children are able to change their reading book as often as required. Comments are encouraged and are to be recorded in their Reading Diary. Teachers will be checking this on a regular basis.
