Homework

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 at least three times per week.  They can choose a book from home or can take a book from the classroom.    Children are given a day for them to change their books each week and we hope they will change them on a weekly basis.

Please make sure your reading diary is in school on the correct day for teachers to check.

 

English

In Summer 1, Year 3 are going to be reading the children's classic Peter Pan by J M Barrie.  More well known as a Disney film, children will be able to see where the inspiration for the film came from and read about the adventures in Neverland.  .  We are also going to be continuing our enriched English curriculum in the afternoons so please ask your children about what they have been up to.

Topic

Our Science this term we will be looking at Plants.

We will be continuing to study the Romans, their life and impact on Britain.  The children had a great time at Lunt Fort, if a little cold, learning what is was like to be a Roman soldier.  

Thank you to all children and parents who attended our cultural diversity performance at the Town Hall.  Our children were amazing and a real credit to us all..

Maths

Children will be revising place value, working with 3 digit numbers and beginning to use formal methods to add and subtract.  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.

SWIMMING

Please note the change of class from the first week back.  3R will be swimming from Thursday 2nd May.  Children must have a towel costume and hat if their hair is long enough to go over their eyes when wet.  It is a very tight turn around so over Easter please help your child practise getting changed both into and out of swimming kits independently.  Please note also that no jewellery can be worn in the pool and must be removed at school or home.

Swimmers need  a costume, all in one if a girl and lycra swim shorts if a boy, swim hat if hair will get in eyes when swimming, a towel and goggles will be allowed only if goggle letter has been returned. 

PE - 3G and 3B will be having outdoor games on a Thursday so they do need an outdoor kit and trainers and MUST have an indoor kit in school at all times. 

Please see below our new Summer 1 spellings.  These spellings are becoming increasingly more difficult as we are now focussing on Y3/4 spellings.  Please make every effort to help your child learn these more tricky spelling patterns.
