Welcome to Class 3
Hello, we are Year 3 and we are taught on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday by Mrs McNeill. On Thursday and Friday we are taught by Mrs Darwin.
You can keep up to date with what we are doing everyday by checking our Twitter and Facebook pages.
This half term we are focusing on the history topic ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’. Next half term we will be focusing on the geography topic ‘Maps and Atlases’.
You can see our foundation report here which shows what we have learnt across the curriculum this term:
Children benefit from daily LEXIA interventions to promote rapid progress in both reading and spelling.
Weekly maths interventions are also in place to accelerate progress in maths.
Homework this half term:
You can support your child at home by reading with them at least 3 times a week. Please make sure you sign their diary every time they read to help us celebrate their achievements.
Your child will be getting spellings home to practise. These may be words we have been practising in class, or they may be spellings from the statutory spelling list for Year 3 from the National Curriculum. Your child will not have a spelling test every week, but they will be expected to show that they can use their spellings within their writing throughout the week.
Please help your child to learn the multiplication facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables. It is expected that by the end of Year 3 your child should be able to recall the facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 multiplication tables fluently.
Homework will be sent out on a Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school on a Tuesday.
