Summer 2

 

        

Welcome back to the Summer Term Year 3! We hope you have all had a lovely half term and are raring to go! Just as it was last term, you can wear your PE kit on a Monday and Friday. Trainers can be worn every day as we will continue with our morning run. Hopefully, with the drier weather, we will be able to do our mile run on the field more often than we did last term.

 

Key Information

 

 

We will post all relevant information for Year 3 pupils on this page, however, if your child is not in school due to isolation/quarantine, please see our Year 3 Remote Learning Page. We will only be populating this page if we are made aware of any Year 3 children who are self-isolating.

P.E Days - Monday and Friday (children wear P.E kit to school)

Mile run - daily (children to wear or bring in trainers) 

Library day - Friday (children can take out 2 books - one to remain in school and one for home)

Spot/home reading books - children can change these as soon as they have completed the book.  Please try and listen to your child read at least 3 times a week as this will have a huge impact on the progress they make. Discussing the book will also help them to develop their understanding of the text they are reading.

Spellings - a hard copy is given to the children on Wednesdays. Spelling tests take place the following Tuesday. Any support you can provide in helping your child learn their spellings is greatly appreciated. We will also update their spellings on this page.

English 

 

 

                                      

 The text driver for this half term will be , 'The Boy Who Grew Dragons' by Andy Shepherd.

We will be using metaphors and similes to create our own dragon shape poems. We will also be composing a balanced argument and writing a diary entry about the day we met our own dragons.

Maths and TTRs

 

 

At the beginning of this half term, Year 3 will be focusing on time before moving onto mass and capacity and finally, shape. To help you have a better understanding of the Year 3 maths program, click here to view the White Rose Maths home-learning videos. These videos reflect the objectives we cover in Year 3 as well as the methods we use to teach them.

As well as the above areas, we will continue to consolidate the children's knowledge and understanding of the methods used in previous learning to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems.

In addition, we ask that you encourage your child to spend time each week on 'TT Rockstars' to ensure they improve their knowledge of the times tables and the speed in which they are able to recall them. 'Topmarks' is another free program which also helps in the learning of the times tables and many children enjoy using this program.

Stone Age Day 2020

As part of our Stone Age topic Year Three took part in our own Stone Age day where the the children had a go at traditional activities such as wattle and daub, flint knapping and stone carving. We searched for Neolithic artefacts in our own archaeological dig site and were told ancient stories by a professional storyteller. The children certainly looked the part and we all had great fun on the day.
