During the autumn term, as part of their transition from KS1 to KS2, Year 3 are encouraged to build on their independence and social skills through a variety of group, guided and independent tasks. It is important that they are supported and encouraged in making good choices.
The main topic in the autumn term will be a study of the changes in Britain during the Stone Age. Year 3 will also be investigating light and shadows, rocks and fossils in science. Children will investigate biomes and climate, with a focus on Peru. They will be learning about research skills, e-safety and control software in computing. In addition, they will be finding out about the significance of symbols in RE. In the autumn term. They will also undertake a field-trip to Butser Ancient Farm in the autumn term! In addition, the Year 3 residential trip to Minstead Study Centre takes place in the autumn term!
Please encourage the children to make the most of home learning time by helping them practise spellings and improve their times tables.
Children have all been given a personal reading record. Please continue to support their reading development by ensuring that they read daily and fill in their personal reading record. These will be collected in on Tuesday – please ensure they are brought in to school daily.
Home learning tasks will be given out on a Wednesday and are due in the following Tuesday.
During the Autumn term, PE lessons will be on Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on these days – we recommend that they leave their PE kit in school so it is available each day.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Mr Wilson, Mrs Babbage, Ms Jones and Mrs Mackie
