Hello and welcome to Year Three!
Class Teacher: Miss Riddell
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Yorke
Our topics this term are 'The Rainforest and Chocolate'.
During this term, the children will be learning lots of facts and information about 'Rainforest and Chocolate'. We'll be learning about the journey of the cocoa bean, from bean to bar and also discovering the weird and wonderful creatures and plants that live in the Rainforests around the world.
In RE the children will be learning about Symbols and Religious expression.
The children will also have daily Maths lessons and also ten minutes ‘Quick Maths’ games and activities every day. The focus is on developing basic skills and problem solving through various Mathematical topics. We will also continue to use 'Talk for Writing' to learn texts and use the structure and language to write our own amazing stories! Another main focus is the times tables. Year 3 are very excited to persevere with their journey around the world in their Times Table Travels.
Home Learning Expectations and Routines
Home Learning will be sent home on a Friday and will be expected back by the following Thursday– there will be a booklet of activities to be completed for your child to choose from over the term. Please complete 1 activity each week. Any home learning not brought back, will be completed in your child's 'Golden Time' on Friday afternoon. If you have any problems with your child's home learning, please let us know.
Spelling Home Learning will go out on a Friday and the children are tested on the following Friday.
Your child will bring home a book to enjoy as a shared read. Please support your child in reading this book together at least twice per week.
Please could you sign their Reading Diary to say they’ve read with you. This will ensure they move up the ‘Up, Up and Away Reading’ board. The children will be encouraged to ensure their reading book has been seen by the teacher and will be expected to become more independent in Year 3 and change their books regularly themselves.
Indoor PE is on a Monday and outdoor PE is on a Thursday Please try to make sure your child is able to take part safely and comfortably, by having an appropriate kit for the weather.
