Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is an exciting and challenging year full of learning and fun.
Year 3 Staff
Miss Werrett is our teacher and Miss Carey is our teaching assistant. We hope you enjoy looking through what we have been learning this year!
Mrs Spence is our class governor.
Please look at our Year 3 Long Term Overview 20-21 to find out what we will be learning about this year.
You can find our more about our learning by visiting the Curriculum section of our website.
Our homework policy now focuses on spellings, times tables and reading. Spellings will now be given out at the beginning of each half term but the children will be tested on a different rule/pattern each Friday. A chosen times table will be tested each Friday; this will be indicated on the half termly spelling sheet.
Please continue to listen to your child read or ensure they are reading independently at least three times a week and sign their reading record.
In Key Stage 2 we complete whole class guided reading sessions several times a week so all children have a chance to read aloud. They can explore a range of texts as a class and build confidence in public speaking.
PE in Class 3 is on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Please can the children come to school in their PE kits on those days, they do not need a change of clothes.
Children can enter school from 8:30am until 9:00am on a morning. The school day ends at 3:00pm. Children will be on the yard ready to be collected at this time. Please line up on the yellow lines behind your child’s Year group number.
Science: In science this year, the children will be learning more about animals including humans and will be given the opportunity to look at food groups, nutrition, skeletons, muscles and will carry out investigations.
French: Year 3 marks the start of French lessons in KS2. The children will start off learning about basic pronunciation as well as learning simple greetings.
Topic: In history, the children will look in depth about daily lives in Ancient Egypt. This will have links to art where the children will create 3D masks. In geography, the children will learn more about the United Kingdom.
PSHE: At the beginning of the term, PSHE will focus on mental health and well being upon returning to school. We will discuss emotions and resilience as a result of setbacks through class discussions and activities.
RE: In the Domestic Church topic, the children will be discussing the importance of homes. They will consider how God wants us to love each other and reflect the Christian values in our own lives.
Music: The children this term will be listening to songs but will be unable to sing. As a result, they will perform a song using sign language to help them to develop their performance skills.
