Welcome to Year 3

Learning
Literacy
Throughout this year we will be focusing on English Grammar, Punctuation and Spellings using both the ‘No Nonsense Scheme and Read, Write Inc which will provide our pupils with tailored opportunities to learn and practise these skills. In Maths we will be using ‘White Rose Hub’ to ensure all areas of Maths are covered and we are encouraging all children to learn the times tables.
Topics
In the Autumn term we are learning  about Stone Age to the Iron Age, building an understanding of how people and animals survived. In Spring we find out about the Volcanoes; comparing how things move on different surfaces and noticing the forces needed between two objects. In Summer we explore different artists with a focus on plants, comparing different art techniques and then making our own unique pieces!
Science
The Year 3 Science topics will expand children knowledge and encourage them to explore further. We learn about Humans & Light, Rocks & Forces and Magnets & Plants.
 
Home-learning
You can help your child by sending them with their book bag each day.
Reading
Please sign your child’s reading record when you have read with them. We check and stamp reading records every Tuesday and Thursday, for every full book of stamps, children will receive a reward.
Parents and Carers are welcome to join us in class with our Reading Breakfast every Tuesday morning at 8.45am until 9am.
Learning
Home learning is set every Friday. We check all learning logs every Wednesday, so please return them to school by then. 
Spellings
Your child will be sent home with new spellings every Monday and tested in school the following Monday. 
 
PE
Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, labelled and in a PE bag. Our school PE uniform is black joggers/leggings/shorts with a white t-shirt, a black zip up top maybe worn if cold and sensible footwear. We advise bringing it into class on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday, as we have PE twice a week. During the winter months please ensure clothing is warm due to weather and being outdoors. All jewellery; including earrings, hair bands and clips have to be removed for safety reason.
