Miss Dearn (Team Leader)
Welcome to Year 3!
Would you like to have lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age?
Christmas is near! Over the last week, we have began learning about instruction texts and tackled division in Maths!
We also had our very own Stone Age day where we dressed up as real Stone Age people and took part in very exciting activities! We made Stone Age paint out of charcoal and oil for our paintings, made prototypes of Stone Age homes and topped the day off with some hunting around the school! And finally, we danced the night away at our lovey school disco on Friday evening.
We look forward to what the next week brings!
The Year 3 Team.
We will be focusing on multiplication and division; any work at home on the value of numbers would be great!
In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! Each Wednesday, your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday.
Writing (We love writing!)
Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text. The objectives that we will cover this year, please click on the link below:
BIG Write and the BIG Talk!
Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
