Miss Dearn (Team Leader)
Welcome to Year 3
What a fabulous week it has been leading up to half term! We've had lots of fun learning about how to create persuasive adverts and writing our own in English!
We also moved our topic country to South Africa! We learnt all about the wonderful meanings behind the colours of the South African flag and used our comparison skills to look at the country's beautiful landscapes!
Having done so much hard work this term, our lovely Year 3's have definitely earned themselves a relaxing half term! We hope you all thoroughly enjoy it with family and friends. We look forward to seeing you after half term!
PLEASE NOTE: Details of homework for half term can be found below, under 'Homework & Spellings'.
The Year 3 Team.
For half term, children have all received comprehension, spelling and Maths homework! For spellings, children need to revise the highlighted spelling words which are the Year 3 spelling words. For Maths, children either have a Maths homework sheet or a small slip explaining what they need to revise over half term!
We will be focusing on addition and subtraction; 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.
