Year 3 2023 - 2024
A Message from Mr Wilson
Happy New Year! Welcome back to school. I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing Christmas. We are ready to work hard again this half term. Mrs Forrest will continue to teach you on Tuesday mornings.
Our Christian value is: Respect
This half term we will be reading a brilliant book about a witch named Baby Yaga. We will focus on writing stories based on our own witches before writing an explanation about our own Baba Yaga traps.
Our current class read is The Witches by Roald Dahl.
- Length and Perimeter
- Multiplication and Division
You can help your child by:
- Supporting them with their homework tasks.
- Helping them to learn multiplication & division facts, such as x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and x8 (Year 3 target)
- Supporting them in accessing Times Table Rock Stars as much as possible. Children will bring home login details for this website/app. Teacher set times tables will appear in the ‘Garage’ section.
Our current topic is: The Stone Age
- The Stone Age in History
- Parts of a plant in Science
- E-mail in ICT
- Hinduism in RE
- Gymnastics in PE. PE lessons are Monday and Tuesday (Sports Coach). Please ensure children have their PE kit in school every day.
Homework will be a Topic Grid this half term and will be sent home in the children's homework books. Homework is to be completed by Wednesday 7th February. Thank you for your continued support with homework and spellings.
Spellings are set on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. There will be opportunities to practise the spelling rule in school, but the children would benefit from time spent practising at home too.
Please remind your child to bring their reading book into school every day. After sharing reading books at home, please sign reading records. The children will read at school once a week. The majority of the children’s reading should be done at home as the books in Year 3 can be very long. If children are not reading at home, they will not be able to progress through the reading levels.
