I hope you had a lovely and much needed rest over the Summer holidays. The term ahead is already filling up with many exciting things, including a school trip to Kents Cavern for our topic of ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’. This letter should inform you on how things go in Year 3.
The year 3 team consists of myself and Mrs Scampton. Mrs Fullick also teaches the class on a Monday afternoon.
This half term our learning will focus around the theme of ‘The Stone Age’ Please find attached a curriculum overview which shows you what we will be covering in our learning. This can also be viewed on our Year 3 page on the school website.
PE will take place on Mondays and Thursdays. We will be doing Gymnastics and PE skills. Please make sure your child has a PE kit for this.
Year 3 are expected to complete a MyMaths task, practice spellings and read as close to 5 times as possible. Please find spellings and all logins required attached. For those who enjoy a challenge and being creative, we also have a class chart where if children complete extra homework related to the current topic (of their choice), they may mark next to their name. If they complete 5 extra pieces of home learning, then they will receive a certificate. I will also be awarding a prize for the child who creates the most.
Please continue to listen to your child read regularly and record this in their reading diary. The children should be reading to someone every day for 5 – 10 minutes. It is important that they have the opportunity to talk about the book that they are reading.
We are keen to hear from anybody who has some spare time to hear children read during the school day. This can be for as little as 10 minutes at the start of the school day. Any time you have to offer is always greatly appreciated.
Please note that every Friday I will be holding a Reading Raffle where any children who have read at least 3 times a week will receive a raffle ticket. I will then draw 2 tickets and those lucky children with the matching numbers will get to pick a book of their choice as their prize.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me. Additionally, I can be emailed at email@example.com or you can send me a message on the Class Dojo.
