Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Week commencing 21st January 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

This week in maths, we have been writing and comparing numbers.  The children have been using the maths equipment to represent a given number.

 

 

In English we have been continuing with our book Jemmy Button, the children have been writing a diary entry about the day the visitors came to his country.  The book is based on a real character, why not ask your child to find out some information about the real Jemmy.

 

Homework this week is English, children are to complete pages 7 and 25 and return to school no later than Wednesday 30th January.  This work will consolidate our learning on fronted adverbials and past and present perfect tense.

 

In Gymnastics this week the children have been practising their balances.

Week commencing 14th January 2019

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

This week in maths we have been counting in steps of different sizes.  We have mainly focused on 4, 8, 50 and 100 using different contexts such as statistics and measurement to help us understand how this fits into our wider place in the world.  The children have also been using TT Rock Stars to help them become more fluent in recalling their multiplication tables.  A link to TT Rock Stars is below, should you need another copy of your child's login details please let me know.

 

 

In English the children have been using description and prediction to help develop an understanding of a character solely from the front cover of the book.  They have also been creating comparative and superlative adjectives by adding the suffixes -er or -est to an adjective.  Why not challenge them to see if they can create some for you.

 

Homework this week is maths.   Pages 14 and 15 are to be completed and returned to school no later than Wednesday 23rd January.  Homework not returned will be completed during Golden Time as per our positive behaviour policy.

The children have been doing some fantastic jump work in gymnastics this week.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

 I trust you had a much needed break over the Christmas period and have fully charged your batteries ready  for the Spring term.  This term our topic is 'My Place in the World'.  The children will be undertaking a historical study of the school to discover how it has changed over the years.  To that end if you have any old pictures or maps that you are willing to share with us we would be most grateful and will ensure that they are returned to you in one piece. 

 

This week in Maths the children have been continuing their work on shape and angles.  We spent some time in the school grounds trying to find different shapes, and angles within those shapes.  The children had lots of fun making angles using their own body parts.

 

In English we have started a new unit on how to write a biographical story.  The children were really enthused to write about the life of a Victorian school child.

 

Homework this week is English.  The children are to complete pages 12 and 37 and return to school no later than Wednesday 16th January.
