Year 3 pupils…
We hope you had a Happy Easter and welcome back!
Our theme this term is the Iron Age Celts. We will consider these peoples’ stunning art, myth and religion and their secrets of metallurgy. A letter has been emailed out regarding our class trip, to ‘the World of Stonehenge’ exhibition at the British Museum, on 17th May. Please let the office know if you require a hard copy of this letter. In science, our topic is plants. We will explore what a plant needs to grow, how water moves through a plant, the life cycle of a flowering plant and seed dispersal.
PE lessons take place on Mondays (athletics) and Wednesdays (cricket). Please ensure that your child has their kit in school on these days.
A homework sheet goes home on Mondays, due in the following Monday. One side is grammar-based and the other maths. This work is extra practice at something we have already covered in class the same week. If your child has any difficulty remembering a method or vocabulary please do let me know – feedback is valuable and I can recap to ensure understanding. We mark homework in class on a Monday afternoon.
In maths, we are recapping pictograms and bar charts and then moving on to fractions. Instant recall of times tables facts is invaluable for fractions. Any practice the children can do on the website Times Tables Rock Stars will be of benefit. A note of your child’s login is stuck inside the cover of the spelling books. There is a 3-minute test several times a week in class.
There is an expectation that pupils read a colour scheme book at least three times per week, if possible to an adult, and change their scheme book at least once per week. Many thanks for your support with this extra practice which helps to embed the learning in the children’s long term memory.
We would like to invite you to watch our class assembly on Wednesday 4th May at 9:00am. The assembly lasts for about half an hour.
Mrs Thomas, Mrs Sutton, Mrs McCready and Mrs Forbes
