Welcome to Year 3!
We enjoy our learning with Mr Rhodes, Miss Sefton, Mrs Shiekh and Mrs Varley.
In Year 3 this term we are going to be learning about 'The Stone Age' and 'Volcanoes'. We have already found out about Stonehenge and created some fantastic art work that you will be able to see on our hall board from this Friday!
In Science, we are learning about Rocks and Soils. We have already found out about how sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks are formed through the medium of song!
In Literacy we will mostly be learning about fiction texts this half-term. Through these, we will teach several grammar rules: The use of 'a' or 'an', how to use conjunctions to extend sentences and using a range of punctuation. Spelling homework will continue to be set each Thursday. This will include a set of spellings that your child is learning. Also, look out for the 54 key spellings for Year 3 which will be stuck in the front of the homework book.
Maths homework will be set through the 'Maths with Parents' website for which you will receive a username and password soon. There will also be some paper based homework. All homework will come home on a Thursday and is due back by the next Tuesday. In Maths, your child should know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times table by the end of the year. This is a lot to learn so please support us in helping your child learn their tables.
This term we have been learning about deadly animals. However, we invited a non-deadly animal, Chester the dog, to come and visit us with Melody the vetinary nurse.
Melody talked to the children about responsible pet ownership and also showed X-rays and shared stories about life working in a vet's surgery.
