Welcome to Class 3!

 

Literacy

This half term in English, we will be beginning a new unit on instructional writing. The children will be exploring the features of instructions and will be writing their very own for the process of Mummification which links with our topic of Ancient Egypt. We will also be looking at traditional fairytales and letter writing.

Numeracy

In Maths, all children in Year 3 have been practicing number and place value and will be developing new skills in line with the Park Road Calculation Policy. I have been blown away by the effort the children are putting into their maths lessons and they are all making very good progress. Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Geometry, measurement and Statistics are our main areas of study this term.

Topic

This term the children will learn about Ancient Egypt in topic and it will have a history focus. Children will learn about the Pharaohs and understand the importance of the River Nile to Ancient Egyptians. They will have an appreciation of the process of embalmment and know that the Ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics as a means of writing/communication.’

PE

PE is on a Wednesday. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit. Please make sure anybody who wears earrings that you take them out on PE days.  Thank you.

Year 3 go swimming on a Tuesday afternoon so please make sure your child brings their swimming kit with them.

Homework

Spellings will be given out on a Thursday ready for our spelling test on Tuesday. Children are encouraged to change their home reading book on a Thursday. It is important to be reading regularly for ten minutes a day with your child so that they are achieving age – related expectations. Please ensure your child brings back their home reading book on a Thursday and that you fill out their reading record.
