Welcome to Year 3!
In year 3 this year is Miss Jennings and Ms Catana.
In Year 3 this term our topic will be How To Train Your Dragon! We will be learning all about The Vikings and also looking at the movie and book too. We are very excited to be guiding your children through their learning journey, and look forward to hearing and developing their fantastic knowledge and ideas!
We had an amazing 3 days introducing ourselves to The Vikings and finding out more about how they lived and worked. We loved our trip to Ufton Court and enjoyed looking at artefacts, raiding the Saxons and voyaging to lots of different countries! We are looking forward to exploring more about The Vikings in the coming weeks.
Some key dates for your diary:
The reading challenge will commence again this term, so please ensure that partnership books are up to date. To complete the reading challenge you need to read at home 4 times a week for ten weeks in order to earn the badge at the end of term.
We will be developing our knowledge of place value this week. We will be continuing to explore three digit numbers and will be looking at mentally adding ten and hundreds to these numbers.
This week we will be continuing to look at the genre of fact files. We will plan and research information about the Viking raids, ready to create another of our own Viking fact files. Then we will be practising our neatest writing and copying up our hard work for display.
We will be linking our reading to our writing and continue to study fact files. We will be focussing on withdrawing information from texts and forming answers with lots of detail in them.
Jacob and Eleanor
Rollover! We will see next week who has accumulated the most points!
