Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Hi Year 3,


It was great to see you last week. I was very impressed with your positive attitude and hard work! My name is Miss Edwards and I will be your teacher and Ms Catana will be our class TA. Our first topic this year is Natural Disasters.


This is our class page where you can find important information about what we have been learning and what is coming up in the next week. 


This term our PE sessions are on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit. Please remember to bring in a jumper and coat, especially as it gets colder. 


This is our curriculum map. It shows what we will be learning about this term.


Week Commencing 28th September 2020



This week Year 3 will continue to learn about narratives. They have been focusing on using expanded noun phrases to describe characters and settings. This week the class will be using their new knowledge to write parts of a story independently. The story they are focusing on is Escape From Pompeii. 



This week, Year 3 will be moving on to learning about adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. They will be using different resources and will be taking part in a variety of activities to support their learning.



This week our topic lessons will be Science. Last week the class learnt about states of matter. This week they will be moving on to learning about rocks and soil. They will be taking part in different exciting and interesting activities to learn key facts about rocks and soil.

The children will be learning week 4 of spellings this week. They will be tested on Friday. 











Maths homework will be handed in this week (Monday 28th September). The homework will be marked and new work will be set the following Monday (Monday 5th October).



If your child is on the RWI system, three new books will be sent home on Mondays. Please could you return the old books on Mondays ready for the new books to be sent home. If your child is a free reader then the children can read books from home. Please encourage your child to read daily (whether this is school books, books at home or both) and record this in their partnership book.
