Welcome to Year Three
Strap yourselves in as we have an action-packed half term up ahead! The children need to use all of their ‘Building Learning Powers’ as they begin their exciting journey in Year Three.
Class text- This half term, the children will be reading ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’. It’s a cracking story filled with action, adventure and brilliant characters! Warning- your child may begin wandering around in your wardrobe!
Topic- Our topic this half term is incredibly exciting. It’s called ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!’ For more details, see the curriculum overview. The children shall be venturing to ‘Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre’ in order to brush up on their climbing and tunnelling as they become mountain explorers. Mountains can be dangerous; therefore it’s important that the children also learn survival skills. Mr. Ryan, paramedic extraordinaire, has kindly agreed to teach the children about mountain rescue and first aid.
Maths- In maths this half term, the children will be learning about:
-Place Value (Numbers to 1000)
-Addition and Subtraction
Home Learning- We will be setting home learning via the school website as it more environmentally friendly and a more efficient way of communicating. Your child will be required to:
-learn five spellings (taken from the statutory framework) each week ready to be tested on Friday
-times tables each week ready to be tested on Friday
-learn the model text which will help your child with their writing.
Home learning can have a significant impact on your child’s progress; therefore we advise that you frequently check the website for information.
Physical Education- PE in Year Three is taught on a Friday. As British weather can be unpredictable, we advise that your child has their PE kit in every day.
