Autumn Term Topic:
This term our topic is 'Stone Age to Iron Age'. We will be learning about:
What should your child bring to school each day?
If your child brings a rucksack instead of a book bag, please make sure it is small as our cloakroom space is very limited.
School Uniform - All school uniform must be clearly labelled.
Homework Set on: Wednesdays
Reading regularly (ideally 4 times a week). This can be for around 15 minutes at a time. Record what they have read, which pages and a comment (using one of the reading prompts if possible).
You will have a list of 5 words to practice and learn each week. The spellings will be posted on the class homework page on the website. I will test you on these each Wednesday.
Times tables rock stars. I will give the children a login once we have had a go at practicing using the game in school. We will monitor their access to the site weekly.
Tuesdays and Thursdays (swimming).
Please wear PE kit to school on these days. Thursday is swimming to please also bring swimming kit.
The children will be taught to use the continuous cursive handwriting style. They will learn the correct formation of each letter in class.
This link shows animations for each letter, as taught in class:
The children will be exposed to a range of quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts in class. They need to read as often and as widely as possible at home.
Recommended reading lists for year 3:
Our class saint is St Therese of Lisieux. We will learn about her life and how we can be like her.
On your child’s birthday, we ask that they do not bring sweets for their friends, but if they would like to donate a book to the class for the book corner instead, then it would be greatly appreciated. They can also come to school in their own clothes on their birthday, or on the nearest school day if their birthday falls at the weekend.
