Class 3

Welcome to Year 3

Term 3 (Jan 2019)

 

I hope everyone had a great Christmas break and are raring to go now that we are in 2019. Our topic this term is the Stone Age where we will be looking at when this was, how the people lived and what they ate. We've already begun exploring Stone Age drawings and how these were undertook. You can find some images of children attempting this below.

 

In English our book is the Iron Man, where we will be writing a new chapter to the story and recounting the key events that occurred. Finally in Maths we will be exploring fractions, both through finding fractions of amounts, adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator and recognising how they are represented.

 

Our value this term is Perseverance.

PE

This term both our PE sessions are with Bristol Sport and we will be looking at Dance on Mondays and general fitness on Fridays. I would like to remind all pupils that PE kits need to be in school on all days as due to other commitments, these days can change.

 

Homework

The Homework schedule is staying the same. The framework of the homework sheet has changed slightly but should you have any questions please do ask. 
Can I encourage all parents to sign off their child's reading as it is very important. 

 

Help

Once again I would be very grateful if any parents or carers would be willing to give up a little bit of time each week to help with reading. Timing for this is very flexible and I cannot emphasise how helpful it is to developing children's reading. It would be greatly appreciated. If you can help, please do not hesitate to speak to me at the start or end of the school day.

 

Many thanks, 

Mr Ford

Remembrance Day

 

As part of the remembrance commemoration we created our own poppies for the service.

Term 2 (Nov 2018)

 

It's been a really great start to the year and I've seen some brilliant work regarding quests and castles. This term we are looking at the Tudors in History and Leon and the Place Between in English. Meanwhile in Maths we'll be examining and exploring multiplication and division. So start brushing up on those times tables!

 

Our value this term is TRUST.

PE

We are fortunate to still have future stars on a Thursday afternoon and they will be looking at Gymnastics. However, on a Wednesday we will continue to have Rugby so please make sure PE kits are in on both those days. 

 

Forest School

As we missed our last forest school session last week, we have re-booked it for the 19th of December. Please make sure they bring their wellies as I imagine it will be quite wet. 

 

Homework

The Homework schedule is staying the same.
Can I encourage all parents to sign off their child's reading as it is very important.

 

Help

We have been fortunate this year to have Mrs Chappell come in to help us out with reading with the children. This has been really beneficial and I would welcome any parents or carers who would be willing to give up even a little bit of time during the week to also come in and do some reading with the children. This can be as little as 30 mins and can have a major impact on their learning. It would be greatly appreciated by us all. If you are interested please do not hesitate to speak to me at the start or end of the school day.

 

Many thanks, 

Mr Ford

Welcome to Year 3 (Oct 2018)


I am delighted to welcome all our new Year 3 children into KS2 this term and look forward to a fun packed term ahead. Mr Ford will be covering in Year 3 for this term.

 

Our value for this term is Thankfulness.

 

Topic

Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is... Castles! We will be exploring the Norman invasion of Britain and the motte and bailey castles they created. This move onto looking at the stone castles that were created later on. 

 

PE

A Future Stars coach is coming in to give Year 3 coaching In Door Multiskills on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school for Thursdays and Fridays. 

 

Homework

Homework will be given out on Friday afternoons and is in for the following Wednesday. Please ask if you have 

any questions regarding the sheet and could I ask that all parents make sure they are signing off their child's reading each week.

 

Spelling

Spellings are also given out on a Friday afternoon and we will be having a weekly spelling test. This is in addition to the list spellings that they will need to practice throughout the year. 

 

Many thanks, 

Mr Ford

Pupils in Year 3 bring home weekly spellings which focus on the spelling rules and patterns in the National Curriculum. 

In addition, the NC includes a word list for each of the phases.  From the Year 3/4 words the easier words have been selected and made into 3 word lists which the pupils need to be able to spell by the end of the year, both in tests and in their everyday writing.  Most pupils will given a sheet with the lists on to begin learning list 1 at home.  Please encourage them to do this in a variety of ways. 

Thank you
