Welcome everybody to the Year 3 section of the website.
Mr Lancaster, Mr Willett and Mrs Bell
If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask one of the Year 3 team.
If your child is at home self-isolating, work will be provided via Seesaw for your child to complete. This will replicate the work being covered in class. Please check Seesaw daily for updates and tasks set.
Reading at home
Children will be given reading books on Monday which they will have for the full week. Children will need to bring their reading books back on a Friday so that they can be quarantined over the weekend. Your child will then be given new reading books the following Monday.
We appreciate that it is not always possible to read every night with your child, but do ask that you make every effort to read at least 5 times per week with them, and make a comment in their reading records.
Reading at home doesn’t always mean their school reading books, it could be anything from a newspaper, magazine, kindle books to instructions of a board game.
Please follow the link below to access EPIC which is an online book library.
Homework will be given out every Friday with the hand-in date the following Friday. Please support your child to be as creative as they can!
Our P.E days are Thursday and Friday.
Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their full P.E kit on P.E days. Children will not be getting changed into their P.E kit during school time.
PE kit consists of: a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps. Children may wear black jogging pants and a jumper in the colder months if they go outside.
Due to the limited space we have in the cloakroom in our classroom, please can children refrain from bringing in large rucksacks/handbags. They are too big for the pegs and children cannot hang their coats up properly. Instead, we encourage them to bring the green school reading book bags to put their belongings in. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
Water bottles & snacks
Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day - it is important for the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.
In Maths this term we will continue to focus on further multiplication and division where we will be multiplying and dividing two digit numbers by one digit numbers. We will then move onto fractions where we will cover a wide range of skills, including:
This half term we will explore the novel 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman. We will use this text to explore a range of different text types and develop our understanding of different grammatical features.
Geography - 'Deserts - Hot and Cold'
In this topic we will explore deserts around the world. First we will explore what a desert is, are they always hot and sandy or is there another explanation for what makes a desert? We will then look at where we can find them around the world, what are the different deserts and what climate they have.
History - 'Egyptians'
In this topic we will explore the wonderful world of Ancient Egypt! We will be looking at the lives of Ancient Egyptians and how it compares to Modern Egypt. We will also look at hieroglyphics and begin to explore how the Egyptians recorded their history. Finally, we will look at different artefacts and use our historical skills to understand what they can teach us about life in Ancient Egypt.
Design and Technology - 'Shelters'
In Shelters we will research different shelters to find out the different parts and their functions. We will use the knowledge gained to design and test our own structures to make sure they are fit for a purpose.
R.E - 'Jesus - The Man Who Changed Lives'
During this topic we will explore Jesus and how he changed and continues to change the lives of Christians around the world through his life and the lessons he taught us.
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
