We hope that the children are enjoying their first week in Year 3. Getting to know them all has been great!
Our history topic this term is ‘Ancient Egypt’ and we will be learning lots of interesting facts. We are looking forward to visiting the British Museum on Thursday 10th October where we will be able to interact with real life artefacts and mummies. Letters to follow soon.
Our Science topic this term is ‘Rocks’. We will be looking at how rocks are formed, what they are used for and how they change over time.
We have started our Maths learning with place value, recognising what each digit represents and ordering numbers to 1000. Please practice timetables with your child (2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10) Use TT Rockstars as there will be activities and competitions for you to do at home!
We have started our English learning off with Poetry and the children have enjoyed exploring a range of poems by Roger McGough. Ask your child which one is their favourite! English will also include the story ‘There’s a Pharaoh in our bath’ by Jeremy Strong and we will be writing stories around this as well as writing instructions on how to mummify a Pharaoh. Beware, it is gruesome!
Please ensure you practice spellings with your child as they will be tested on these every Thursday. We will also be checking reading records, so please read a minimum of 4 times a week. This will be checked every Monday. Please make sure you sign the reading record every time they read.
PE is on a Wednesday so please ensure you come in with a clean kit.
Home learning needs to be completed weekly in the home learning books and given in on a Thursday.
As always we value helpers with reading, so please let a member of staff know if you are willing to help!
