Year 3 News

Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely half term and ready for our last half term in year 3?

To kick off our exciting half term we went to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to watch the Royal Ballet company perform Swan Lake. The children had an excellent day and thoroughly enjoyed watching the talented dancers.

 

 

This half term in Geography we will be exploring California and learning about extreme weather.

In Maths we have been looking at fractions and are going to be moving onto multiplication and division. Please make sure you are practising your timetables at home as this will really help!

In English we will be reading a brand new book called ‘To the edge of the world’ by Julie Green. We will be creating a morale story and a newspaper report.

Please continue to read at home at least 4 times a week and practise spellings too!

Year 3 and 4 are taking part in a inter-house timetables challenge. Year 3’s will be competing on Tuesday 26th June 2018. Please encourage your child to practise at home using the website TT rock stars,  https://ttrockstars.com/. The children can earn house points, Trott house are leading at the moment!

We thank you for your continued support

Year 3 and 4 rock!

All pupils in year 3 and year 4 are currently taking part in an inter-house times table challenge.

Before half term, each pupil received their log-in for the TTRockstars website. The site is accessible from home and from school and the more a pupil plays, the more points they win for themselves and for their House (and the more they improve their recall of valuable times table facts!).

Trott House are the clear leaders at the moment so well done to them. Everyone in Ennis, Farah and Whitlock House needs to get playing to catch the leaders!

This challenge continues until the end of the month when winners will be announced. There will also be a one-off inter-house tournament at the end of June.

If you have mislaid your log-in letter, try your Mymaths user name and password as this should work. If not, see your class teacher.

Year 3 this half term

Nov
21

Our half term has kicked off with lots of learning!

Firstly, thank you for your donations for Children in Need. The children enjoyed wearing their pyjamas in school for a good cause!

We have started our R.E topic ‘Sources of Wisdom’ where we have been learning about the values in Bible stories, people that have shown wisdom in Christianity and comparing that with the Islamic faith. Children are given the opportunity to discuss ‘Sources of Wisdom’ in their own lives.

Maths
In Maths we are continuing to focus on place value and using this to help us with mental addition and subtraction through regrouping. We do this through the use of lots of different resources such as Dienes, money, tens frames and place value counters. Times tables will continue to be tested every Thursday.

English
In English we are building on our reading skills through the class text ‘There’s a Pharaoh in our bath!’ Please continue to develop the skill of inference with your child by asking them to use the clues in their home reading books to answer questions. We find building on vocabulary really helps with their understanding of books. A friendly reminder to read at home every night and ensure you and your child records this.

Spellings
Spellings will continue to be tested every Thursday. We have been teaching the children a variety of ways to practice these so please ask your child to show you. Soon we will be recapping on spellings sent home at the beginning of the year.

Can we also ensure that the children have their PE kits in school every Tuesday and a coat now that the weather is getting colder.

We are really excited for the rest of the year! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support!

Mrs Barton, Mrs Bolden and the Year 3 team.
