Welcome to summer term! We are excited to have Mrs Holder join us in Year 3. Please make sure that items of clothing have your child’s name on, particularly jumpers and cardigans which often come off in the hot weather! Also, please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school. This should be filled with water and can be filled up at school. Excitingly, we have a trip coming up in the summer term… Look out for a letter coming home soon!
This half term, we will be looking at the Romans in our topic. The children will be exploring all about how the Romans lived and how they have impacted our lives today.
In Science, we are looking at animals including humans! The children will be looking at the human body and its systems and comparing this to animals. They will also be looking at healthy eating and lifestyle.
Reading continues to be very important for all the children in Year 3. We would encourage you to try and read with your child as often as possible as this will assist in their reading ability. Children are rewarded for reading at home in class with smilies and golden time!
In English, we will be looking at various different styles of writing including leaflets, letters, poetry and narratives too.
In Maths, the focus will be on a variety of topics from data handling,
capacity and revision of written methods learnt over the year.
P.E will take place once a week:
3A & 3W will be doing P.E on Tuesday afternoons. This will be both inside and outside depending on the weather.
3A & 3W are also swimming for the whole of summer term on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct kit in school each Friday, including swimming hats for girls, so that all children can take part.
There will be no forest school in Year 3 this term.
Please make sure the children have the correct P.E in school all week. This is really important and means the children can take part fully. We will remind the children about their swimming kits the day before.
Maths and English homework will be sent home on a Friday. Please could you make sure the homework is back in school and completed by the following Wednesday. The children will be given opportunity to complete their homework in school on a Tuesday breaktime if needed. Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and the children will be tested on their spellings every Friday so please encourage your children to practise the spellings as often as possible across the week.
If you have any queries or concerns then please come in to speak to us. Mornings can sometimes be very busy but we are more than happy to meet with you after school. Please note that Wednesdays are best avoided as we have staff meetings.
We look forward to working alongside you this term.
Mrs Preece, Mrs Holder and Mrs Smith.
