Welcome to YEAR 3!
Class Teacher = Miss Robinson
Learning Assistant = Mrs Emmons
We hope everyone had a restful and a relaxing half term break and enjoyed spending time with friends and family.
In English this half term, your children will be reading The Enormous Crocodile an African adventure of a greedy croc who thinks he is better than all the other animals he lives near. We will also be researching and writing about African animals to build on our non-fiction knowledge.
In Maths, we will focus on basic maths skills involving counting, times tables and the four operations of number. During our topic sessions, the children will be learning about the human skeleton, muscles and teeth.. We will also be researching and looking at the importance of staying healthy and having a varied balanced diet in our new "Brillaint Bodies" topic and we have some exciting activities planned.
PE is still an important lesson and we strongly encourage that the children have their Ghyllgrove PE kits so that they can join in with all the fun! Our PE kit is a white t-shirt with red shorts and trainers. Children with long hair must have their hair tied back and no jewellery can be worn during P.E. Please provide a black tracksuit for the colder months as their will be some lessons taking place outside.
If you have any questions please ask :)
Homework will be given out Friday and is due in on Tuesday. Year 3 teachers will be explaining each weeks focus.. Children will be given weekly spellings and are to continue with their times table learning, both of these can be found in their home/school diary.
We are using Times Table Rock Stars, a fantastic online resource, to develop our knowledge of multiplication and division facts. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging online programme designed to help pupils master their times tables by playing the different games and answering different questions to improve their Rock speed and status. Also, the children will earn coins for correctly answered questions which they can use to improve and upgrade their Rock Star Avatar. You can continue boosting your Rock score at home by practising your times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars. Just go to https://play.ttrockstars.com and use the login information inside your home school diary.
Look out for more information on the curriculum that we will be studying over the course of the year in order to support your child as much as possible.
