Welcome to YEAR 3!
In English this term, your children will be reading Jake Cake and the werewolf teacher by Michael Broad along with lots of other different reading materials for their fluency and guided reading lessons.
In Maths, we will focus on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods. Both mental and written! As well as their times tables and fractions.
During our topic sessions, the children will be learning about plants and the different methods of farming. They will also learn about food miles and how the food travels from the field to our forks in our "Green Fingers" topic.
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. During the winter months, children will also need a plain black tracksuit as their lessons will occasionally be held outside. Children with long hair must have their hair tied back and no jewellery can be worn during P.E. Our P.E days are now on Thursday's and Friday's.
If you have any questions please ask :)
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. On Google classroom each week you will find the children's homework that will become live to view on a Friday afternoon and will need to be uploaded for return by Tuesday morning.
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.
