Year 3

Welcome to Year 3-Spring Term

Miss Iveson & Mrs Capper

 

This term our topic will be Will George ever be the king of England? During this half term we will be finding out about the Monarchy, learning about family trees and carrying out research about the Royal family both past and present. We will create fact files and biographies about important people in British History including our current Queen, Elizabeth and Henry VIII.

In Maths, we will be looking at statitistics and different ways to represent and interpret data. We will be investigating length, making connections with various measurements then look at calculating perimeter. Towards the end of this half term we will be moving on to focus on fractions.

In English, our Power of Reading text for this half term will be Firebird, about a prince who has to go on a quest.

 As part of our theme, children will be writing biographies and information texts. Daily guided reading sessions will take place and these will focus on comprehension skills, fluency and developing reading for pleasure. Also, handwriting and spellings will be visited daily in order consolidate and develop further skills.

Please encourage your child to read things other than just their school reading book- books, magazines, articles online- anything! We have done a lot of work about enjoying reading and reading because you enjoy it in class and hope this is evident at home. This doesn’t just mean the children reading on their own- we have a class reader which either Mrs Capper or I read aloud to our class and the children love it so if there is opportunity for bedtime reading I’m sure all Year 3 children would love that too! 

PE is every Thursday so please make sure that P.E. kits including footwear (trainers or pumps) and that they are in school at all times. Reading books are expected in every day. We ask that our children practice their times tables and read their reading books every night. This term is going to be a great one with lots of exciting things to do and learn!

 Miss Briers will teach Y3 on a Monday morning.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 3 teaching team. 

Thank you for your continued support.
