Year 3 2018 - 2019
Year 3 teacher
Welcome to Year 3!
A very happy new year to you all! I hope that you have all enjoyed the Christmas holidays and are looking forward to a brand new term of learning. I know that I am!
Power English and Maths
During our first half-term this Spring, we will be studying a range of texts in our Power English lessons in order to produce a range of written outcomes. In Power 6, we will be continuing with our fiction text in English, as I'm sure you're aware, we were studying Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning (which is a personal favourite of mine)! We will then be looking at two non-fiction texts: an instrution text entitled Until I met Dudley and an explanation text about lightning. In our final week of our Power English cycle we will be studying a poem. In Power 5 maths, we will be continuing our learning related to multiplication and division.
Science and Topic
In our afternoons together, Year 3 and I will be exploring a unit of work based on rocks in science and in topic, we are trying to determine who first lived in Britain, so a lot of our learning will be very much focussed around the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages (prehistory).
In our computing, the children will be looking at a unit called Dancing Robots.
In our RE lessons this term we will be looking at two units. During the first unit, we will be thinking about whether Jesus could heal people and whether his healings were miracles or a result of something else. In our second unit, we will be looking at what is 'good' about Good Friday.
The core theme for our PSCHE lessons this term is relationships. Throughout the term, we will be looking at healthy relationships, feelings and emotions and valuing difference.
Uniform / PE Kit
Please can you ensure that your child's unifrom is clearly labelled with their name. PE kits could also be labelled and need to be in school each Monday as we have an hour of dance each Monday and Thursday afternoon. Please can you ensure the children have indoor and outdoor kits. PE kits can remain in school for the full half term.
Dinner and Snack Monies
If you pay for your child's school dinners, please remember to put their dinner money in an envelope that has been clearly labelled with their name and the amount inside. Additionally, the children should be bringing snack money intoina small purse or wallet or if they'd prefer, an envelope with their name on. The children are responsible for managing their own snack money.
Homework for Power English and Maths groups will be given on a Wednesday and is to be completed and handed in by the following Monday. The children will also have a homework quest to complete, but this will be ongoing and isn't expected to be handed in until towards the end of the Spring term. Further information regarding this will be given to the children in due course.
I appreciate that this year will be a huge change and a significant challenge for the children as they leave Key Stage 1 in order to continue their learning journies in Key Stage 2, but I am confident that they will adapt and grow, especially in terms of independence. The children have already started to take responsibility for their own learning and that of their classmates and this is is something that we will continue to work on throughout the year. Please remind your children that their books bags, reading books, PE kit, snack money, uniform and letters are their responsibility and therefore they need to look after them.
If you have any questions regarding your child's learning then please feel free to come and speak with me! I am available at the beginning and at the end of the school day to answer any minor questions. If you feel you need a longer meeting please don't hesistate to contact school.
Thank you for your continued support,
