In Literacy we are currently reading The Twits by Roald Dahl, looking at playscripts and writing a short script of our own . After this, we will be learning about Biographies. In history we will be learning about our local area and hopefully we will be able to visit a museum. Whilst in Maths, we are focusing on place value, calculations and shape. This term will be a very sporty term, in P.E we will be concentrating on athletics and looking forward to sports day. Our value this term is co-operation.
Times tables challenge!
Each Friday your child will be given a times table challenge. If they can get them all right, they will receive a certificate. There are lots of challenges and lots of certificates to win! You can really help your child by pracitising their times tables at home.
Children in Year 3 will be given a piece of English or Maths homework each week. It will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
Spellings will be given out on a Monday and should be returned on a Friday. Children will be tested on Friday mornings. Please ensure that your child is learning their spellings.
Children should also read at least 3 times a week and have their reading record signed.
It is also important that times tables are tested regularly at home. We will be learning our eight times table this term as well as the weekly times table challenges.
Every week we have a spelling lesson in class and over the year we will cover various spelling rules. Please visit the spellings page below to see the spellings list for this term. We ask that parents spend some time helping their child to practise spellings at home.
