Welcome to Year 3
I would like welcome you all to year 3 and the start of a new school year! We have many exciting topics and experiences in store over the coming year and I am excited to get our learning under way. As a part of our Global Neighbours topic we will be learning about rivers and strapping on our wellies to visit our local river.
This year we are continuing our curriculum focus with three new main topics: Global Neighbours , Mysteries and Fascinate.
Throughout the year we will continue to develop our writing and we will be reading a fantastic range of books this year including Ice Palace, the Iron Man and Mr Clee’s personal favourite, Krindlekrax.
In maths, the children will initially work on building their understanding of place value. They will then move on to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Later in the year the children will learn about fractions, measures and shapes. Throughout the year we will practise out times tables regularly and aim to be confident at our 3, 4 and 8 times tables by the end of the year.
The children will have PE every Wednesday afternoon and will need to wear their PE kit to school on that day. The children will have the opportunity to change their reading books every afternoon and their reading records will be checked every Monday for their 4 reads.
I am very excited to be able to see the class grow in confidence this year and following them on their journey. Thank you for all your support and you support in the future.
