Welcome to our Year 3 Class page. 

This page will be updated every half term to help to keep you up to date with the topics we will be working on in class. 

There will also be a copy of my long term plan for the year and each half term's medium term plan as we get to it. 

I will post helpful websites to support our learning and a copy of the spellings for the half term. 

Enjoy using our class page! 

HELPFUL HINTS

The children can bring a bookbag to school to put in their homework, snack, reading diary and reading book. NO RUCKSACKS PLEASE.

If children want to bring in a water bottle, it must be named and only contain water. It will come home every night to be washed and refilled.

PE

Children will need their PE kits in school on Thursdays.  Please ensure your child has suitable kit, including a supportive pair of trainers and separate PE socks.

 

English

We will be reading ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Angela McAllister. Our outcome will be to write story from a different point of view. We will be doing this by using nouns with a range of prefixes, using the present and past tense correctly and using inverted commas to punctuate direct speech.

By choosing prefixes appropriately we will be able to embellish our writing and build a varied and rich vocabulary.

Spelling

Here you will find spelling lists for each half term.  It is important that your child spends time each week practising these at home to consolidate and reinforce their learning at school.  Some useful spellings strategies are included on each half term's spelling overview to support learning at home.  Each Friday, children are given a spelling test to assess their understanding of the spelling patterns focused on that week and identify targets for further development.
