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 Wednesdays.  Please ensure your child has suitable kit, including a supportive pair of trainers and separate PE socks.

 

English

We will be reading ‘Zeraffa Giraffa’ by Dianne Hofmeyr. Our outcome will be to write a persuasive guide for visiting Zeraffa at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. We will be doing this by using the present and past tenses correctly and consistently including the progressive form and the present perfect form. We will also include persuasive language and write in the 2nd and 3rd person.  

By using everything we have learned so far in Year 3 appropriately we will be able to embellish our writing and build a varied and rich vocabulary.

Homework

Homework will be given out on Mondays to be completed and returned by Friday. There will be online maths homework and grammar homework to be completed in your child’s homework book. Your child will also have spellings and reading to complete each week.

Your  child is encouraged to also access TTRockstars to practise their multiplication and division facts, which are crucial to enhance their understanding across the maths curriculum.

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.
