Why did the Romans invade Britain?
Welcome to Year 3
What an exciting week with the Maths Trail and dressing up in those fabulous outfits for our Numbers Day! So looking ahead at the final week of this half term, we will be completing our Roman topic.
The Year 3 Team
Over the last few weeks, we have been practising reading the time on an analogue and digital clock. Do please asking your children to practise telling the time to help them build confidence and understanding with this concept. Also keep up the great work on times tables.
In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! Each Wednesday, your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday.
Writing (We love writing!)
Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text.

BIG Write and the BIG Talk!
Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
