Miss Dearn (Team Leader)
Welcome to Year 3!
Why did the Romans invade Britain?
What a busy yet short week due to the snow! We hope you are having/have had an enjoyable time in the snow and managed to keep yourselves warm!
As our week was interrupted, we will test Year 3 on the suffix-ly spellings on Monday and hand out maths homework and new spellings then!
This week, we have loved having our additional maths lessons due to it being maths week! We measured and enjoyed fruit for our fruit salads (which meant all of the year 3 area smelt deliciously fruity!) and have learnt the Roman numerals up to 12.
We are really looking forward to our Roman Day on the new date of Tuesday 5th February and hope Year 3 are ready to march in to school to experience a fun filled day and hopefully amaze you all with their even wider knowledge of the Romans. They really have learnt so much already and are incredibly enthusiastic about this topic!
Please remember to bring reading diaries into school everyday and to write in your child's diary so we can see how much fab reading they are doing at home.
We look forward to our next fun week of learning!
The Year 3 Team.
We will be focusing on multiplication and division; any work at home on the value of numbers would be great!
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! On Wednesdays (fortnightly) 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. For the objectives that we will cover this year, please click on the link below:
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.
