Year 3

Teachers : Miss Thornton (3T), Mr Campbell / Mr Bennett (3B)
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Wall

our topic is:  Remarkable Romans!

The Curriculum- This half term we will be having an amazing time learning all about Roman life. We will kick start the topic with an exciting drama workshop that will lead us right into the Roman army. There will be many historical topic lessons that will explore the ancient city of Rome as well as different cultural aspects and artefacts. We will have some great art and DT lessons to show the more creative side of Roman life.

english

English: In English the children will be writing a variety of different texts that are all designed to inform people of Roman life. We will be placing all of our learning and information into a time box in order to help our Roman friend in need!

maths

Maths: In year 3 your child will develop their key mathematical skills through the maths no problem scheme. We will continue to explore multiplication and division, as well as moving on to measure.

PE: Class 3T

3T will be doing PE on Tuesday and Friday. Please could you ensure that you child has their PE kit with them on these days. It would be extremely useful if children could bring in a pair of gym pumps and a pair of trainers. During the cold weather, please provide warm clothing for lessons outside.

PE: Class 3B

3B will be doing PE on Tuesday and Friday. Please could you ensure that you child has their PE kit with them on these days. It would be extremely useful if children could bring in a pair of gym pumps and a pair of trainers. During the cold weather, please provide warm clothing for lessons outside.

Learning Diaries and Keeping in Touch

Your child will be expected to still record their homework, spellings and reading in their diary. This is a fantastic resource for the children to use, but also key for parent and teacher communication. Please continue to read with your child, at least 3 times per week and record this in their diary with further comments.

homework

We will be continuing with our homework system throughout the autumn term. The homework is based around the current topic ‘Hola’! and there are a number of different activities that the children can chose to do. They can chose activities depending on their interest and what they enjoy doing. Please ensure your child completes one piece of homework from the grid, every week. Children should also complete challenges on ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ at home too.

Supporting your child at home

*Listen to them read regularly
*Go on Times Table Rock Stars
*Download educational apps
*Check and learn key words

*Visit your local food stores…show children where the fruit and veg sections are!
*Cook some healthy dishes to share with the family! There are great recipes online.
*Do some research about the human body functions…explore organs, teeth and senses! 

Attendance and Punctuality

Good attendance and punctuality is essential to help your child achieve the best they possibly can.
Every week the attendance cup is awarded to the class with the best attendance – hopefully our class can win the cup lots of times this coming term!
We will also be awarded points in the Punctuality League. Let’s see if we can beat last year’s score.   

Stamps

Children can achieve reward stamps for trying hard with their work! Every time they collect 50 stamps, they are awarded with a certificate.

Uniform and Jewellery:

Please ensure children wear the correct school uniform, including black shoes and plain socks. Jewellery must not be worn. Please label all items so that they can be easily reacquainted with children if they are mislaid. This includes the inside of coats, shoes, hats, gloves and scarves.
