Year 3

Teachers : Miss Thornton (3T), Mr Campbell / Mr Bennett (3B)

our topic is: 'hola'!

We will be exploring Europes largest country, Spain, in our fabulous topic ‘Hola’! From the coastal beaches to the work of Pablo Picasso, the children will be immersed in all the wonderful cultures that Spain has to offer.

english

In English the children will be creating a child friendly holiday brochure for Thomas Cook! They will be researching and exploring different aspects of Spain, such as the culture of the country and it’s people.

maths

In year 3, your child will develop their key mathematical skills through the ‘maths no problem’ scheme. We will be looking at understanding place value up to 1000, as well as many other exciting new challenges.

PE: Class 3T

3T will be doing PE on Monday and Tuesday. 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 Monday and Tuesday. 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
*Visit your local travel agents…show children where the fun begins
when booking holidays to other countries!

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.

Snack

We aim to teach the children about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. With this in mind, our fantastic chef provides a range of healthy snacks. Please pay £2.00 per week to the class teacher if you would like your child to receive a snack and drink.

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.
