Year 3

With Miss McKee & Mrs Sleigh

back to school. color pencils

Hello Year 3s!
Welcome to our class page.

Welcome back everyone. We hope you've all had a lovely half term week.

In our English work we will be practising all of our writing skills and working on reading Aesop's Fables, especially "The Hare and the Tortoise". We will be looking at the structure and the features of FABLES so that we can create our own. Later we will also be looking at poetry. We love to read in the Juniors and we will be using MyON online reading at home as well as sending home reading books. This half term we will also be choosing our own library books each week to share with an adult at home.

In Maths, we will be working on accuracy in addition and subtraction skills. We will also be working with larger numbers and using our place value skills to help us.

Our Science work will be all about FORCES and MAGNETS and we will be investigating their properties. We will be continuing to learn new words and phrases in Spanish and work on our pronunciation. Our Geography and DT work links to Spain. On Friday 5th December we will be having a Spanish Day. We will do lots of fun, Spanish themed activities, including making a Spanish omelette. On that day you can come wearing the colours of the Spanish flag if you want to.

Our PE day is on TUESDAY. Please remember to come to school in your PE kit. Our PE uniform is white t-shirt, black jogging bottoms/leggings, socks, trainers and your school jumper. Please make sure you also bring a coat and a jumper to school each day in case of showery weather.

Please remember to bring your own water bottle in to school. You can keep this in class and we will refill it every day. We'll send them home at the end of each half term.

Please read your home reader and ask an adult to write down the pages you have read.

Bring your books into school on a Monday and Thursday to be changed.

Remember to keep working hard and always try your best.

Take care and stay safe especially now that the evenings are darker!
