Year 3

With Miss McKee & Mr Connolly

Hello Year 3s!
Welcome to our class page. 

Welcome back Year 3s! We hope you have had a lovely half term holiday and you are full of energy for this final half term.

In our English work we will be reading a portal story called The Door and learning to recite it aloud.  We will read several other similar tales that take us to new worlds. Then we will look at the features and write one of our own. We will also continue to work on grammar and punctuation. Remember to hear your child read a few pages of their home reading book each night and write this into their record books. They can also read on MyON (see the link lower down on this page).

In Maths we are continuing to develop our place value skills and then quickly practising addition, subtraction, multiplication and division calculations. We will also be recapping fractions and a range of measures. We will be continuing to practise our 2s, 3s,4s, 5s and 10 times tables and continuing to learn our 8s.

Our Science work is all about plants and how they spread their seeds. This links really nicely with our Geography topic about The Rainforest. 

On Thursday 27th June we will be going on our class trip to Martin Mere to see lots of birds from the UK and around the world. There are also some otters. During our visit we will be learning how we can help to make a difference and conserve our planet. It's a great day, loads to learn and loads of fun too!!

Our PE day is  THURSDAY.  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 bring a coat and a jumper to school everyday.

If you wear glasses please bring them to school every day.

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

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

Bring your books into school on a Tuesday and Friday to be changed. 

You must bring your book EVERY Friday if you are reading a phonics books.

Remember to keep working hard and always try your best.

Take care and stay safe.

Weekly Spellings

Here are the spelling lists

There are 3 levels of spellings and your child will know which set of words they are learning. (Underneath the weekly spellings are the long lists for each year group so that you can practise any other individual words that your child has difficulty with.)

Please help your child to learn their spellings during the week.

They could try LOOK -SAY -COVER- WRITE- CHECK.

LOOK at the word. SAY it.  COVER it. WRITE it from memory. Then CHECK to see if they were right.

Spelling homework will be tested every Friday. Please help them to practise. Thank you.
