Year 3

With Miss McKee & Mr Miller

back to school. color pencils

Hello Year 3s!
Welcome to our class page. 

Welcome to the Juniors Year 3s! We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday and are settling in to your new classes.

In English we will be enjoying reading George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. Then we will focus on non fiction writing, organising our ideas and writing clearly using great vocabulary. After the dinosaur visit we will be working on news reports. We will also be working on grammar and punctuation.

In Maths we are counting backwards and forwards in 1s,2s,5s,and 10s and looking at place value in larger numbers. We will also practise spelling number words. 

Our Science work is all about ROCKS - understanding how they are formed: testing their properties and looking at how they are used in the world around us.

We will be travelling far into the past in our history work to find out about the STONE AGE!

Our PE day is  on WEDNESDAY.  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 in case of showery weather. If the weather is sunny please apply sun cream before you come into school.

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. In this warm weather 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 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. 

You must bring your book EVERY Monday 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 for this week. 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.
