Green - Year 3
Autumn 1 - Newsletter
Welcome to Green Class
Literacy and Maths
In Literacy, we will be looking closely at books that are related to our History Topic (Stone Age to Iron Age) and our Science Topic (Rocks, Soils and Fossils) and will be doing lots of exciting writing based around them.
In Numeracy, we are placing a focus on numbers and place value. This includes work on partitioning, counting in a variety of ways, continuing sequences, using number facts and thinking about each of the operation symbols. We will then move on to addition and subtraction of 100s, 10s and 1s. Through the use of Using and Applying techniques, children will be able to apply what they have learnt to a real-life situation. We will do lots of practising of our times tables, as the more confident the children are with them, the more confident they will become at answering questions related to them. Therefore, extra practise at home would be brilliant and would benefit them greatly.
Across the rest of the curriculum, these are the topics we will be looking at:
Science: Rocks, soils and fossils
History: Stone Age to Iron Age
Computing: Coding and touch-typing
R.E: Different people's beliefs about God
Music: 'I've been to Harlem'
PSHE: Being me
The children will have games with our sports coach Dan on Thursdays and PE on Fridays.
Please can the children continue to come into school wearing their PE kit - a white t shirt, black shorts or joggers and trainers - on Thursdays and Fridays.
Your child will have now received a spelling list and timetable of the week to practise. This should take them no more than 5 minutes each night.
Please also ensure that your child is reading regularly at home as well as school. This really helps to enhance their learning and writing.
As always, if you have any questions or queries about your child's learning, please do get in touch.
