Year 3

Mrs Courtney-Smith (Currently on Maternity Leave)

Class Teacher: Mr Kayley

Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome to the Year 3 class page! I hope you find everything you need to support your child’s learning.

PE days will be on a Tuesday and Friday, please continue to come to school in your school uniform and we will change into our PE uniform for the lesson. PE uniform can be brought into school and left on your child’s peg for the half term and consists of a plain white polo shirt/t-shirt, black shorts, black leggings or plain black tracksuit bottoms. trainers/pumps and a red fleece/jumper/cardigan for outdoor PE.

Reading books will be changed as frequently as your child reads them. They have the opportunity to change them at the end of every school day. It would be beneficial to your child if you read at home daily for ten minutes throughout the year.

Please come back to our class page regularly for updates about your child’s learning and if you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message FAO Mr Kayley. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message and I will get back to you ASAP.

What are we learning?

In English…

We are reading and writing about ‘The Great Kapok Tree’. In our units we will be focussing on making our writing accurate and including lots of up-levelled vocabulary!

In Maths…

Throughout the year we are always consolidating our prior knowledge. This half term we are learning about shape, space and measure. As always, times tables are an important part of fluency as we head towards the Statutory Multiplication Check in Year 4 and time tables will be practised often in class. Additionally, why not practise on TT Rockstars and challenge yourself and friends?

In Science…

We are continuing with our forces and magnets unit, learning all about why we use magnets and how they work!

In RE…

We will be investigating the impact that Jesus had, has and continues to have on people’s lives before moving onto our Easter unit, where we will explore the sadness and joy of Easter.

In Topic…

We have moved onto our term-long Georgraphy unit looking at Rainforests. We will be answering the question, ‘Does it always rain in the rainforest?’ We will be investigating weather patterns and climate zones, as well as the features of rainforests.
