Welcome to Year 3
Hello Year 3! We hope you have had a good half term break and are ready to engage with your learning this half term. Let's hope the sunshine lasts so we can carry out lots of activities outside! We are looking forward to having Y3 and 4 sports day later in the half term.
|Summer 2 half term|
This half term we will be continuing our science topic on plants, focussing on flower, fruit and seeds. In history we will be looking at the invention and development of railways. We will also be having a go at creating an animation using the ipads.
You can find a copy of the homework letter here and our class letter here. We do expect everyone to be reading every day, and spending some time practicing spellings and times tables. Do also check out the online and offline learning areas of the school website for extra challenges.
this half term we will be doing spellings a little differently. Children will be generating their own lists based on mistakes they have made in their recent writing. This makes a whole class spelling test difficult but we will be testing our own learning partners on Mondays during our spelling lesson. Please use the lists stuck in your homework book for this.
Sumdog –Look out for our weekly challenges. There will be two challenges set for each week, one based on the maths learning of the previous week, the second a times table challenge. We are now focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables and, for those in school, we will be monitoring how well you know them in our Friday Times table test. Sumdog is an excellent way to practice and you can even earn bonus points for completing both challenges.
