Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 with Mrs Main

 This term we are reading a variety of texts, including 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes, 'I'll Take You To Mrs Cole' by Nick Butterworth and various other texts related to our topics.

Autumn Term - Our topic is 'Tudors', which will include a visit to Shrewsbury Museum.  In Science we will be finding out about Forces and Magnets.  Our Science topic after half term will be Famous Scientists.

 Spring Term -  Our topic will be 'Under The Sea'. Our Science topic will be Light and Dark and Rocks. We shall be visiting the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham.

Summer Term - Topics will be 'The Rain forest' and Science will be Animals and then Plants.

PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

Children will have English and Maths Home Learning to reinforce some of the topics we have covered during lesson time usually every other week.  They will have a list of spellings on Wednesday which they will write in their Spelling books and then glue the list into their diaries to practise at home, ready for a spelling test the following Wednesday.

Times tables practise will be on-going throughout the year.  It is also important for the children to know other number facts, especially number bonds to 10 and number bonds to 20, which will help the chidlren to develop their knowledge and speed during mental maths activities.

Moving from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two is a very important transition for children.  We expect them to become more independent and less reliant on adults to organise them.  With this in mind we need to work together to ensure the children become responsible for their belongings and certain aspects of their school life.

We will share Forest School sessions with Year 4 usually every other Tuesday afternoon. I will inform you by text as a reminder.

  Any queries or problems, please feel free to see me or write in your child's diary
