Children in this class are aged between and 7 and 8 years of age.
Teacher: Ms Peacock
Teaching Assistant: Miss Bowden and Mrs Ward
Year 3 is an important year for learning; it is a year when children should become competent and confident in new skills, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. We will be working hard learning new skills, practising these skills and applying them across all lessons and subjects.
Our first topic for year 3 is ‘Gods and Mortals’ where the children will have the opportunity to learn all about Ancient Greece, the history of the country, some traditions and of course the many myths and legends that surround this time period.
Homework: Homework will be sent out every Thursday and is expected to be returned each Wednesday (or earlier). Homework returned on time will earn children 3 'You’ve Been Spotteds' and 10 house points. Children that do not return homework on time will complete it during break times until it is complete. If children miss three weeks in a row, they will receive a dinner time detention. Homework will consist of times tables practise and spellings practise.
PE: Our P.E for this half term will be on a Monday and Wednesday. Furthermore, it is important for pupils to wear the correct clothing for physical activities. For PE children require a round necked T-shirt in the house colours (red for Rooks, yellow for Crows, green for Magpies and blue for Jackdaws), plain black shorts and pumps or trainers. For games activities outside children need a T-shirt and shorts, trainers/boots; shin pads for football and hockey. Track suits or sweatshirts may be worn for games during the winter months. All clothing should be clearly labelled. Jewellery must not be worn for sporting activities and long hair should be tied back.
Author of the half term: Our author for this half term is Hans Christian Anderson. He has written many famous books: The Little Mermaid, The Snow Queen, The Ugly Duckling and many more.
Reading books: Children will also be expected to read at home daily – can you please make sure reading records are dated and signed each time you read at home. Children can change their books in school as many times as they want.
