A very warm welcome to Year 3! Miss Mallett is the class teacher and Mrs Mazur is the teaching assistant.
In year 3 we will be focusing on our confidence and familiarity with our times tables in order to help us in every area of maths.
We begin the year with our place value topic and will move onto addition and subtraction after half term. In Spring, we will look at multiplication, division and fractions. The Summer term will be all about measurement, geometry and statistics.
I will be looking for gaps in knowledge and supporting those children who need.
In English, we will be focusing on SPaG skills alongside our core books that we are reading. These books will link in various ways to the wider topics that we are studying in year 3.
In the autumn term we will be looking at ‘War and Peas’ by Michael Foreman, ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo, ‘The Egyptian Echo’ Non Fiction-Newspapers and List Poems
In the Spring, we will be looking at ‘The Great Kapok Tree: A tale of the Amazon Rainforest’ Lynne Cherry, ‘Leon and Bob’ by Simon James and ‘Hot like Fire’ by Valerie Bloom Poetry
In the Summer, we will be looking at ‘Into the Forest’ by Anthony Browne, ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright Poetry and ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’ by Kate DiCamillo
Please do NOT read our core books before we have studied them.
In Science, we will be looking at Living things, forces and magnets, rocks, plants and light throughout the year and linking these with our topics.
Homework will be given on a Friday and be due in on Wednesday.
There will be an exercise in the maths book to complete each week, spellings and handwriting as well as 15 minutes of reading a day to be filled out in the reading record.
If homework is not done more than once, a meeting will be arranged with parents.
Maths homework books have cost the school a lot and if lost will need to be replaced by parents.
At St Peter’s, the PE kit is a plain white or green t-shirt with either a pair of black or green shorts. In winter, the children are more than welcome to wear a pair of plain black or green jogging bottoms and a jumper.
Please ensure the clothing is loose and the children can move freely. They should not include large logos. Football kits cannot be worn.
P.E will take place on a Wednesday afternoon (indoors) and then on Friday afternoon, when they have either outdoor P.E depending on the weather.
Please keep the P.E. kit in school during the week and only take home to wash during weekends.
Be prompt - The children should be in school at 8:30am and should be picked up at 3:15pm. At 3:20pm, children will be taken to the office and parents will need to sign them out with a reason for the delay.
Show and Tell - This will be something that I do on a Friday and pick children throughout the week to show something. Show and Tell will not be done on any other days.
Coats - children will be going out to break in rain, snow, wind, sun, any weather! (as long as it’s not dangerous).
Water bottles and snacks.
