Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome back! I hope you had an enjoyable summer break and are looking forward to the first term of Year 3.
This term we will be studying the Romans! We have lots of exciting activities and days planned to do with our topic work and are excited to get stuck in! Our science topic for the first half term is the Human Body where we will be learning all about food groups and how each one affects our bodies differently. In RE we will be looking at Hinduism and their celebrations and beliefs.
Towards the end of term we would hope to organise a Roman themed day, so start thinking about your costumes!
English homework will be given out on a Friday. Maths homework this term will be set either on Mathletics or on sheets also on a Friday. Spellings and Times Tables will also be given out on this day with weekly tests and challenges on a Friday morning. We will also be encouraging the children to learn the spellings from the Year 3 wordlist, which will be distributed. We appreciate your cooperation with this.
We will be doing PE on Mondays and Fridays. All clothing must be named, in order to prevent items from going missing and I ask that you ensure your child has suitable PE kit for both indoor and outdoor PE (especially as winter approaches).
On Thursdays we will be having ‘Magic Moments’ in class. This is a chance for the children to share something special to them or showcase what they have learned at home. This will be on a rotation basis.
As the weather still can be quite warm, it is important to ensure that children have a named water bottle with them every day.
Any problems please do not hesitate to contact me, either directly or through the office.
