Bonjour Year 3

 

                                                                                            Baubles Children's Primary School Nativity Play

Please  remember to learn your lines because  our Xmas performances are just around the corner!

Well we have such a busy and fun term ahead of us - the staff in Year 3 are so excited! There is just so much to look forward to.

Before we do...

  • We are a NUT Free Year group so please no nuts or sesame seeds in snacks or lunches
  • Children should bring a healthy snack for break times (e.g. fruit or vegetables) and a labelled bottle of water to drink
  • Please ensure your child reads daily and that it is written into their reading record - this should be brought into school every day (they do not need to bring in their book if it is unfinished)
  • Spellings are given on Monday and should be returned by the following Monday
  • Maths home-learning is given on Friday and should be returned on Monday
  • Home- learning books should only be returned as and when you complete a task from the grid - We were very impressed by the standard of work produced last half termfrown

On Wednesday 1st November we will be auditioning for parts in the Year 3/4 Christmas Extravaganza - so don't forget to learn your lines!

Kent Life

On Monday 20th November we visited Kent Life to learn more about Stone Age Britain - Thank You to everyone who helped on the day. 

Watch this space for pictures!

 

On Thursday 14th December, we will take part in a Christmas labyrinth in the school hall - this is an exciting new way for children to engage with and learn all about the Christmas story.

 

Further dates will be provided by the school office.

 

 

 

In English this term we will be focussing on two non-fiction texts: Secrets of Stonehenge and Celts. We will also be reading different types of poetry (Haikus and Kennings) as well as a delightful poem called The Magic Box by Kit Wright.

 

In numeracy, we will continue work on times tables and division facts - so please keep practising them. If you would like games to support your learning then see below on the Home Support link or try http://coolsciencelab.com/math_magician.html.

In our calculation work, some children will be introduced to the column addition method whilst some children will continue to consolidate addition using number lines.

 

In our Link learning, children will be asking and answering important historical questions about Stonehenge, the Iron Age and Maiden Castle. You could do some of your own research using these websites:

Children will continue to develop their knowledge of the British Isles by learning about the counties around Kent.

Welcome to Year 3

 

We hope you had an amazing summer.frown

 

Year 3 will be a fantastic, fun filled learning adventure and we are looking forward to teaching you.no

 

Our topic this term is Stones and Bones

 

In Literacy we have three fantastic books to help us learn more about the Stone Age.

You can also learn more by visiting the following websites – it’s fascinating to learn just how pre-historic people looked and lived!

In numeracy we will be learning about numbers: place value; reading and writing; ordering and comparing and using the symbols < > =. We will also be revisiting and consolidating calculation methods learnt in Year 2.

From Year 3, children take part in weekly Times Tables challenges. They will be asked to complete multiplication and division facts for 2s, 5s and 10 times tables. We will begin with 10 times tables – so please practise them regularly at home.

 

In science, children will be investigating rocks and soils. They will learn about how rocks are formed and about the three different types of rocks: metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary.

Recorder lessons begin every Monday (instruments will be provided).

 

Please make sure your child has a full PE Kit in school

(days to be confirmed).

 

 

Homework will be sent home in the form of a homework book containing a different grid each term.

This has activities from across the curriculum for children to complete in whichever order they choose.

 

In addition children need to be learning their spellings (given out and tested on a weekly basis) and their times tables.

 

Homework books are due in each Monday and will be returned to the children on Tuesday.

 

The children will be receiving home reading journals for them to record their reading at home each week. The target is to read 5 times each week. We will monitor who is reading regularly and give out small prizes for those children who do this.

 

 

Please send your child to school with a named water bottle as it is very important for them to stay hydrated.

 

Nut Allergy – Please remember we are a nut free year group and children should not bring in any snacks or foods containing nuts or sesame seeds - Thank YOU

 

If you have any questions or issues to discuss you can put a note in your child's contact/reading book or catch us at the door in the morning or afternoon.
