Welcome to year 3!

I am very excited to start getting to know the children and getting started on our new topic for this term, Ancient Egypt. Over this term we are going to be looking at multiplication and division in Maths, diary writing and persuasive writing in English and in our Reading lessons, we will be focusing on a story called 'The Boy Who Grew Dragons.' Our topic this half term is Ancient Egypt and in Science we are learning all about light! Please see some fantastic learning links below to support your child with their progression.

Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due the next Thursday. Homework is set on PurpleMash, where they will need to complete a quiz.

Maths homework will be set on MyMaths and will link with their current learning from their maths lessons. 

Reading should be completed ATLEAST 4 times with an adult and your child's reading diaries MUST be signed. If your child has not met this target, they will be required to attend reading club for part of their lunchtime.

If your child would like some extra things to do at home and have the chance to earn some KHCPS points, then they can create some homework based on their current topic, which is Ancient Egypt. You can create anything from fact files, artwork, diary entries, research, artefacts and much more!

If you have any problems with logins or any of the homework then please email me directly.

Year 3 Curriculum Overview

Spring Term Newsletter

Photos of our learning - This week the children are learning to use a dictionary and thesaurus in our reading lessons. Our skill in reading this week is 'vocabulary' and the children are working hard at being Vocabulary Victor! We have started our persuasive writing unit in English that is based on the story 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and this week the children are learning the story orally and through actions. We are continuing our 'light' unit in Science by investigating why the sun can be dangerous and continuing to learn all things netball in our PE lessons. The children have been amazing during Maths this week, where we are focusing on division. Their presentation of work in their maths has been fantastic. Keep up the good work Year 3!
