Year 3 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 3
Mr Solan teaches full time in one year 3 class while in the other class Mrs Kenyon teaches Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Wharton teaches Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Macaulay and Mrs Killilea.
Our topic this term is 'Wonderful Worlds'.
Our text for this term is the classic ‘Leon and the place between’ by Angela Mcallister, which tells the story of Leon, a little boy who steps through a portal after going to watch the mysterious magician Abdul Kazam…
As part of the unit, we will write instructions for magic tricks, explore figurative language, role play and write our own portal tales! Mrs Kenyon and Mrs Wharton's library time is on a Wednesday afternoon. Each pupil will be able to borrow a library book which will need to be renewed or returned the following week.
This term we will focus on number and place value and multiplication and and division. At home, we would like children to focus on learning their 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We would encourage them to learn the multiplication and division facts for each table so they will have them at their fingertips! We would also like the children to develop their confidence when adding and subtracting larger numbers.
Each child will need a PE kit which should consist of shorts/jogging bottoms, a t-shirt, trainers for outdoor use and pumps for indoor use. Due to changes in the timetable, we would kindly ask the PE kit to remain in school from Monday to Friday to ensure it is always available for these sessions. This half term our PE focus is on gymnastics and related skills.
Mr Solan's PE days are Wednesday (indoors) and Friday (outdoors)
Every child is required to spend some time each week on the Spellodrome website. If you are unable to access the internet at home, the children can attend Spellodrome club, run by a member of staff, each week. In addition, we put a strong emphasis on reading and pupils are encouraged to read independently, or to an adult, who can then sign their reading diary. If pupils read 5 times in a one week period, they are entered in to our regular readers raffle at the end of the week. Look out for our 'regular readers board when you visit the classroom!
