TERM 1 and TERM 2

Welcome back, we hope you had a fabulous summer! We are happy to see lots of smiley faces in Year 3 and are looking forward to all the fun we will have in our learning this year. The children have settled in well and have impressed us with their enthusiasm so far!

In Terms 1 and 2 we are going to be immersing ourselves into learning all about the area we live in and how we fit into the wider world.  We will be sharing the book The Wilderness War, which we are sure will lead to lots of fantastic discussion and writing about the environment.

Over the next few weeks we will be issuing the children with a reading book at the appropriate level and we ask that you ensure it is read at home at least three times a week.

In Maths we are starting with place value, focusing on the value of numbers, partitioning and comparing. We will be encouraging the children to look closely at their times tables so that they can improve their understanding of multiplication and their rapid recall of facts.

Please try and encourage your child to have a go at their times tables whenever you can. More information will follow as the weeks go by.

In Science we will be learning about living things, grouping and classifying and habitats. This will link to our English work and give children a full insight into the value of protecting the environment around them.

In PE we will be focusing on games and gymnastics and are very lucky to have specialist teachers to help us further improve our skills.

We are sure it will be a very busy but enjoyable term for us all!
