P.E. Kits

P.E. for Year 3 this half term is on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kits and that they remember not to wear their earrings to school on these days. 

 

  Literacy

Please look at the literacy non-negotiables to see what is expected in Year 3.

This half term the children will continue to develop their writing skills through, focussing on story structure/writing a narrative, writing persuasively to convince a tourist to visit Greece and to write a set of instructions focussing on Greek cuisine and the Olympic Games in Athens. 

We will focus on punctuation, starting with the more basic skills of full stops and capital letters developing, onto ending our sentences using question and exclamation marks. We will also, develop our use of adjectives and expanded noun phrases to add more detail to our sentences. 

Our spelling focus, will focus on the Year 3/4 statutory spellings. Our spellings will be learnt in class.

Please look at the maths non-negotiables to see what is expected in Year 3.

This half term the children will be focussing on Place Value where we will represent numbers to 100 and 1000, partition numbers into 100s, 10s and 1s, find 1,10 and 100 more or less than any given number, count in 50s and compare and order numbers to and beyond 100. We will then, move on to focus on Addition and Subtraction. This will include adding and subtracting: 1s, multiples of 100, two and three digit numbers and ones (crossing 10 and not crossing 10/exchanging ), two, two-digit and three-digit numbers (crossing 10 and not crossing 10/exchanging) and a range of problem solving and reasoning activities. 


Topic

Our Topic for this half term is focusses on: 'Modern Greece.'  In this Topic, we will be identifying the countries in Europe and finding Greece on a map, recognising the major cities in Greece and the Greek island using, a map, comparing the houses, beaches, weather and Greek landscape with the UK, considering why Greece is a tourist attraction and studying Greek landmarks. 

 

We will also, have the opportunity to design and make our own Greek inspired pizza pitta breads!

Homework Scheme:

 Every half term the children will choose one or more activities from the homework sheet to complete in their learning log. These will be due in at the end of the term where we will showcase the children's amazing work to our peers.

 Reading:  

Reading as much as possible will really help your child’s progress at school. For their learning passport they must have read three times a week.

Purple mash: 

Purple mash is a fun and an educational site that will help your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum. Please remember to use your child's individual username and password which will be stuck into their reading records. We will be delving into purple mash starting from September!

Ambassador Awards

 This year we have incorporated the Learning Passport within a document that recognises children's achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their 'Ambassador Award' comes under 4 headings:

Citizenship
Relationships
Learning
Behaviour and conduct.

Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the working day and is important to recognise children's achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the success criteria identified. We are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves! Have a look at the Ambassador leaflet to find out more and look through the 'Steps to Success' to help them achieve their Ambassador Awards.
