Welcome to Year 3!
How wonderful it has been to have seen you all after such a long break! Are you excited? There’s lots of enjoyable activities that we’ll be doing this half-term in your new class with Mr Sharp and Mrs Imran!
In maths, we shall be looking at place value, thinking about 3-digit numbers. We shall be ordering and comparing as well as using lots of different representations. We’ll also be using Times Tables Rockstars to help us learn our times tables as well.
In English, we are going to be reading traditional tales – these are stories that you will have heard of before. We are also going to be writing our own traditional tales complete with setting and character descriptions. Each week, there’ll also be spellings to learn so make sure you’re learning spellings which are sent home and practising them on Spelling Shed.
Our topic for the first half of the half-term is Light. We’re going to be investigating where light comes from, how light travels and how shadows are formed. If the weather is nice, we’ll even go outside and measure our shadows and see if they change shape or size throughout the day! After that, we shall be learning about The Victorians – I wonder why there are a group of people called The Victorians?
Our PE days in Year 3 will be Tuesday and Thursday so please come to school in your PE kit on these days. We shall also be learning how to do line drawings in art and start learning a new language – I wonder which language it will be!
We cannot wait to share all this wonderful learning with you in your new class!
