Welcome to the Year 3 page!

3SB Class charter

3SB Class charter 1

Staff in year 3:

The staff in Year 3 are:

3SB - Mr Broom (Class Teacher) and Mrs White (Teaching Assistant)

3JF - Mr Fischer (Class Teacher) and Mrs Capaldi (Teaching Assistant)

 

Topic overview:

Our topic is Geography and we will be looking at South America with a particular focus on the Amazon rainforest. If children wish to further explore this subject, a great idea for home learning would be to build a model of a rainforest canopy. We feel that this will allow students the opportunity to research the topic more deeply providing a richer learning experience.

 

Timetable:

This terms P.E. will be focusing on athletics, swimming and striking and fielding games. Children will have P.E twice per week, once indoors and once outdoors. Children are expected to have their P.E. kit in school at all times and will need suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. If you are unsure on what is acceptable please refer to the school's uniform policy. If in the instance that the P.E. kit becomes dirty and needs to be taken home and washed please ensure that it is back in school for Tuesday and Thursday.

 

Equipment:

We will provide the children with all classroom stationery, however, they are able to bring in their own pencil case if they wish. This will be their own responsibility and will be kept in their locker.

 

Homework:

Maths homework after the half term will be solely dedicated to securing times tables knowledge, this will last until the  Summer term. Instead of homework being given out on a weekly basis, children are expected to use their TTRockstars account. If any children are unable to access this at home please see a year 3 teacher so that worksheets can be printed out. 

 

We would also like to ask that all children read daily, practise their spellings from the lists in their spelling books, and practise their times tables (2's,3's,4's, 5's, 8's and 10's). It is an end of year expectation that they know these spellings and times tables. 

 

Spellings:

Over the year we will be learning to spell words from the Year 3 & 4 word list. The children will have two weeks to learn their spellings and will be tested in school every other Monday morning. Please be aware that some additional spellings may be used which have been learnt within their phonics lessons (Read Write Inc).
