Homework will be set every Thursday and must be returned the following Wednesday. This will usually consist of a Maths and English task (spelling and sentences). 

Reading for at least 15 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Children are allocated books each week on BUG CLUB, in addition to this they are encouraged to read a book from home. In Year 3, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading and reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record. 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

The Year 3 Team

Here is an overview of what we will be covering in Maths this year.

Spring 1: Week 3 beginning 17th January 2022

 

RE:  Topic: Journeys

The children will learn and understand that Our Lady has feast days. They will also learn what a pilgrimage psalm is.    

 

English: Book: INTO THE FOREST  (Anthony Browne)

Grammar, spelling and punctuation: The children will learn how to use prepositions of time, place and cause in their writing. Furthermore the use of inverted commas (speech marks) will be revised.  

Writing: To write a dialogue between characters. To compare two stories. 

Reading: Retrieval skills

                The children will learn how to retrieve information to answer questions  

                

Maths: Multiplication and dividing by 8 

We continue to revise multiplying and dividing by 2, 3,4,5 and 10. 

This week the children will explore and learn making equal groups of 8, using the multiplication symbol and how to use the inverse.  They will learn the 8 times table. Word problem, logical reasoning and missing number problems will be explored using these facts. 

 

Science: Light and dark

This week the children will look at materials and will investigate the best material to reflect light. To understand that light is reflected from surfaces and be able to explain how mirrors work.
