This is what the children will be learning in school this term:
MATHS - POWER MATHS
In maths we are following a scheme called Power Maths. Every child has their own practice book in which they complete tasks each lesson. During lessons, children are encouraged to discover and then share their thoughts with their peers about how they would solve mathematical problems and they are encouraged to reason and explain their mathematical thinking. In maths, we will be using lots of practical resources to help the children understand concepts and to help them master the different areas of the maths curriculum.
In year 3 we are studying the following texts this year:
We will be writing a range of genres based on these texts including: poetry, formal and informal letters, information texts, myths, newspaper reports, adventure stories, suspense stories, biographies and recounts.
Throughout the year we will be learning about the following topics in the different foundation subjects:
IDEAS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD AT HOME
As well as weekly spellings, reading and x tables practice, children need to complete five activities from the homework sheet (the are 5 rows all containing tasks from different aspects of the curriculum). Children must aim to spend at least 40 minutes on each piece of work. We ask for the books to be handed in halfway through the term, so that we can check the children’s progress. The final date for all work to be completed is the last Tuesday of the term. One week is dedicated to family time, so if you have a busy weekend, please write ‘family time’ in the homework books.
Children will independently change their own books this year using their Accelerated Reader ZPD ranges. If your child has finished reading their book, please discuss the characters and events with them, ensuring that they have understood what they have read. Please make sure that you are reading with your child every day. Every child who reads to an adult at home 4 times a week can colour their name on our reading display. Children who complete this every week will receive an award in assembly.
Our PE lessons are timetabled for Tuesdays and Fridays.
