Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term. This is an important term for Year 3 as they will continue along their journey of faith and prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Last half term we enjoyed reading George's Marvellous Medicine and this year our new class reader will be 'The Hodgeheg' by Dick King Smith. Children will share the story in class, and focus on the text as stimulus for writing activities.
In Mathematics will will continue to focus on the four operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Each week we will have weekly multiplication tests and children are enjoying the challenging of beating the clock to complete questions in under 3 minutes. It is important that children are confident with their 2,3,4,5,6,10 times tables by the end of Year 3.
Values and Virtues
Our values and virtues for this half term are ‘Faithfilled and Hopeful’. Year 3 are looking out for those who live out these values and virtues in our everyday school lives. We will share and celebrate the actions and words of those children in class.
For this half term children will need outdoor PE kits and trainers. Children are reminded not to wear watches or jewellery and girls will need to take their studs out before the PE lesson commences. We will be having P.E on Mondays and Thursdays.
Weekly homework in Year 3 will continue to be sent home on a Friday. You should have everything in your folders. Please hand in homework by Wednesday and put your spelling book in your drawer ready for Thursday’s Spelling Quiz.
Well done to all of those children who are completing one activity per week in their reading journals.
Children should continue to read their school reading book every evening, and can use these books as stimulus for their reading journal activities. Children know how to change their book in school but they must tell a teacher that they have finished their book before they do that independently in class.
Thank you for your continued support and if you have any queries or questions, please come and speak to me at the beginning or end of the day or via email.
