Year 3

Hello Year 3,

We hope you are all safe and well!

Please choose the dated folder for the correct week and then all of the work is there. Each day there will be a Reading activity, Maths lesson, English lesson and an afternoon lesson. We would also like you to spend some time reading a book, play games on TTRS and practising spellings on Edshed.

As always, we can be contacted on the Year group email, if you have any work to share, any questions or would like to speak to one of us: newfieldy3@newfield.dudley.sch.uk

Take care and stay safe!

Reading Announcement!

Feedback Friday

At the end of each week, please remember to send in one piece of work for your teacher to look at. It might be something you have done that you are particularly proud of, or something that you would like some help with. This will probably be in the form of a photo sent to our email address and may even feature in our year 3 work gallery! We will reply to you as soon as we can.

If we don't hear from you we will be in touch to check that you are able to access the home learning without any problems.

Homework & Reading Books

Homework is set on Friday and both books should go home with the children. These then need to be returned on either Monday or Tuesday.

 

Reading books are issued on a Friday and they also need to be returned on either Monday or Tuesday to then be renewed for the following week. Reading records should be in school every day.

 

English

Throughout our units this year, we will have the opportunity to write and improve our work to create quality and well-planned pieces of writing. In addition, we will be working on how to use different types of sentences, openers, punctuation and vocabulary within our writing to create different effects, thinking carefully about the audience and purpose. We will learn and practise our spellings, using different strategies, as well as develop our handwriting joins.

 

We will  have the opportunity to read different text types during a range of different lesson. Please continue to listen to your child read on a regular basis and include any comments in their reading record books. Encouraging your child to discuss the book really helps to develop their understanding further.

                                                                                                       

Maths

Within our maths lessons, we will be working on developing and maintaining written and mental strategies for the four main operations. We will also develop our problem solving and reasoning skills involving place value, number sequences, fractions, money and rounding and estimating.

 

Alongside work based around numbers, we will also learn about properties of 2D and 3D shapes and how to interpret data from different types of graphs. 

 

PE

Indoor PE will take place on Monday afternoons for both 3L and 3A with 3OR following on Tuesday. While outdoor PE will happen on a Thursday afternoon for 3A and 3OR and a Friday afternoon for 3L.

 

Please ensure your child has the correct kit for PE.

*If possible, please try not to send your child with earrings in on these days as they cannot take part in activities with them in.*

 

Topic

This half term in our topic lessons, we will be focusing on South Wales. This will be through Geography but also linking together Art and Design Technology. Please see the attached document (knowledge organiser) for a brief overview.
