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.
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.
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.
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 comes to school in PE kit on these days.
*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.*
This half term in our topic lessons, we will be focusing on The Stone Age. This will be through History but also linking together Art and Design Technology. Please see the attached document (knowledge organiser) for a brief overview.
