Year 3. 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome to Year 3 Spring Term
We've made a great start to the new year and to our first year as juniors.
We are going to be learning about lots of exciting things and it’s a very important year in our sacramental journey.
During the term ahead, our topic with be "The Roman Empire and Its Impact on Us." We will be learning all about the Romans and what they did for us.
Do you already know about the things that the Romans did for us?
In English, we will be looking at a range of texts including Big Blue Whale by Nicola Davies and Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. We will also be using visual texts to stimulate our writing including animation films, apps and websites.
Our Maths learning begins this term with a Multiplication and Division focus. We are learning about the written method of multiplication and division. Our focus will again be teaching for mastery using concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning to secure fluency and reasoning skills.
In RE we will be exploring Jesus' teaching about Reconciliation and Celebrating the Mass. Both topics will offer children opportunities to reflect on our role within Christianity and the role of family in our lives and in our faith.
At home there are many different ways in which you can support your child with their learning this year. Each week, the homework books will have details of reinforcement activities that can be completed in the CGP revision books. There are also the Mathletics and Times Tables Rockstars apps that the children are warmly invited to use as regularly as possible. Year 3 children will also be bringing home details of their personalised spelling lists that will need to be practised using the different spelling strategies that we teach in school.
There will be the opportunity to meet formally during the Parent/Teacher evening in March, but in the meantime you are welcome to chat to me after school, or to make an appointment. I am here to help and I look forward to working together with you this year.
Thank you for your support
