Welcome to Class 3 - Miss Barber

Class 3

Swimming kits/PE Kits: Our Swimming lesson will be on a Monday afternoon and our PE lesson will be on a Wednesday.  PE kits will be sent home to be washed at half term.  Kits and pumps should be named. 

Reading: Children should be listened to read out loud at least 3 times a week and this should be noted in their planner. Please work on asking the children questions about what they have read, how the characters may be feeling and author’s intent.

Homework: SPAG homework will be set on a Friday and is due the following Friday. Please continue to practise times tables and related division facts to improve rapid recall. The times tables Year 3 are expected to know are 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, and 10x however this is not a limit. All children in Year 3 and 4 have been given an additional homework activity linked to our topic of ‘Europe-past and present’ during which we will focus on ‘The Ancient Romans’. Please bring in any independent learning from this, week commencing the 15th July, to share.

Spelling: Children will be working on spelling patterns including suffixes, prefixes and silent letters as well as focusing on the Year 3 and 4 spelling list. Please see the English page of the website for this information.

English: This term in English we will be reading a variety of Greek myths as well as ‘Escape from Pompeii’ to link with our History/Geography topic of ’Europe-present and past’. We will be looking at the language the writer uses and how they have developed characters and settings. Whilst reading these texts, the children will be writing different genres including letters, diary entries, narrative and non-chronological reports. We will link in all relative grammar and punctuation throughout the term.

Maths: The children will be following their curriculum year workbook for Singapore Maths. Year 3 will focus on bar graphs, money, angles, lines and shapes, perimeter of figures and time.

Foundation: In Science, our first topic will be ‘Light’ followed by ‘Living things and their habitats’ where children will learn how to use classification keys to group animals and plants as well as explore how habitats can change.

In RE, we will be comparing the Christian and Jewish places of worship for the first half term. We will also be focusing on traditions carried out in the Christian and Jewish faiths. During the second half term, we will be learning about qualities of a good leader.

In D&T, we will be continuing our topic of looking at packaging and making bread before moving on to our Art topic of repeated patterns and mosaics. This will link to our History topic when we learn about the Ancient Romans.

For Music, the Year 3 children will continue Gospel singing this term. You can look forward to our summer performances including the main concert at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral in July.

In Computing, the children will focus on programming using the DB Primary scheme.

In French, we will be learning new vocabulary for breakfast, fruit nouns and going on a picnic.

PE: One session per week is provided by an outside agency where the children will participate in Athletics activities. The second session will be a swimming lesson during the summer term.

If you require to speak to me, please do not hesitate to call into school. I look forward to working with both you and your children.
