Welcome to Class 3 - Miss Barber

PE Kits: PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday after half term (February 25th).  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 aloud at least 3 times a week and this should be noted in the 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 Stone Age. Please bring in any independent learning from this, week commencing the 8th April, 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 are using ‘Ug’ and ‘Stone Age Boy’ texts to link with our History topic of Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will be looking at the language the writer uses and how they have developed characters and settings within both books. Whilst reading these texts, the children will be writing different genres including letters, diary entries, narrative and non-chronological reports. We will also look at some different types of poetry, write our own poems and have a go at performing some of our favourite poems. 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 measures including length, mass and weight. We will then be spending a lot of time on fractions.

Science: We will be continuing our topic on Sound before moving on to learning about Rocks. This will also link to our History topic of Stone Age to Iron Age.  

RE: Our class focus is ‘How is Life Like a Journey?’ for the first half term. We will be focusing on traditions carried out in the Christian and Jewish faiths. During the second half term, we will be learning about the Easter story.

Art / DT: We will all be creating some artwork for the exhibition at the Pyramid linked to the title ‘Warrington’ before moving onto packaging and bread making in D&T.

Music: The Year 3 children will continue Gospel singing this term. You can look forward to some performances later in the year.

Computing: The children will focus on programming using the DB Primary scheme.

French: We will look at animals, carnival & playground games and Easter celebrations.

PE: One session per week is provided by an outside agency where the children will participate in invasion games as well as net/wall games. The second session is a focus on the key skills in games such as throwing and catching.

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.
