Y3 – Teacher / TA
Teacher : Mrs Monaghan
Learning Coaches : Miss Bravo and Mrs Morgan
Welcome back to Year 3! I hope you have had a fantastic Christmas break and are looking forward to the Spring term.
This term our project is called 'Rainforest Rules' and we are asking ourselves: What would happen if all the rainforests in the world disappeared?
Our work in English will be focused around a number of texts linked to our current project. These include ‘Jemmy Button’ and 'The Great Kapok Tree'. We will be thinking about how we write sentences and the different punctuation we can use. Children will also be developing their knowledge of the different word classes. Through the different texts, children will have the opportunity to complete a number of different writing activities including; poetry, stories and writing letters. Reading is key and children will be encouraged to read a range of different texts, not just their reading book. Any reading that is completed at home can be commented on in their reading diary.
This term we will be further developing our understanding of multiplication and division. Children have access to Times Tables Rock stars and this provides lots of opportunities to practice them. In Year 3, we will be having a weekly times tables quiz - focusing on both the multiplication and division facts starting with the 3 times table.
To see what we will be learning in maths this term, please see the Spring Term Overview.
This term the children will be learning about Sikhism and their beliefs and how they demonstrate their faith in their daily life. We also be looking at the different values that are upheld by those practising this faith, celebrate differences and similarities between them, and to value their individual gifts and talents.
In P.S.H.E we will be exploring how to develop as learners. Looking at how friendship and love can impact upon us. In addition to this we will be discussing our democracy and rights.
To see what we will be learning in Spanish this term, please see the Spring Term Overview.
Homework will be independent research on Rainforests.
Also please try and read every night with your child, practise spellings and times tables. Your child needs to know their 2,3,4,5,8, and 10 times tables fluently by the end of year 3.
Please feel free to write any comments about your child's learning in their reading diary.
Important Information about our class:
P.E will be every Monday and the children will need shorts, PE top and pumps. Please send their P.E kit in a labelled bag.
They will need to keep their reading diary, and reading book in it.
Try and get into the habit of checking the school website or app every evening for information letters or messages.
If you have any concerns please speak to Myself and I will do my very best to help.
