Homework - Homework will be given out on a Friday and due in on the following Wednesday. Homework in Year 3 is Spellings and times tables which are tested on a Thursday. All the children have been given a login sheet for Times Tables Rock Stars and Reading Eggs which they can use to practise times tables facts and reading skills at home. If you cannot find your login sheet, please contact your class teacher who can sort out a copy to keep at home.
Reading - Children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home. Please record reading at home in reading records. Reading records will be checked daily, and a record kept of how many times children have read at home. Children earn apples for certain numbers of daily reads and these get displayed on a class reading tree in the classroom.
PE - We have 2 PE lessons per week - 1 outdoor and 1 indoor. Please ensure PE kit is in school Monday to Friday.
Below is information about our learning this term as well as links to useful websites for our learning.
Autumn Term 2 - Take One Scientist
Our focus for Autumn Term 1 has a scientific theme - we will be exploring the scientist Michael Faraday and focussing on his work linked to magnets. Our Science unit of work is Forces and Magnets. We will explore different forces before looking at magnetism. We will look at magnets and observe how they behave before testing different materials to see if they are magnetic. Have a look at the knowledge organiser below for more information about our learning.
Our focus this term in English will be on exploring the text 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura. We will explore the story and its themes before writing setting descriptions. We will then plan our own endings for the story using ideas from our History unit Stone Age to Iron Age.
We will be focussing on writing super sentences throughout this term, making sure we punctuate them accurately and use interesting vocabulary.
In Maths, we will continue to explore addition & subtraction and then multiplication & division.
Use the videos below to help practice your 2x, 5x and 10x tables:
