Welcome to Year 3!
Our topic this Autumn term is:
We will be learning all about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes! We will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.
We have got so many fantastic and exciting things planned; it’s going to be a wonderful new term!
In KS2, the children practise for the times table challenge. This is a test that they complete, within class, that challenges their fluency and requires quick recalling of multiplications!
This is the order in which we learn times tables. Times table challenge runs from Y3-Y6.
Batman- 2x, 5x, 10x
Hawk Girl- 3x, 4x
Thor- 6x, 7x, 8x
Black Widow- 9x, 11x, 12x
Superman- All of the above, with divisions
Cat Woman- All with place value - THU and tenths (expected by the end of Y5)
Iron Man- 2 digits x 1 digit
Wonder Woman- Fractions, decimals and percentages of quantities
Here are a selection of games/recommended apps to help learn times tables:
Morning drop-off expectations
Children to be dropped off at Year 3 classroom doors. Please ensure that you say goodbye to your child before they come in to the classroom in the morning. In Year 3, they are expected to enter the classroom by themselves and be responsible for their own belongings.
If you need to discuss anything specific with Miss Murfitt, please make an appointment so we can discuss your child without feeling rushed.
Things we need
Children can bring their own labelled water bottles.
Children can bring their own snack to enjoy at break time. As they are now in KS2, there is no longer free fruit available.
