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! 

Weekly Timetable
'My Way' Homework- Autumn 2
Spellings
Times Tables Challenge!

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:

Useful Information

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.

Homework

  • Spellings and maths homework is set weekly.
  • My Way homework is set each half term.
  • Daily reading should also continue at home.

Things we need

  • It is very important that your child has a suitable indoor and outdoor P.E. kit with trainers. P.E. kit should be t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls/trainers. Even though we have set days for P.E. these can often change at short notice and therefore it is best to leave P.E. kit in school throughout the week and take it home at weekends to be washed.
  • Please ensure that your all of your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name so that items of clothing can always be given back.
  • Please ensure that your child brings their book bag with reading books and reading records into school every day.
  • 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.
