3P

Welcome to year 3!

 Our teacher is Miss Penson and our teaching assistant is Mrs Watkins.

This term:

ENGLISH – In English, we will be focussing on narrative writing with lots of description taking inspiration from the book, The Stone Age Boy.

MATHS - In Maths our focus will be primarily on number. We will be encouraging the children to learn their tables thoroughly, so please do help test them at home.

TOPIC – Our focus for this term will be The Stone Age. Amongst other things, we will learn about a day in the life of Stone Age man, the discovery of bronze and iron and the Stone Age village, Skara Brae. In art we will be cave painting and modelling after looking at Stonehenge.

SCIENCE – Rocks followed by light.

PE:

 3P will do outdoor PE on a Wednesday.

On Fridays, all of year three will be going swimming. Please ensure kits are brought into school every Friday of the autumn term, including swimming hats for girls. Goggles may be worn.

 

Homework:

The children will be getting English and Maths homework each week. Please do make sure that they complete this and hand it in on time. They will also have weekly spellings to learn. It would be great if you could help them learn these by testing them. Reading books will come home each evening and need to be in school every day.

If you have any concerns do please come in to speak to one of us, so that we can help you as quickly as we can.
