3W-The Minpins - Mrs Woods and Mrs Harrison
Dream, Believe, Achieve
A huge welcome to Year 3. I am Mrs Woods and I can not wait to share and support your child on their journey through this coming year. We will work hard, have lots of fun and continue to become resourceful and resilient learners. Weekly updates will be posted on Class Dojo of our learning for you to enjoy and share our exciting moments and achievements. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school or speak to me on the door.
Enjoy, Respect, Succeed
Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities throughout the week to read a variety of texts and will then undertake an online quiz to assess their understanding of the text.
I will be out of class on a Thursday afternoon.
Miss Kolaitis will cover RE and Music. I'm sure they will have lots of fun!
In Year 3, children are expected to complete two to three pieces of homework a week.
Your child has been provided with both CGP English and maths books to complete their homework. Each week, they will be provided with different page numbers in order to complete different tasks from each book!
Weekly spellings will be sent home every Friday. You should learn these throughout the week, ready for our test on the following Friday morning!
PE will take place every Wednesday and Friday.
Please ensure a full kit is in school ready for your child’s lesson.
It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit or vegetables. We also encourage your child to bring water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch.
We will continue develop an awareness of our European neighbours. We will learn about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. We will learn and investigate when the Romans invaded and why, the Roman army and why they were successful and the location and what life was like on Hadrian's Wall.
Our topic for this term is Living in the Wider World. We will explore our rights and responsibilities and gain an understanding of human rights. We will also discuss keeping safe online and discuss what games are appropriate for us to play safely.
In RE the religion of Christianity will be studied with a focus on God.
The day our favourite little bear came to visit. Paddington was so proud of our innovated stories, he left us some popcorn, tasty treats and even marmalade sandwiches! Yummy!
