Year 3 SM
STOP PRESS...
THE LAST SWIMMING LESSON DATE IS TUESDAY 22 JANUARY....

Welcome back to a brand new year and a new term. The children are continuing to broaden their knowledge and develop their skills across the curriculum. On Monday 28 January we will be joined by Mr Egypt for an interactive workshop - for the whole day! The children will have the opportunity to handle real Egyptian artefacts, have a go at mummy making and will find out fascinating facts about the daily lives of the Ancient Egyptians as we take a step back in time over 3000 years ago.

KEY DATES:Thanks to all of the parents who came to our parents' evenings last term. It was great to share the children's many achievements. We hope you also enjoyed the Curriculum Evening for Parents. If you couldn't make it or want a reminder, don't worry there is a copy of the information given in the Ebag. Please note that there will be a further two parents' evenings in February with dates to be released shortly.


Ms Mackenzie, Mr Banks and the TA team welcome you to Year 3 and the first year of the Juniors!
There are lots of exciting opportunities to learn, both inside and outside of the classroom. During English lessons, the children will study a variety of stories and poems including poems to perform and myths and legends. The children develop their skills in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and they find new ways to express themselves through activities using drama, music and creative writing. In Maths, they consolidate and extend their practical, mental and written skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They learn to solve a range of word problems as they use and apply their maths in their everyday lives. Topic work leads the children on a cross-curricular learning journey around the world and through Rainforests and back in time to People of the Past! Keep watching the website and letters home for updates on forthcoming exciting trips and visits! We get to keep fit and go for swimming lessons on a Tuesday for the first term, too - Hurrah! 🏊


Learning Goals
Being in Year 3 is an exciting place to be as a whole new part of the school opens up to the children. It is here that they learn to become even more responsible and organised as they become Juniors.

Everyone in Year 3 continues to have individual targets for English and Maths as well as a General target which they work hard on, both at home and school. These are reviewed regularly and help the children to keep a focus on their learning, achieve and reach their potential.
Homework
In Year 3, homework plays an important part in the children's learning and is set to address the needs of each child, to review and consolidate their learning and to develop independent learning skills.
English is given on a Monday and expected back by Thursday each week.
Maths is given on a Thursday and is expected in on the following Monday. The spelling test is given each Friday and children should aim for full marks with regular practice.

Our children are also actively encouraged to read every night at home and to practise their spellings and target times tables on a regular basis throughout the week.
