Fleet Class Year 3

Picture 1

April 2017

Summertime!  Hooray!

 

I’m sure you’ve had a brilliant Easter holiday and that you’re raring to go for the new term – your last in Year 3….boo!

The key to success in Year 3 is to practise reading, spelling and tables at home to support all of your in-school challenges.  This term is your last chance to master your 3s, 4s, 8s and 9s, so make sure you know them BACKWARDS!  Then you will be super clever and ready for the new challenges in Year 4!

 

In Literacy we will be sharing The Witches and Viking at School.  We will also explore and create some amazing non-fiction texts about animals so that you can wow us with your knowledge!  Later in term we will investigate myths, share play scripts and enjoy performing some poetry. 

 

Maths will start off with fractions and continue into shape work.  We will be consolidating all of our number strategies as well as perfecting our time skills!

 

Our topic this term is ‘The Vikings’.  This will form the basis of our geography and history work as well as much of our art.  Science will be focused on flowering plants and light and shadow – hopefully the sun will come out a lot and help us in our learning!

 

Let’s have a brilliant end to Year 3!!!

 

Important Dates:

Tesco Visit: 12th June

Class Assembly: 28th June

Legoland: 29th June

Happy New Year - Welcome Back!

Happy New Year!

 

I hope you’ve had a relaxing fun-filled break and that you’re raring to go for the new term!

The key to success in Year 3 is to practise reading, spelling and tables at home to support all of your in-school challenges.  These three things will make life so much easier!

 

In literacy we will be sharing James and the Giant Peach – another Roald Dahl favourite!  We will also explore the clever picture book s of Anthony Browne and write our very own adventure stories in his style! World Book Day will feature storytelling as usual – watch this space to find out which costume you will need!

 

Maths will still be focused on our 4, 8 and 9 x tables (in addition to your 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s which should be perfect!).  We will be moving into time and fraction work – both of which can be practised a lot at home as well as consolidating our written methods for all four operations.

 

Our topic this term is Construction.  Luckily, we have a building site right outside our very own classroom!  We will be monitoring progress closely as well as studying constructions and life in Ancient Egypt. This work will be supported by an exciting trip to the British Museum.

 

In Science, our topic is Magnets.  There will be opportunities for plenty of experiments and scientific observations.

 

Important Dates:

British Museum: 23rd February

World Book Day: 2nd March

Reports to Parents: 24th March

Parent Consultations: 27th and 28th March

Welcome to Fleet Class!

Well hello Fleet Class!

 

Welcome to the Juniors – you’re growing up very quickly indeed!

What an exciting year we have ahead, packed with fun, trips and lots and lots of learning!

 

The key to success in Year 3 is to practise reading, spelling and tables at home to support all of your in-school challenges.  These three things will make life so much easier!

 

We will be having a focus on Roald Dahl books through the year – I wonder if any of you took on the Summer Library Reading Challenge?!  Year 3 is the perfect time to explore some of his famous stories – we will be enjoying Matilda this term – perhaps you’ve seen the stage show?  In addition, we will be telling stories, writing poems and much more.

Maths will be focused on our 4, 8 and 9 x tables ( in addition to your 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s which should be perfect!).  In Year 3 we move into more formal methods of written calculation so be ready to impress your parents with your advanced skills.

Our topic this term is Settings – and where better to start than our very own ‘Sutton’?!  We shall be mapping the local area following a local walk as well as investigating Sutton of the past. 

In Science, our first topic is Rocks and Soils – where do they come from and how do they differ?  There will be opportunities for plenty of experiments and scientific observations. Following half term, we will look at skeletons and our bodies, including food and nutrition.

Book fair:  27th and “8th September
