Thank you for visiting our class page. For some of you it has been a while since you last came to school. Just to put your minds at ease, here is a picture of our classroom with Mrs Kershaw and I.
We are excited about the term ahead and I hope you are too. As well as getting our teeth back into some brilliant maths and English, we will be starting a brand new topic on the Stone Age. By Christmas we should know the main differences between the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. We will learn about:
-Neolithic hunter-gatherers and early farmers
-Bronze age religion, technology and travel
-Iron Age hill forts
-Farming, art and culture
...and much much more
We will also be completing lots of scientific enquiry and learning in class. At The Firs we encourage child-led enquiry and questioning and in Year 3 we try to provide as many opportunities for this as possible.
Besides these fabulous learning opportunities, our rich and varied curriculum will give you all a chance to grow your brains and have fun doing it. Please see our curriculum overview below for a more detailed look at what we will be learning.
We actively encourage home learning to continue to take place throughout the year. Try and read every day and discuss what you're reading with an adult. Bug Club is a fantastic resource for you to use at home and provides online books for you to read with challenging comprehension questions. Mathletics and TT Rockstars will help you to develop your mathematical abilities at home and support the learning that will be taking place in school. There are links to these resources and many others on the website. Homework will be sent home every week and collected in and marked on Wednesdays.
PE will be on Mondays and Fridays. Please SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IN THEIR PE KIT FOR THE DAY.
The Year 3 team are here to support you and help you to have a fantastic time at our fantastic school.
This week we would like you to recap on anything that you are still unsure about. Maybe you're having a wobble with telling the time or want to practise methods of subtraction again?
We have attached a list of useful links for you to access online lessons and resources for all subjects. We have also provided you with a few Spanish lessons which you will find attached as 'Topic planning.' We hope you enjoy exploring the fun activities.
