Year 3H 2018 - 2019

Miss Healey

Welcome to Year 3!

Most importantly, we hope that you have all had a fantastic holiday and are all well rested. We have an incredibly busy year ahead but one that hopefully will be lots of fun too!

A big part of this year will be the transition from Infants to Juniors. There is a big step up in the work and expectations of the children but together we will support them as they settle into a different way of working. We appreciate any support from parents and please don’t hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns regarding your child.

Maths and Literacy will continue just like last year with 1 lesson of each per day. In addition to this, we will spend extra time on handwriting and guided reading. Please can you encourage your children to read at home as much as possible. This is vital to their success at school and will benefit them greatly. Even if it is only a small amount every day.

This term in RE will see a focus of prophets surrounding our “Called by God” topic. This is very exciting and contains lots of stories from the Bible, with a reflective theme of repent, forgiveness and quests. Each RE lesson will contain a time for reflection where the children will be encouraged to consider their thoughts and actions in daily life and how to further improve these in order to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. We will also be starting our harvest topic and begin to look at the Old Testament stories from the Bible.

Computing will see more advanced skills such as programming being taught and will give the children a good experience of how computing works. We will with every topic discuss e-safety and how crucial it is to stay safe with technology.

This half term we will begin with geography, looking at where we are in the world and how we would go about finding ourselves using a mix of digital and traditional methods.

Art and DT will focus on structure, creating frames for our work. This fits with our Van Gogh work, Starry Night, with the intention to have a framed piece of art for your children to bring home to you.

Your children will receive spellings to learn every week alongside a weekly piece of homework relating to that week’s work. We very much appreciate your support in ensuring homework is completed, it allows us to see how the children are coping with different topics and where we might need to work next.

Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school every day as this is taught 3 times a week and we wouldn’t want your child to miss out.

All the best,

Miss Healey and Mrs Gill.
