Stone Age Day
Year 3 were treated to a day with a Stone Age man. As part of their history topic, the children have been learning abut how important the Stone Age is in shaping our history (it is 99% of all human history!). Mr and Mrs Trevor then visited to reinforce this learning and help Year 3 to discover how an archaeologist works and the basics of chronology. We then looked at some artifacts that have been re-created and looked at how these have helped us to learn about the life in those times. All in all, it was an exciting and interesting day.
Class Routines
 
PE is on a Wednesday and Friday. Children must bring full PE kit on these days.
 
HOMEWORK In Year 3, homework will consist of 30 minutes Maths Whizz. In addition to this, the children will also be given a Topic homework. This will be completed over the half-term. We set this to encourage the children to take responsibility over their learning, enable the children to go into greater depth in a topic and also to allow them time to show off the standard of their work.
 
READING is expected to be completed 3 times per week. In year 3, it would be beneficial if the children read with an adult to check their reading fluency, address any mistakes the children are making and also check comprehension of the text. Please sign the children's diary to show that they have read. Children will also benefit from doing Lexia or Reading Plus at home as much as possible.
 
BOOK CHANGE will take place whenever your child finishes their book. Just ask them to come and see either myself or Mrs Leeming first thing in the morning.
 
SPELLINGS will be given out on a Friday and tested on a Friday. Please help your child with their spellings.
 
TIMES TABLES will be tested every Friday too. By the end of Year 3, your child is expected to have learnt 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. As such, they will be tested accordingly. There are a plethora of games and Apps online. The tried and tested method of learning these by heart is also very useful.
