Hello from Mr Goacher, Miss Cooke and Mrs Ball
Dear Parents and Children,
Welcome back to year 3.
It is so great to be able to welcome all the chilcrean back into school again!
We also know that some of you may be feelling nervous and anxious, we will have lots of time to talk about our feelings as well as plenty of time for you to catch up with your friends.
Also we would like to say thank you for all your hard work over the last 8 weeks, working online and at home is not always easy but you have worked so hard and we are very proud of you!
Our English this half term will be be continuing with the work started during lockdown looking at the book 'Journey' by Aaron Becker. We will be completing lots of short burst writing tasks getting the children to retell parts of the story. We will also hen be moving onto looking at the sequel to this, 'Quest'.
In order to best support you child's learning we ask that they are read with by and adult or older sibling at least 3 times a week. They will then complete their 'quizes' on these books in school so we can keep a check on their reading progress.
They will also be having weekly spellings sent home on a Monday that they will then be tested on in school on a Friday.
Our maths work this term will be looking at shape and measure, looking at using rulers accurately alongside calculating the perimeter of different shapes.
We will also be completing work looking at a range of skills using fractions. This will include: finding fractions of a shape, fractions of amounts, adding and subtracting fractions and comparing fractions.
The childre will also be continually practicing their times tables through weekly quizes through times tables rockstars.
Our PE will take place on Monday afternoons, with North West Coaches, and Friday mornings with myself. Both sessions will be run outdoors (weather providing) so please send your child to school dressed for outdoor PE on both of these days.
For homework this term we have 3 ongogin tasks.
The children will have weekly spellings to practice.
Reading 3x a week with an adult or older sibling.
Use of Timestables Rockstars to practice their times tables.
