Welcome to the 3B class page.
Teacher: Mrs Murray
Some key things to know: PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
Times tables knowledge: Year 3 expectations from the National Curriculum.
Year 3's need to know their x3, x4 and x8 tables by the end of the year and the division facts.
This will build on their skills in the x2, x5 and x10 tables.
How you can help your child: Hit the Button!
Reading is so important.
We strongly encourage parents / carers to read every day with their child.
Please write a note in the home-school diary about what you've read - a variety of good literature is great for a child!
Our focus this second half-term is to focus on our presentation and handwriting in all subjects. Children will be encouraged to improve their skills especially with homework tasks. There will be rewards for pupils showing a significant progress in this area.
Summer Term means Ancient Greece!
This summer term, Year 3 will be immersed in Ancient Greek times! We will be learning all about how people lived during this period, as well as learning some of the skills and ideas that they discovered. This topic will be taught as a cross-curricular subject, including our English lessons, well as separate History lessons. The topic will allow the children to develop their historical knowledge, whilst they continue to practise their English skills in the forms of diary writing, information writing, adventure stories and also drama! During the latter part of the term, the topic will also prepare us for our own sports day, whilst we learn about the first Olympics. Although this is not an Olympic year, this unit creates many fun opportunities to get the children outside to become modern day Olympians.
This exciting project is supported by our trip to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, where the children get to handle replica artefacts and attend a workshop bespoke to Year 3, helping them to understand Ancient Greek life and culture.
