Spellings

 

Please find below the Year 3 spellings for both classes. Children are taught the spelling pattern during their spelling sessions within school so please continue to support this by practising at home with your child. We assess the children's spellings every Friday

 

Spellings for this week (week beginning - 2/03/2020): 

UNIT 21 - un, de, re, pre, non words

 

REMEMBER: LOOK, SAY, COVER, SOUND IT, WRITE IT, CHECK IT

 

Below is the list of spellings to be tested on :

Please practice these and complete the spelling sheet, those who remember to bring in their spellings homework will earn a House Point and Merit. Star Pupils who score 12/12 marks on their test will be awarded with House Points, Merits, Raffle Tickets and Moving up to the WOW!

We really love reading in 3A!

Fantastic Fossils

 

As part of our science work on fossils, we decided to make our own! We have a few photos of us making them.
Over the last week, we have waited patiently for them to set and the results are fantastic.

                                                 Please look at our slideshow to see our finished fossils.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

TT Rockstars update!

 

We have been blown away by the progress some of the children have been making with their timestables. We have been regularly checking who has been practising at home and the hard effort is paying off! The children are currently in the middle of a battle of the bands with 3B. We're narrowly in the lead at the moment. Over the weekend, the children are being encouraged to find a time to practise their timestables on the website as this will also help with our team battle.

 

 

An update on homework!

 

Thank you so much to all of those children that have handed some homework in already. 

I have loved seeing what you've been getting up to and the Stone Age shoe boxes are fab!

 

Just a quick note that any piece of homework can be handed in before the deadline (21.10.19).

I am more than happy to mark bits as and when as that will keep the enthusiasm for the different activities alive.

 

 

With regards to My Maths, I will continue to set different pieces that match our learning in school. When new pieces of work have been set, I will update the class page and get the children to write it in their diaries.

 

I hope you enjoy looking at some of our Stone Age shoe boxes that we have had handed in already.

Times tables knowledge: Year 3 expectations from the National Curriculum.

 

By the end of Year 3, the children need to know their x3, x4 and x8 timestables including the related division facts.

 

This will build on their skills in the x2, x5 and x10 tables.

Reading is so important.

 

We strongly encourage the children to read aloud each day to an adult. 

 

Please write a note in their reading diary about what you've read - we'd love to see a wide range of literature being read.

Recently, not enough children have been recording their reading in their diaries. Please make sure they are writing all of their reading in.

 

Please see our list of question stems below. These can be used to help build your child's comprehension skills.

Supporting your child documents

 

Thank you so much to the parents that were able to make our workshop this afternoon. 

Hopefully you found it useful and informative. We really appreciate you coming and it was great to discuss the questions that you raised.

 

Please find attached the PowerPoint that we used. 

If you were unable to make the event, please feel free to look through the PowerPoint and come and ask us any questions you have.
