Welcome to Year 3 Penguins.
This term our theme is Fairgrounds; we will be learning about the forces involved in fairground rides and designing persuasive posters and leaflets.
Your child's teachers are Mrs Lombard on Monday and Friday, with Mr Warren teaching on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Mrs Bell, Miss Scriven and Mrs House provide support to Year 3.
The National Curriculum outlines the spelling rules that children will learn in Year 3 and Year 4:
Reading: We encourage children to read a wide variety of fiction genres, as well as non-fiction. Your support at home can make a crucial difference to your child's reading progress, which in turn often has a significant effect on the quality of their writing. Encourage your child to answer questions about the text, try to predict what happens next, write a book review.......
Time tables: The government expectation is that nearly all children will be fluent in all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of their next school year (Year 4). Regular class work on the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 11 times tables this year would ideally be supplemented by quizzing and activities at home. Links to some suggestions are below. Topmarks has links to a wide variety of computer-based education resources and games.
