Welcome to Year 3 Seal Class
National Expectations for Year 3 in English
The National Curriculum outlines the spelling rules that children will learn inYear 3 and Year 4:
Your child's teacher is Mrs Startin. The class teaching assistant is Mrs House.
PE: Children will need their PE kits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for outdoor PE.
Topic: This term, our topic is 'Fun at the Fair', involving Forces at work in Science and designing and making fairground rides in D+T. We will also be learning more about our local area and the wider world in Geography.
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.......
Spelling: We will be continuing the 'Read Write Inc Spelling' programme so please check your Read Write Inc log book and practice the spellings!
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.
