Hello, we are year 3. Welcome to our class page!

Teacher: Miss Watson

Senior teaching Assistant: Mrs Musgrave

My name is Miss Watson and as you most likely know, I am the year 3 teacher this year. Our learning journey so far has been a blast! We have been working really hard through the Autumn term and have shown lots of resilience and responsibility when adapting to a very different school life. We have lots of awesome things planned for the Spring term and we can’t wait to see how much more we can achieve together.

Spring Term

This term, we have some awesome topics to explore, including: Forces and magnets, Weather, Water and Climate and Ancient Greece!

Your children will get the chance to explore these topics in fun and exciting ways; conducting practical experiments, performing role play and using 3D technologies to enrich their experiences. All of our learning will be underpinned by high quality texts and information; we can’t wait to get started on some of our class texts, including ‘Who let the Gods out’ by Maz Evans. We will record our learning in our books, as well as the class floor book and we will make sure these are shared with you all on the school Facebook, on this website page and via. class DOJO/seesaw!

Homework

Continuing on from the Autumn term, homework will be set weekly. New tasks will be sent out on a Friday and will be due the following Friday, by 12pm. Homework will include a maths task, a literacy or topic task, spellings and reading. It is very important that your child completes their homework each week as it helps them to better participate in their in-school lessons and accelerates their progress across the curriculum. We will be continuing strive for 5, so it is important that you record your child’s reading, alongside any appropriate comments, in this record so we can log these in school. Spellings will be set on this Friday and will now be tested the following Monday. Any appropriate links to help you with homework will be attached to the appropriate pages on the homework document and TTRS log ins are stapled into reading records, so you can access this at your leisure.

PE

Our PE days will continue to be on a Monday and a Thursday. Children will need to wear their full PE kits and should bring these in at the beginning of term, and shouldn’t take them home until the half term holidays. Jewellery is not permitted in school, so please make sure your child doesn’t wear anything, including earrings, for safety reasons. This term, we are focussing on ball skills and field games (throwing and catching focus) and, if the current situation permits, we will be going swimming – I will update you on this when we know more in terms of government guidelines.

Useful links: https://spellingframe.co.uk/ – spelling frame has some free games on and word lists to help with your child’s spelling rules. https://ttrockstars.com/ – TTRS is a fantastic resource to help with times tables fluency, which underpins much of the Y3 maths curriculum. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ – a variety of maths and English games targeted for 5-7 year olds. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary – videos, tasks and information on lots of different age appropriate topics. https://www.theschoolrun.com/ – an extremely helpful website with information on for parents, explaining parts of the curriculum that you may be unfamiliar with.
