Welcome to the Year Three page!
On this page, you will be able to discover what your child has been learning about in class. We hope you enjoy and share these experiences with your child.
In our first unit for Literacy, we will be looking at narratives. We will look at the book 'The Stone Age Boy' as a stimulus. The children will look at how character and setting description is used within the story and they will have a go at writing their own examples. To make our writing more exciting, we will use a range of sentences and conjunctions in our writing. The children will also think about how paragraphs can be used in their work. They will apply these skills when they plan and write their own Stone Age narrative at the end of the unit.
The first unit in Maths is Place Value. This will include counting in 4s, 8s, 50s and 100s. The children will be partitioning 3-digit numbers into hundreds, tens and units which will help with mentally adding and subtracting hundreds, tens and ones. Following on from this, they will also look at ordering numbers and estimating quantities.
Each week, the children will complete a Maths skills sheet which looks at using formal written methods of column addition and subtraction. It will also include times table and division questions. This will also help them with their arithmetic tests.
Our topic for this term is 'The Stone Age'. The children will be learning about the Stone Age and the Iron Age. They will explore everyday life and look at their clothes, food, houses and weapons.The children will design and create their own Stone Age necklace using clay. They will think about what change took place over the time periods and even compare it to what life is like today.
We will also be learning about Stonehenge and will visit this site later this term. The children will use measuring and shape to make their own miniature Stonehenge.
All Homework will be given out on a Friday and due back in on a Thursday. If your child has not completed their homework by this date they will do it in Homework Club at break time.
Weekly spellings will also be given out on a Friday and their spelling test will take place on Thursday.
Every week your child will be given a times table Maths homework to complete on Times Table Rockstars.
Each week your child will be given either a My Maths Homework (accessed online) or a Literacy base homework; these will alternate.
