Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Year 3 is a hardworking, friendly and motivated cohort!

Class 7 is taught by Miss Marshall and Class 8 is taught by Mrs Walker-Jones.

Mrs Baker will teach in both classes every Thursday. Mrs Dickens, Mrs Burrows and Miss Fell will also support the cohort.

The Year 3 corridor is located by the field.

English

Next half term, Year 3 will be reading a range of stories linking to our topic on ‘Ancient Egypt’. We will develop sentence structure and our vocabulary skills to write descriptive, entertaining stories.

We will also focus on our handwriting, presentation and grammar skills.

Within English, pupils will study key Year 3 spelling patterns and the Year 3 tricky words. Each week, there will be a spelling pattern to consider, learn and explore.

The Milford School Library will help us extend our knowledge of genres and authors and Year 3 will visit regularly on a Friday afternoon.

Guided Reading

Guided Reading will take place in Year 3 on a Monday morning. All children will need their reading book and diary with them on this day. Year 3 pupils will master key reading skills such as predicting, making inferences about characters and summarising events.

Maths

We will begin the year by focusing on Place Value. After mastering place value skills, we will move to addition and subtraction skills. Alongside this work, the children will continue to learn their multiplication and division facts. By the end of Year 3, pupils need to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables confidently to be secure!

Topic

We will be going back in time with our first topic ‘Ancient Egypt’. The children will study the beliefs of the Egyptians.

During transition, the children created some fabulous ‘Egyptian Sunsets’ and Masks of Tutankhamun to put up on display.

I.C.T.

Year 3 will focus on I.C.T. skills on a Friday afternoon.  Pupils will continue to develop their understanding of e safety, use key processing skills and begin to programme throughout the year.

P.E.

Class 7 have P.E. every Friday morning.

Class 8 have P.E. every Friday morning.

All children will need appropriate kit, with their names clearly labelled.

We are looking forward to a successful year!

Many thanks

Miss Marshall and Mrs Walker-Jones
