Welcome to Year 3 September 2020
Welcome to the Year 3 class page!
We have had a super Spring term in Year3, the children are all settled and have learned lots in all areas of the curriculum. This half term, we will be learning about Volcanoes.
- learn about the layers of the Earth
- know what volcanoes are
- know how and where they are formed
- name different types of volcanoes
- learn all about Pompeii
- make our own erupting volcano
In Science, we will be learning about Forces and Magnets. We will be developing our understanding of magnets by looking at each end to discover which attracts and which repels, identifying magnetic and non-magnetic materials and identifying push and pull forces.
In RE, we are going to be learning about the importance of praying and how different religions pray.
This year we will be using Seesaw, which is the class blog and Dojo team points, which is used to see how many Dojo points your child receives in class each day. You will be able to get an insight into all the exciting activities your child has been doing in school.
This half term, the children will have PE on Monday and Wednesday. On Monday the children will be going swimming and on Wednesday the children will have dance. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, children will be required to leave their PE kit in school for the full half term. Please put the kit in a clearly labelled PE bag.
Our PE kit is:
- a plain white t-shirt or a school logo white t-shirt
- navy blue shorts
- white ankle socks for girls and grey, navy blue or black socks for boys
- trainers or pumps
Please ensure your child has appropriate kit for these days, Children should not be wearing earrings for PE.
We will continue having Spanish on Wednesday and Music on Thursday.
It is really important that you read with your child as often as possible. Reading books will be sent home and must be returned to school each day in the plastic wallet provided. Please complete the reading record diary to show your child has read their book and is ready for a new one.
For this half term, homework will be set via Seesaw on Wednesday and will include spellings, times tables and MyMaths. Reading is also part of homework and we expect that children will read at least three times a week at home.
If you have any concerns or information you want to share with us, please send a message on Seesaw or Dojo and we will reply as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
