Welcome back Year 3!

I hope you all had a well deservered rest after Halloween and are ready for a very busy and exciting half term!

Our main focus this half term is going to be surrounding the Stone Age as we investigate how the daily lives of ancient Britons change from the Stone Age to Iron Age. We will also read two interesting and wonderful books called UG and The Stone Age Boy which compliments our history focus perfectly. These two books will allow us produce some amazing instruction writing, comic book writing, narrative writing and poetry writing.

Linking to our focus on the Stone Age our science topic will be all about investigating different types of rocks such as (igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic) and we will learn about how fossils are formed over time and how they can help inform our knowledge about the past.

PE will be taught every Tuesday afternoon, meaning PE kits need to be in school every week.

Our focus this half term is all about multiplication and division as we will be looking at our 3,4- and 8-times tables. The best way to become a rock star in maths is through practice practice practice! Please use your log ins for times table rock stars and listen to our times table songs.

Homework will be provided every Friday afternoon which will be linked to any work that you have been doing in school. This homework will be expected to be returned by the following Friday; however, it is not compulsory. I will be holding a homework club on Monday break-times to speak to any children who may need extra support with their homework.

Reading is important for children’s education because it helps them develop strong vocabulary, comprehension skills, and critical thinking abilities, enabling them to excel in school and beyond. Please read with your child every week, the children will be able to receive a gold star on our reading chart if they have 3 signatures in their reading records to show that they have read at home every week. This will lead to them winning prizes for their excellent effort in reading.

Assessment week will be held the week commencing the 27th November.

The children will also begin to have rehearsals for our magical traditional carol concert which will be performed with year 4.

Thank you for your continued support with our class community and I look forward to speaking to you all at parents evening.

Thank you,
Miss King.
