Year 3 Information: Spring 2

 

Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a lovely half term break! I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some information about this half term. 

 

Maths

In maths we are focusing on shape, statistics, addition and subtraction, fractions, position and direction and time. 

 

Writing

We are using Charlie and The Chocolate Factory as a stimulus for writing: diaries, instructions and factual reports. 

 

Science

In science we are continuing our work on forces and magnets.

 

History

In History we will be learning about the Maya and the Mayan Civilisation.  We will be looking at different aspects of the people’s lives including religion.

 

RE

R.E topic this half term is ‘Why are festivals important to religious communities?’

 

P.E.

P.E is on Monday and Friday. Therefore, children should have their labelled P.E kit in school on these days.

 

Homework

Reading

Your child will read to an adult at least twice week in school but are also expected to read at home. Also, I would kindly ask if your child finishes their library book at home, could you make a note of this in their reading planner. This will allow them progress to another book.

Maths

Please practice the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables with your child at home.

Research 

This half term I will be looking for research about our science (forces and magnets) and/or history (the Mayan civilization).  Children are encouraged to do research every week.  As soon as your child has completed a piece of work in their research book they need to put it into the research box in class.

Tues Drop In’s

Every Tuesday I have organised a drop-in for parents. This will allow you to have a look at your child’s work and achievements. This will be in the year 3 classroom and will run from 3:30 – 3:40.

 

Thank you, Miss Bovingdon
