Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

We hope you had a wonderful summer and are as excited to return to school as we are! You are now in Key Stage 2! We are looking forward to welcoming you into Year 3. We are sure it won’t take you long to settle back into the school routine. We are going to have a fantastic year getting to know each other and learning about lots of interesting topics. Working in our class this year will be myself (Miss Pruszewicz), Mrs Snadden and Mrs Ahmed. We can’t wait to get to know you all and begin our new adventures together.

See you soon!

 


WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 13 September 2021

 

In Maths this week, we will continue looking at the place value of 3-digit numbers. We will also be looking at finding 1, 10 and 100 more/less than a number. Finally, we will also focus on comparing numbers up to 1000.

Please continue to use the White Rose place value booklet, which we sent home last week, to help you to practise what you have been learning about in class.

By the end of Year 3, you are expected to know the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. It would be fantastic if you could practise recalling these at home. Here are some useful websites you may wish to use to help you to learn them:

Timestables.co.uk: https://www.timestables.co.uk/

Hit the Button: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Super Maths Bowling: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/504/Super-Maths-Bowling-Multiplication

Loop cards: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=loopcardsv6

There are also lots of useful times tables activities on Purple Mash. If you do not know your login details then please ask, and I can give them to you.

 

The multiplication times table check on Purple Mash is a fantastic activity to use to help you to improve your recall speed. This will be really useful in preparation for the Year 4 times table test.

 

In English, we will be looking at the key features of narratives with a moral. We will box up our model text to help us to learn from its structure. We will also be learning about how to punctuate direct speech. You may wish to look at the following website to recap the learning in class about inverted commas: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn37wnb

 

 

The comprehension text for this week is ‘Building Stonehenge.’ Please read the text and then complete the questions on page 5 in your CGP English Comprehension book. Please bring your comprehension book into school next Monday (20/9/21).

 

 

 

 

The spellings we are focusing on this week are: accident, accidentally, actual, actually

Please practise these at home. You will be tested on all the words on the Year 3/4 word list each half term.

 

Many thanks for your continued support.

Miss Pruszewicz, Mrs Snadden and Mrs Ahmed
