Welcome to Year 3 Moles!

Remember to Practice you 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times table as well as your weekly spellings.  

Welcome back! I hope you’ve had an enjoyable and relaxing half term break! My name is Miss Chapman, class teacher for Year Three Moles. Supporting the learning within our classroom is Miss Sacchetto.

At the start of this half term our main focus in English is to write an adventure story. Throughout this unit, we will be developing our writing by  introducing adverbs of time and paragraphs add structure to our work.  We will then move onto creating our own instructions based on our World Wide Learning topic: 'Homes under the Hammer.'

In Maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction. Children will learn how to add and subtract numbers mentally, begin to use formal written methods, alongside learning to estimate the answer to a calculation before they work it out. Following our learning on addition and subtraction, we will begin to look at multiplication and division. 

 How you can support your child at home:

 All children are given a book bag which needs to come into school every day. It is a good place to keep reading books and records along with transporting homework and important letters safely.

Reading needs to only be ten to fifteen minutes each day and should be a fun and relaxing time. Don’t worry about trying to read the whole book in one go; talk about what is happening in the story and what might happen next.
