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 Summer holiday! 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 innovated story. Throughout this unit, we will be developing our writing by focusing on using conjunctions to extend our sentences as well as introducing inverted commas.  We will then move onto creating our own play scripts based on our World Wide Learning topic: 'Splish, Splash, Splosh.'

In Maths we will be focusing on place value. Children will learn how to recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundred, tens and ones), find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number, alongside developing a secure understand of the order of numbers to 1000. Following our learning on place value, we will begin to look at addition and subtraction.

 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.

Encouraging your child to practice their maths passport targets at home. There is a link to these on this page.
