Welcome to Year 3 Moles!

Remember to Practice you 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times table. 

Take a look at what we have been learning this year! 

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 Mrs Pearson.

At the start of this half term our main focus in literacy is to write a persuasive text based on our World Wide Learning topic of mountains. Through this we will be developing our writing by focusing on prepositions and using apostrophes for possession and contraction. We will then move onto writing our own story based around a mountain tale. 

In Numeracy we will be focusing on perimeter. Children will learn how to recognise and calculate the perimeter of different shapes. Following our learning on perimeter, we will be learning to add and subtract differing amounts of money.  



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.
