Welcome to Year 3 Moles!

Forest School until October half term.

Remember to bring appropriate clothing and footwear on a Monday!

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

Welcome back! I hope you’ve had an enjoyable and relaxing Summer 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 English is to write an innovated story based on our World Wide Learning topic 'Splish, Splash, Splosh!'. Throughout this unit, we will be developing our writing by focusing on sentence structure and punctuation by introducing the pupils to inverted commas.  We will then move onto creating our own play scripts. 

In Maths we will be focusing on place value. Children will learn how to recognise each digit in a 3-digit number, find ten more or less than a number and compare numbers up 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.
