Welcome to Year 3 Moles!

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

Welcome back! I hope you’ve had an enjoyable and relaxing Spring Bank holiday! 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 a non-chronological report. Throughout this unit, we will be developing our writing by focusing on main and subordinate clauses as well as structuring our writing using sub-headings and paragraphs. We will then move onto creating our own persuasive text based on our World Wide Learning topic: 'Marvellous Mountains.'

In Maths we will be focusing on time. Children will learn how to tell and write the time from an analogue clock, estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute, alongside comparing the duration of different events. Following our learning on time, we will begin to look at geometry and the properties of shapes. 


 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.
