Welcome to Year 3 Beavers!
Remember to practise your spellings and 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables regularly.
Welcome back! I hope you’ve had an enjoyable and relaxing half term break! My name is Miss Brown, class teacher for Year Three Beavers. Supporting the learning within our classroom is Mrs Pearson and Mrs Hodgkin.
During this half term our main focus in English is to write a persuasive text based on our World Wide Learning topic, 'Marvelous Mountains!'. Throughout this unit, we will be developing our writing by using clear paragraphs to structure our persuasion and prepositions of place to describe Mountainous regions. We will then move onto creating our own letters based on the book 'Fly Eagle Fly' by Christopher Gregorowski.
In Maths we will be focusing on properties of shapes. Children will learn how to recognise angles, identify horizontal and vertical lines as well as draw and make 2-D and 3-D shapes. Following our learning on shapes, we will begin looking at Mass and Capacity.
How can you help at home?
In Year 3 we encourage children to read books daily. This can 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. Children will be provide with a book bag, which needs to be brought into school everyday, this is a good place to transport things such as homework and letters. We would appreciate your help and comments when you listen to your child reading. The books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays.
It would also be beneficial to your child to encourage them to practice their maths passport targets at home. There is a link for these on this page.
