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 summer break! My name is Miss Brown, class teacher for Year Three Beavers. Supporting the learning within our classroom is Miss Upshon and Mrs Wilson.

During this half term our main focus in English is to write an innovated story text based on the text we will be reading 'The Storm Whale' by Benji Davies. Throughout this unit, we will be developing our writing by using clear paragraphs to structure our story and we will begin to learn about inverted commas and how to use them correctly to show speech.  We will then move onto creating our own plays based on the book 'The Snail and the Whale' by  Julia Donaldson.

In Maths we will be focusing on place value. Children will learn be recognising and representing numbers up to 1000. Following our learning on place value, we will begin looking at addition and subtraction. 

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.
