Welcome to Year 3 Moles!

Remember to Practice you 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times table as well as your weekly spellings.  

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 Miss Sacchetto and Mrs Passman.

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 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.
