Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

 

 

 

 

 Home Learning During COVID-19 School Closure 

 

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Here you will find some activities and resources to help you with your child’s learning at home.

Each home learning grid consists of 10-15 learning tasks. I would recommend completing one task from each grid per day e.g. choose one Maths, one English and one Curriculum task to make a total of three tasks per day. Each grid should take around two weeks to complete. Some Maths tasks can be repeated as they require you to practice key skills. 

Also, below you will find some links to recommended websites to enhance your child’s learning. These are updated regularly.

I hope you find them useful, enjoyable and easy to use. Whilst at home, make sure you have fun but also use this opportunity to learn from home.

 

Stay safe and take care,

Mr Higham

Regular Home Activities

 

Reading: Reading is such an important skill and is vital in every subject! Year 3 is a year when children have the potential to make great progress and gain a good level of reading fluency.

Making this progress is hard work but it's best to do a little and do it often. Therefore, we encourage all children to read every night for around ten minutes.

 

'The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.' - Dr. Seuss.

 

 

Homework: Maths and English activities will be given out every Wednesday. These will relate to work covered in the previous week or work which will be covered in the week to come, so it's very important for consolidating learning. It should be handed in the following Wednesday, so children will have a week to complete it.

 

 

Times Tables: Times Tables are the Maths equivalent of what reading is to English! A good knowledge of Times Tables gives children a deep understanding of number and gives them the skills needed to problem solve effectively. They are really important for every topic within Maths, and other subjects too!

It is important that children are fluent in their Times Tables. Children should know the 2, 5 and 10 times tables when they come into Year 3 and our aim by the end of Year 3 is to be fluent with the 3, 4 and 8 Times Tables as well!

 

'Maths is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms: it is about understanding.'

 

 

Spellings: Good spelling greatly improves the level of children's writing. Through Year 3 we have some tricky spellings to learn which we will work on together in school, putting them into context and trying to deepen our understanding of word formation and meaning.

Children will be given spellings to learn every Friday and will be tested the following Friday, so work on these spellings at home goes hand in hand with our work in school.

 

Dojos

 

News and updates are posted on our Year 3 Class Dojo page. If you don't have a Class Dojo log in, please ask Mr Higham!

 

PE

 

Year 3 have PE twice a week: Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have their PE kits in school at all times. They will be taken home every half term to wash and bring back.

 

 

 

Trumpets

 

In Year 3, we are very fortunate to have Mr Fogg coming in to our school to teach us the trumpet. We have our weekly trumpet lesson every Tuesday morning throughout the whole school year.

 

Children have been allocated a school trumpet and they will be taken home for the first time around the October half term.

 

Once at home, Mr Fogg recommends practising at least 4 times per week. This practise will help to embed skills learned during our lessons and also will prevent the trumpet valves from ceasing up due to not being used. This will cut down the time Mr Fogg has to spend each lesson fixing ceased up valves and will therefore increase the quality teaching time the children will have each week, increasing their enjoyment of our trumpet lessons.

 

Please ensure trumpets are brought to school every Tuesday morning. If your child forgets to bring their trumpet, they will have to sit through the lesson unable to play because the school, unfortunately, have no spare trumpets.
