This Term's Topics
The RomansForces and Magnets
All the children appear to have settled well into Y3. We are very settled into a full timetable which includes, Maths, English, Guided Reading and Phonics on a daily basis.
This term our topic is Climates around the world, which will include a trip to Whinlatter Forest. The children really enjoyed swimming each week. We are now focusing on tennis in our PE lessons. Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school throughout the week!
We have started a new maths scheme called Maths No Problem which involves using lots of practical methods and abstract resources to aid the children's understanding of maths. Children use a greater number of resources and are improving their mathematical vocabulary daily.
In English we have been revising previous learning on writing answers to reading comprehension in a full sentence and not starting our answers with ' because'. We have been reading 'The Ice Palace' by Robert Swindells. Children have been getting creative around the book writing poems, letters and even acting out scenes from the story.
The children will also be given logins to Learning Beck, these logins can be found on your child's reading diary. On Learning Beck children can play on many different educational games.

Spellings & Homework
To support work in school the children can choose one activity to do every fortnight from their homework grid.
Children will also need to practise their spellings and write each word in a sensible sentence. The spellings that the children will be tested on will have the same spelling rule as the ones your child has learnt for homework. Spellings and times table homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be completed and returned by Wednesday.
If you have any problems do not hesitate to ask for help.
Remember to keep reading nightly and signing your child's reading diary. This has a massive impact on their progress at school.
You can now email your child's homework to us @ firstname.lastname@example.org we look forward to receiving this!
