This Term's Topics
The RomansForces and Magnets
All the children appear to have settled well into Y3. It is a big transition from KS1 but hopefully the fact that many of the children remember me from Y1 has made this easier. We have soon settled into a full timetable which includes, Maths, English, Guided Reading and Phonics on a daily basis.
This term our topic is The Romans, which will include a trip to the Roman Wall and Vindolanda. The children are really looking forward to swimming each week. Please make sure they have their swimming costume, goggles and a towel. Girls need to have long hair tied back and earnings need to be taken out.
This half term we are going to be covering various aspects of mathematics in a fun way. We have started our Maths learning by reading and writing two and three digit numbers in words and figure. We have then been writing the value of each digit in a three digit number and partitioning them into Hundreds, Tens and Ones.
e.g. 567= 500+60+7
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 wrote a letter to explain our hopes for the year and we introduced the topic about the Romans through the story Romulus and Remus by writing a character description of the 'She Wolf' and producing a story board sequencing 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!
Please ensure that your child has their p.e. kit in school at all times.
