This Term's Topics
The RomansForces and Magnets
Welcome to year 3. We hope you have all had a lovely summer break and are excited to be coming back to school for a very busy Autumn term. We are looking forward to getting settled into a full timetable of Maths, English, Guided Reading and Phonics on a daily basis.
This term our topic is The Romans, which will include a trip to Vindolanda and The Roman Army Museum. The children have swimming to look forward to each Friday afternoon. We are going to be focusing on multi-skills in our PE lessons with a focus on throwing and catching as well as agility, balance and coordination. 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 will be revising previous learning on writing answers to reading comprehensions in a full sentences and not starting our answers with ' because'. We will be reading 'The Fatal Fire' by Terry Deary and the myth 'Romulus and Remus.
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. Your child will also have a login for Times Table Rockstars to enable to be a whizz at their tables.

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!
