Maths

We are adding 2 and 3 digit numbers using the written column method. Children will use place value knowledge to begin adding at ones, then tens, then hundreds.

 

Reading

We are continuing our text ‘The Sheep Pig’ by Dick-King Smith. We will look at how the author has used language and summarise what we have read.

 

Reminders

There have been some problems with children logging onto RM Easimaths to complete their home learning. If you are having difficulty, please let your child’s class teacher know. Please note that the passwords and logins DO NOT contain spaces.

 

Spellings are tested on Thursday and new spellings will go out by Friday.

 

Please remember to encourage your child to read daily (or as often as possible). It is great to see lots of children doing this already and filling in the home contact books regularly. Thank you.

Welcome to Year 3!

It has been a great start and all the children have come into school with great attitudes, ready for learning. I am sure the children will tell you about our 'Predator Attack' and searching for the clues that it left behind.

 

Reminders:

In Year 3 children bring PE kit in a separate bag to keep in school all week. Thank you if you have already sent this in, in a clearly named bag. Our PE days will be Monday and Friday.

Children will need wellington boots in school for when we visit the woodlands and allotment.

Please make sure all jumpers and cardigans are named.
