Welcome to Year 3 – Y3JC
Our staff for 2018/19:
Miss Chan with Teaching Assistant Mrs Saeed
Hello, welcome to Y3JC! The children have all been very welcoming and are settling into the new challenges of Y3. This term the core values we will be focussing on are aiming high and setting high expectations both in and out of the classroom. For our first topic question, ‘What do we need to survive and thrive?’ We are looking at historical events in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and the Iron Age and how they link with our modern community. We will connect our learning to our ‘Wow’ outcome at the end which will be creating a healthy and delicious soup.
We will be focusing on Aspirations and the Stone Age this half term where we will inspire children be creative and thoughtful. The book we are focussing on ‘The Dot’ by Peter H Reynolds, the themes of which teach resilience and persistence. Our focus on key SPAG skills will be broadened through starter activities and whole class modelling.
This half term we are looking at place value and getting children prepared for more complex maths. We will learn the skills then expand so children can apply their knowledge to reason and problem solve independently.
Swimming will commence after the holidays
How can parents/guardians help?
Encourage children to practise their spelling. Look, cover, write, check is an exceptional technique to support in this. Promote reading with your child at home and remember to fill in the pages read into the planner. Homework menus will be sent home for children to complete so make sure the homework is due in for the deadlines and manage their time responsibly.
I am excited for this new year and for the children to be proud of their achievements by the end of the term!
