We read a wide range of texts in Year 3 and love to read in class. Reading is hugely important to our children. Children can change their reading books daily in 3 Maple. Please ensure these are signed at home by a parent or carer. Please encourage your child to read at home regularly. Every 5 times read = a raffle ticket!
The children are responsible for choosing their own book from our book boxes.
We read daily in class together through whole class reading and have regular times to read independently using our reading corner.
Homework is set on a Friday. This will cover an element we have been learning during the week with either a maths or English focus. Homework is handed back in to mark together the following Friday. Alongside the children are encouraged to use Ed Shed, children earn points for their class by completing tasks that are set weekly we would encourage the use of Ed Shed for 15 minutes a day. Log ins will be the same as previous years and will be stuck in their reading record books.
Spellings are set on Ed Shed on a weekly basis. We also send home spelling books for written practice at home. Children will be tested weekly on these in class. Please try to use Ed Shed daily for 15 minutes as well as using the green spelling books for written practice. Spelling tests take place on a Tuesday. Please ensure green books are in book bags!
3 Maple have PE on a Monday and Thursday.
Thank you for your on-going support. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us should you need to.
3 Maple team
In PE this half term we have been working on map skills. We created our own maps using map symbols in our groups.
As part of our topic on the Roman Empire we spent a day learning about gladiators. We wrote a description imagining we were entering the arena. We made shields and helmets. We also learnt roman numerals!
We have visited Church to find out about Holy Communion. We looked at how Father Christopher would share bread and wine with the Church. We thought about the sacrifice that Jesus made by dying and discussed what we would sacrifice.
In PSHE we have been learning about healthy bodies. We looked at relaxation and stretches to help keep our body and mind healthy!
We have designed beautiful Zentangle art poppies and wrote prayers for the soldiers.
We have been enjoying our new topic on the Romans. We have been using laptops to research Roman Soldiers to write our own reports next week.
In science we have been exploring reflective materials to find out which one would be the best to use for a new reflective bag!
In English we are working on instructions. We have been using the text How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth. Today we wrote some group instructions after washing our own animals!
We have been enjoying using equipment in maths to understand place value.
