Welcome to Year 3

Autumn Term 2021

Mrs Mr Mitchell ~ Class teacher

Mrs Yalden / Mrs Tanner~ Teaching Assistants

 

Our Autumn term topic is:

Do Materials Matter?

This is a science based topic where we will be looking at the characteristics and differences of solids, liquids and gases. We will be investigating what happens to materials when they are heated / cooled . We will be finding out about the water cycle and how evaporation and condensation are connected to this. 

 

PE

Our PE lessons this half term will be Games on MONDAY afternoons, please make  sure you child wears their PE kit in to school on those days. 

 

SPELLING

The children will have weekly spellings, along with sentences for dictation, to practise at home.

During the week in Handwriting sessions we will be focusing on practising the spelling patterns and writing our spellings correctly, using joined handwriting

 

TT Rockstars

The PTFA have again purchased a great times table package for the school called 'TT Rockstars'. There are lots of different areas the children could go into including the ‘Garage’ or ‘Studio’. The Garage is a training mode where they work through the tables (recommended) and the Studio is random questions up to the 12x12 times table. Ultimately, we hope this makes learning the times tables fun while they become more fluent and knowledgeable in their times table recall. They can also earn ‘coins’ to update their avatar rock star!

 

HOME LEARNING

Homework will continue to be sent home each Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Spelling Tests this term will be on Fridays.

 

 

RENAISSANCE READING

Most of the children are on the Renaissance Reader book scheme and they will be issued with 2 number banded reading books, 1 for home and 1 for school. Once they complete a book, they have the chance to take a quiz on that book to test their comprehension skills. We already have lots of children who are keen to complete their quizzes. I have reminded the children that the quiz tests their understanding of the book and as we are looking for at least 80%+ for a pass rate on their quiz, we always advise to read the book through at least twice before attempting the quiz and to spend time talking about the book as well as asking and answering questions. Children should be taking quizzes regularly (ideally once every week) and they should know the results of their quiz.  Remember you can register with the website and receive text/email alerts with your child's test results.

Please make sure you are continuing to read regularly with your child.

 

Water Bottles

Please ensure that your child has a water bottle in school every day and that they bring it home to be washed out and refilled. 

 

If you have any concerns, or question, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached through Class Dojo, or the school telephone number. I am also in the playground most days after school too. 

 

Kind Regards

 

Mr Mitchell

We focused on Anti-bullying as our mini-topic in Autumn term. We looked at the different types of bullying and what they mean. We have looked at ways we can help someone and what to do if you are being bullied.

We have come up with our own class definition for bullying: 

Bullying is a repeated negative pattern that makes others feel upset, unsafe or uncomfortable on purpose.

The children were fantastic in thinking about ways in which we could help others and make a wonderful environment in school!

Year Three Reminders

 

RENAISSANCE READING

 The majority of the children have moved onto the Renaissance Reader book scheme and they should be bringing home a number banded book every day. We already have lots of children who are keen to complete their quizzes. I have reminded the children that the quiz tests their understanding of the book and as we are looking for at least 85% for a pass rate on their quiz, we always advise to read the book through at least twice before attempting the quiz. Children should be taking quizzes regularly (at least once every two weeks) and they should bring home the results of their quiz ~ if you aren't seeing them please check their school bags! Remember you can register with the website and receive text/email alerts with your child's test results. Any problems ~ please pop in and see me! 

Please make sure you are continuing to read regularly with your child ~ they should be bringing their books home EVERY day!!

 

Water Bottles

Please ensure that your child has a clear water bottle, with a sports type cap, in school every day and that they bring it home to be washed out and refilled!

 

School Uniform

 

Please support us in sending your child to school in appropriate uniform and footwear.  All clothes should be clearly labelled to reduce incidents of lost property.

 

Equipment

 

Whilst children are provided with all the stationary they require, I understand that many parents wish to support their children by providing extra items.  If this is the case, can you please ensure such items are labelled clearly and encourage your child not to exchange or give away items to others.

 

Communication

 

All school events and activities are noted on the school newsletter: The Steady Eddy which is put onto Class Dojo every week.
