In Wembley Park, this half term will be focussing our writing on the book 'Bill's New Frock'
The children will be writing diary entries and writing their own version of the story by changing the characters and settings.
We’re doing a lot of reading at the moment in class, including radical reading which is reading anything but your school reading book! This could include leaflets, cereal boxes, maps, advertisements- if you have anything at home please feel free to bring it in. We are also trying to encourage the children to read more at home, so if you catch your child reading, please write in their Home school books and they will be rewarded with a marble!
Children will be having a weekly spelling test, this will be done on a Monday, with new words given out each week. Children will be given words based on their spelling ability- these will either come from the Year 2 Common exceptions words or the Year 3 and 4 Spelling word list which you can see below. Please encourage children to practise these at home as this will help greatly with their writing. More marbles will be up for grabs!!
This half term in Maths, we will be working on addition and subtraction strategies and being introduced to the column method and As always, we are still working on our times tables. If you can practise at home, especially on Times Table Rockstars- which I have put a link below. By the end of Year 3 children should know fluently their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 times tables.
