Summer Term 2020
This half term, we will continue to write poems, newspaper reports and recounts. Our focus will be, to continue to write more extended pieces of work, using a range of rich and varied vocabulary and detailed paragraphs. We will continue to improve our writing with the use of co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions (if, so, when, although, because) and prepositions (inside, above, around, on) to extend our sentences. We have high expectations of handwriting and presentation, the children have started with great enthusiasm, we know this will continue throughout year 3.
Thank you for all the continued effort of lots of home reading, it really does have a positive impact on everything in the classroom. We have finally finished reading our class book, Tom Fletcher's 'The Creakers', which the children thoroughly enjoyed!. We are now reading ' The Firework-Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman. Also, we will read and post poems.
We are now using Spelling Shed so don't forget to log in and practise those spellings.
This half term, we will continue to work on Multiplication and Division, and Measurement. As always, we are still working on our times tables. The children can practise at home, especially on Times Table Rockstars. By the end of Year 3 children should know fluently, their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times tables.
This half term, we will be developing our PSHE skills.
We will continue to use a range of skills including: questioning and predicting skills; planning and conducting experiments; processing and analysing data and information; and evaluating and communicating.
Please continue to do daily exercise. We are all loving Joe Wicks and Go Noodle.
