Year 3

Dear Parents/Guardians of Year 3 pupils,

Asalamalaykum and a very warm welcome to Year 3!

The Year 3 teachers are Ustadha Shehrazad (3B) and Ustadtha Anbrin (3A). Our intervention teacher is Ustadha Fahima.

Context for learning

This spring half term, we are looking at the mind blowing topic, "Scientists and Inventors". We shall be reading various text, fiction and non-fiction, based around this theme as a means to learn about the topic. We shall continue to build on our 'reading for pleasure' culture in the classroom by reading daily, having a weekly home-school book and accessing our online Bug Club accounts. In topic we shall be building our knowledge about a variety of scientists and inventors and how their inventions and discoveries shape the world we live in today. In Science we shall be conducting experiments to test forces and magnets.

Homework

All pupils have weekly spellings which they are expected to learn.

Homework will be set using Google Classroom and personal homework books.

We shall also be focusing on times tables: 2,3,4,5, and 10. We will also move onto 8s when the pupils are ready. This includes knowing the division facts too e.g. 2x5=10 , 5x2=10, 10 divided by 2 =5,10 divided by 5=2.  Pupils can access their TTRS accounts 24/7!

A homework choices grid is issued every half term and pupils are expected to complete homework from there, it can be found below and on Google Classroom. I hope you enjoy supporting your child with these activities and take an interest in the topics we explore in school.

Communication

Class Dojo will be updated regularly to keep you up to date with the learning, it will also be used to send out any reminders. You can contact us via the school office or via the ClassDojo app. 

P.E.

The children will be doing P.E. on Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing grey jogging bottoms and black trainers on this day. A water bottle is also needed.

With best wishes,

Ustadha Shehrazad, Ustadha Anbrin and Ustadha Fahima.
