Year 3 B - Miss Blakeman 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Year 3 


Our names are Miss Blakeman and Miss Fitzhugh. Learning in Year 3 is supported by Mrs Evanson.   

In the afternoons, we will be looking at a range of topics in our class. In History, we will be learning about the Stone Age. In Science, we will be studying rocks, soils and fossils. In R.E we will be learning about Hinduism. 

Maths 

This term we are looking at Place Value and Addition and Subtraction. 
Children should continue to practise their times tables (2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s) as this is an important skill across all areas of mathematics. In Year 3 we will also be learning our 4- and 8- times tables. 

Literacy

Those Year 3’s who are on Literacy this half-term will be taught by Miss Blakeman. 
Our first writing task will be to write a set of instructions, inspired by our class text ‘The Snow Dragon’.

Read Write Inc.

Those year 3’s who are on our Read Write Inc. phonics programme this half-term will be taught by either Miss Fitzhugh or Mrs Evanson. 

Your child will bring home books every Friday to share with you. Please support them by listening to them read and asking questions about what they have read. They might also enjoy teaching you the sounds and words at the front of the story books. These books need to be returned to school each Thursday.

There will be a charge of £2 for lost or damaged books.

Art

Children receive weekly Art sessions on Fridays led by Mrs Walsh.

PE

Our PE days are Wednesdays (with Miss Blakeman and Miss Fitzhugh) and Fridays (with Mrs Adamczyk).  

Please make sure that your child has a named kit, which includes black pumps or trainers, black shorts and either a green or white t-shirt. Long hair needs to be tied back. Children will not be able to borrow spare PE kit at this current time.

All earrings need to be removed before school or the lesson for PE sessions. Where ears have recently been pierced, it is essential that children have their own plasters from home to cover their earrings. This needs to be done either at home or by the child themselves. This is in line with the school policy. 

Attendance

Excellent attendance is vital for helping your child to achieve their full potential. Please ensure your child is in school promptly at 8.40am. 

Year 3 finishes at 3.15pm and children continue to be collected from classrooms at this time. 

Home learning

Spellings will be given out every Monday to be practiced at home for a spelling test on Friday.  

Parents are encouraged to read with their children every day to support progress in reading and to help nurture a love for reading.
