Year 3 Team

Class teachers: Mrs Ormandy / Miss McGuiness

Support Staff: Mrs Judge

The boys and girls of Yr3 settled into life in the juniors really well and we are very proud of all the hard work and effort they are putting into their work. 

We have lots to look forward to this term.  We have our production of ‘Nursery Land Revolution’ that we will be performing. 

We are also looking forward to a visit to St Chad’s Church to see the Gaia ( a large scale replica of the earth ) artwork display.

Also this term, Yr3 will be going swimming for the first time.

See below for the work we will be covering this term.

Spellings:  

The children will continue to be given spellings every Monday to practise and they will be tested on a Friday. 

Times tables:

We encourage children to practise times tables and use TTRS (Times Table Rockstars).   The focus will be on 3, 4, 6 & 8 times tables in Yr3.  We encourage the children to go on to ‘studio’ as this earns them the most points.  We would love for all of our children to get their names onto the rockstar display board!!

Homework: 

The children will continue to be set work on Mirodo.  There will be a Maths task and English task set every week.  We will be able to monitor their progress online when they submit their work.

Reading Books

We encourage you to please read at home as much as possible with your child.  Their books will be changed as and when returned but we do recommend they change their books weekly unless their book is a longer text. 

Thank you for your continued support!!
