Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

What would the skeleton of a Yeti look like?
Our topic in year 3 is 'What would the skeleton of a Yeti look like?'. This is a science based topic looking at the different skeletons in animals and humans, especially its mains functions for those animals. 


Our class book for this term is 'The Abominables' and we will be looking at different places around the world linked to the story.

P.E & Swimming
Year 3S' P.E. is on a Wednesday and Thursday and they go swimming on a Wednesday morning.  It is important that children have their full P.E and swimming kit on these days. Please make sure all sports kits are named to avoid any confusion in the changing rooms.

There will be an opportunity for children in year 3 to read everyday. It is therefore essential that children bring their reading books and diaries with them every day to help track their progress.

Everybody in Year 3 will be given a list of  spellings each week based on the spelling rule they have been learning, as well as some common exception words. 
The children will be tested on 5 of these words, chosen at random, and then will be expected to spell some of the other words correctly as part of a given sentence. This will help the children to understand how these spellings can be used correctly in writing. 



This year everyone will receive two pieces of homework a week, one literacy the other maths based, over the course of 10 weeks each term. Both will be based on work we have completed in the class and in lessons.
