Welcome to all of our parents, carers and pupils to Year 3. Teaching Class 3AD is Mrs Dendle and Class 3JW is Mr Whitehead. We have Learning Support from Mrs Percival and Mrs Malek. This is the first year of Key Stage 2 and will be an exciting chance for the children to grow and mature as they enter this very important phase of their time in Primary school education.
This term we will be covering a wide spread of learning themes. These include our Topic work on 'Rainforests' and 'Romans' and our Science focus on 'Plants' and 'Animals Including Humans.' In English we are basing our reading and writing around the book 'The Flower', by John Light and 'Orion & The Dark' by Emma Yarlett. These will link to our Science learning on Plants and Light & Shadow. In Mathematics we will focus on place value, counting, times tables and the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
We also have a trip planned to visit 'Tropical World' in Leeds. This trip will further the children's knowledge and understanding of tropical animal life and plants.
Please be aware that we send homework home each Friday that needs to be returned no later than the following Wednesday and that our P.E. slots are Wednesday and Friday. Library books may be exchanged on Wednesday mornings. We would ask that you try to read with your child and practise time-tables or counting daily.
We look forward to working alongside you and your child in their learning this year.
Mrs Dendle and Mr Whitehead.
