Welcome to all of our parents, carers and pupils to Year 3.
Teaching Class 3 Titus Salt is Ms Iqbal and Mrs Shaw. Teaching Class 3 Samuel Lister is Mrs Sattar. Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Devi, Mrs Wilford and Miss Kittson. Our 1:1 LSA's are Mrs Morris-Hughes and Miss Ibraar. 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.
Our topic this term is 'Light it Up' where we will be learning about the different sources of light, how light travels and how shadows are formed. We will also learn about why light from the sun is dangerous for the eye and how to protect ourselves. In History, we will be learning about how the Romans invaded Britain and how it affected Britain. In English, we are basing our reading and writing around the book 'Orion and the Dark'; this links in well with our Topic. We will be focusing on writing an adventure story in detail using expanded noun phrases, simple conjunctions and prepositions. For non-fiction, we will be writing an historical recount about Julius Caesar in our cross-curricular work. In Mathematics we will focus on Multiplication and Division, Geometry and Fractions. We will develop fluency within these areas and begin to apply our learning by solving a variety of problems including reasoning and problem-solving.
As part of our Physical Education curriculum, we will be going swimming on a Friday morning to our local sports centre this year. Please ensure your child brings a swimming kit, including a towel, every Friday. We are also focusing on Football skills this term.
For homework, we would ask that you try to read with your child and practise timetables or counting daily. For our topic homework please see the separate section for ideas.
Year 3 are also visiting Nell Bank this term as part of the Linking Schools Project. This will be the first time where we will meet other Year 3 children from Menston Primary School. We are very excited!!
At the end of this half term, we will be inviting parents to join us, where all the pupils will have the opportunity to share their learning.
Ms Iqbal, Mrs Sattar and Ms Shaw.
