Welcome to all of our parents, carers and pupils to Year 3.
Teaching Class 3 Titus Salt is Ms Iqbal and Mrs Khan. Class 3 Samuel Lister is Mr Hynes. Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Devi and Mrs Wilford. 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 'Saving the World' where we will be learning about Rainforests around the world and our Science focus is on Plants. In English we are basing our reading and writing around the book 'The Flower'. This links in well with our Topic. We will be focusing on setting description, re-telling a narrative and incorporating some non-fiction writing such as instructions and explanations. In Mathematics we will focus on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction and some Measures. We will develop fluency within these areas and begin to apply our learning by solving a variety of problems including reasoning type.
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 also have a Rugby coach from Bradford Bulls working with us every Thursday afternoon for this term developing on the skills taught in Year 2. Our other P.E. slot is on a Monday morning.
For homework we would ask that you try to read with your child and practise time-tables or counting daily. We will also be giving out weekly spellings for the children to practise at home. For our topic homework please see the separate section for ideas.
We look forward to working alongside you and your child in their learning this year.
Ms Iqbal, Mrs Khan and Mr Hynes.
