Hello and welcome to Year 3!
Our topic for this half term is ‘They Made a Difference’. Some people have made such a big difference in the world that their influence on our lives can still be felt today. From scientists to sports people, from politicians to musicians, from all backgrounds, countries, races and religions, there are people whose ideas or achievements have singled them out from others. This half term we are looking at some of these significant people who have touched people's lives in some way.
In Maths, we are looking at division, angles, shapes and place value. In English, are working on creative writing and building up our skills and knowledge to write an effective story.
PE for Year 3 is on Wednesdays and Fridays – please remember to send your child to school with the appropriate kit.
To aid your child’s learning, here’s what you can do at home to help:
English - Encourage your child to read daily. Reading even just a few pages each day can have a huge cumulative effect on vocabulary, writing, grammar and overall attainment.
Maths - Practise times tables and number bonds.
Topic - Discuss significant people and the effect they have had on the world. Support with research if your child wants to learn more.
Please ensure that your child takes responsibility for the weekly completion of homework.
