In Year 3 this term, we are learning how to read and write a range of fiction and non- fiction. This includes portal stories, writing to explain, suspense tales and writing to persuade. We will be continuing to explore a range of texts, including those written by Pie Corbett. It would help your child enormously if you could support their learning by encouraging them to read a selection of fiction and non-fiction books, poetry and plays. The children are allowed to borrow two books at a time from the Active Learning Library and we are also fairly close to both Britwell and Slough Libraries. There is also a wealth of resources on the internet.
In Maths, we will be focusing on quick recall of important number facts, such as our number bonds and times tables. The children will continue to learn written methods of calculation for multiplication and division. We will also be solving problems involving money, measurement (time, length and perimeter) and statistics. If you would like to know what methods your child is being taught, please do not hesitate to come into school and ask to meet with your child’s teacher.
In Science, we are going to be working scientifically and learning about plants. In French, we are practising useful phrases and building our French vocabulary. In PSHE, the children will be learning to discuss different goals and aspirations for the future and understanding how facing challenges are a healthy part of a person’s life. In RE, the children will be studying Chinese New Year. If you would like more learn more about the topics we are studying then please refer to the ‘Spring Term Curriculum’ Padlet.
Many thanks for all the support you give your child. It is very important that we continue to work in partnership with you to ensure they make the most of their learning opportunities.
