Year 3 - Badgers Class
Welcome back to the second half of the Summer term. Our topic for this coming term is still 'The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China' and in Science we will be learning all about plants. Please see the topic web (below) for further information about our learning this term.
PE & Forest School
PE with Mr De Marco will this term be on Friday afternoons and we will be developing bowling, catching and striking skills through rounders. PE and Forest School will be with Mr Jones on Tuesday mornings. Please ensure that the children come into school on these days wearing their school PE kit: shorts or tracksuit bottoms (depending on the weather), trainers, school jumper or fleece. Children will need to bring appropriate clothing for forest school to change into as necessary (for this term a waterproof coat and wellington boots). Whatever the weather, all children should have a coat in school every day this term.
New homework will be uploaded weekly on a Monday on our Google Classroom page. Children have a week to complete it before new homework is set. They will be set a maths game and a link to the set of videos/word list we are looking at from Sir Link-a-lot. These can be handed in on Google Classroom. Children are also expected to participate in daily reading and there are numerous maths practice activities as outlined below.
Maths - times table rock stars can be used to help with number fluency as well as a number of online maths games which can be found by clicking here.
Reading - The children can change their school reading book as often as they wish and will have a weekly opportunity to borrow books from the school library on a Thursday aftermoon. Children should be reading daily at home, and this can include books they have at home too.
Spelling - Weekly spellings will link to spelling lessons in class based on Sir Link-a-lot. I may also give children some important topic words to look at as well.
