Welcome to year 3!
Mrs Larson and Mrs Hoppins are class teachers in Lions. The teaching assistant is Mrs Searle
Mrs Halley is the class teacher in Tigers. The teaching assistant is Mrs Sellick.
Year 3 is an exciting transition into KS2.
Over the year, the children will have the opportunity to go to Cheddar Caves, Taunton Museum and Fyne Court. There will be workshops in school as well. Swimming will also take place.
In the autumn term the children will have daily Maths, English and Guided Reading lessons. Each week they will also have Science, RE, History or Geography, Art or DT, Music, PE, French and P4C.
We will be learning about the Stone Age and climate alongside rocks and fossils, how to be safe online and how to use QR codes. Children will become cave painters and design petroglyphs.
Homework-we expect the children to read daily, revise known times tables and begin to learn the Yr3 expectations of 3x, 4x and 8x.
Children will continue to learn common exception words (in school and at home) and be tested weekly. Children will learn spelling rules and patterns in class.
Correct PE kit is required in school every day consisting of black shorts or joggers, red t-shirt and trainers or daps.
Year 3 is an exciting transition into KS2 and we look forward to teaching your children this year.
The children have been set Maths homework to complete (on a sheet) this half term. We expect them to continue reading, learning spellings and times tables. The children have log ins for TTRockstars, www.timestables.co.uk, Bug Club, Learning Village (bi-lingual children) and can also access Hit the Button.
Both classes have extra PE on the 4th November so please bring PE kits in.
We wish you a restful half term and see you back in school on the 4th November.
Yr3 had a brilliant trip to Cheddar Caves. The sun shone as the children explored what life was like in Neolithic Britain, from hunting to making and carrying fire! They saw a cave bear and studied some of the tools that would have been used in the Stone Age. In Gough's Cave the children discovered where Cheddar Man had been found and how the caves had been excavated. The Dreamhunter's Cave took us back thousands of years to experience how life may have been whilst facing daily challenges to survive.
