Welcome to Year 3
Thank you for your understanding regarding the closure of the year 3 bubble this morning. Ms Travi will be in contact with you later regarding the procedures we need to adhere to. I can confirm that the children and staff in year 3 will need to self isolate until Thursday 1st October. Until that moment we will be setting daily home learning tasks starting from tomorrow. If you wish to complete some work today, I have attached a pack that can be used and there are computing and spelling activities that have been set on Purple Mash. (Purple Mash, Accelerated Reader and MyMaths passwords are all in the front of the reading record)
We understand that this will be a difficult time but we appreciate your support during this period of home learning as it will be of great importance that your child completes daily tasks in order to continue with our curriculum. The work we are setting will be that tasks they would have completed at school.
We will ask you to submit all work completed to us via email. It is important for us to keep a record of this work and we will use it once we are back at school. Either a high quality photograph or the document itself. You can email us directly on the email addresses below but will kindly only ask you to use these email addresses during the lockdown period.
Thank you for your support,
Sarah Ledster and the Year 3 team

Spring 2 Overview
English lessons this half term are themed around fairy tales involving wolves. These may include 'The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig' written by Eugene Trivizas and 'Little Red Riding Hood' written by Jonathan Langley. These books will encourage and inspire the children to use their imagination and develop their sentence structure and writing skills. Over the course of the term, the children will have an opportunity to develop their understanding of direct speech, commas in lists and use of correct punctuation through writing stories focusing on familiar traditional tales and characters.
The teaching of reading will focus on retrieval and inference skills as well as widening their current vocabulary base. Children will begin to use accelerated reader to select books which are appropriate for their current reading level. Their reading level will be assessed half termly and levels changed in accordance.
There will be an Accelerated Reader parent workshop on Tuesday 1st October.
Grammar and spelling patterns and skills will be taught specifically in SPaG lessons whilst being integrated into English lessons. Whilst we are not sending home weekly spellings, the year 3/4 statutory list is available below and also attached to the front of your child's learning log. Please support your child in learning these in a way that suits their individual needs.
Weeks 1, 2 and 3 - Place value
Weeks 4, 5, 6 and 7 - Addition and Subtraction
100 club - In year 3 the children begin to complete a weekly times table quiz in preparation for the statutory times table assessment in year 4. They are given an allotted time of 6 minutes to complete 100 random times tables up to 12 x 12. This will carry on until the end of year 6. Whilst we understand that the children haven't been formally taught all of these times tables at present, over the course of this year and next they will have the opportunity to explore the full range of times tables in class and improve recall speed.
