Year 3

Week beginning: 10.05.21




In Maths this week,


This week we will work on fractions. We will learn about tenths as decimals and equivalent fractions. We look at fractions of shapes and fractions of amounts.


In English this week,


We are working on a losing tale, inspired by the book Grandpa's teeth.  This week the children will plan and write their own losing tale using their own character and ideas.


A particular feature we are working on within this unit is dialogue. It would be beneficial if you could discuss this with your child, pointing out the punctuation of speech, in your daily reading with them.


In IPC this week


We are continuing the new unit called Scavengers and settlers.  We will be learning about Stone, Bronze and Iron Age Britain and how people lived during those periods. We will look at the changes over the course of the time periods and compare the way people lived then to our modern day lives. 


On Friday 7th May, we will have another outdoor day so please make sure your child brings spare clothes and shoes to school on that day.


You can help your child... 


You can help your child by:

  • Reading regularly at home. It's good to ask them questions about what they've read too. Don't forget to write in their planner when they've read.
  • Helping them to learn their spellings each week
  • Supporting them to complete their learning log which is due in by Thursday
  • Practising their times tables. They can use the new Times Tables Rock Stars for this too. We also have a new game Numbots (with the same username and password as TT Rock Stars) to help them learn  number bonds.
