This term our topic is:
How Far Can You Throw Your Shadow?

Welcome to Year 3 - Dove Class!

This half-term we will be exploring the book 'Lotte's Magical Paper Puppets' by Brooke Hartman. The topic for this half term has a Science focus and the children will be taught to:

  • recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light
  • notice that light is reflected from surfaces
  • recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes
  • recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object
  • find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.

Welcome to Year 3 Dazzling Doves

Homework

In KS2, children will be asked to complete the following pieces of homework on a weekly basis: 

  • Times Tables Rock Stars (3-4 mins per day)
  • Read at least 3 times a week
  • Spellings once a week

In addition to the above, you may be asked to complete topic-based homework such as a piece of art or conduct some research at home. When this happens, your class teacher will post instructions via the class Dojo page. 

 

Times Tables 

Every child in Years 2-6 have their own Times Tables Rock Stars log in which can be accessed via: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth. It is recommended that they take a little and often approach, aiming for 3-4 minutes, 5 times a week. The children will be rewarded with certificates- if they earn them- every Thursday. In order to move up to a new Rock Status, they need to play on ‘Studio’. After every 10 games, a new average score will be calculated which may lead to a change in their status.

Our focus is on the 8 times tables this half term.

Reading 

Your child will bring home a book banded book in addition to a library book. The book banded book gives you an indication as to where your child is in terms of age related. By the end of Year 3, ideally your child will be on ‘brown’ book band. The children do not need to wait to be told to change their books, they may do so when they see fit.

 

 

Year 3 will have P.E. on Mondays. Please ensure that your child comes to school dressed in their PE kits. Earrings should be removed at home or a letter obtained from the office if ears are newly pierced. 

The value of the month is Teamwork and we will be having dedicated assemblies on the value of the month.

PE will be Monday mornings. Please send your child in PE kit.

Please check Class Dojo regularly for updates, photos and information.
