Welcome to Year 3 - Dove Class!
During Autumn 1, we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks. Our main enquiry question is 'Why were the Ancient Greeks ruled by their Gods?'
Each week, we will focus on a different aspect of the topic including the different Greek states (Sparta and Athens), daily life in Ancient Greece and the Greek Olympics.

In Key Stage 2, we ask that the children read to someone at home every day for 5 minutes. The reading may consist of a variety of texts, from novels, to recipes, newspapers and even football programmes!
We ask that a record of this is noted in the children's reading record books. Star stamps will be awarded on the chart inside the front cover. These then add up to star reader certificates and further rewards.
Children have now all got their own username and password for our online Bug Club. You child can access online books and complete comprehension questions to win coins for their page!
Reading is an essential area where practice at home really pays off!
Your child will continue to be given up to 10 spellings to learn and practice in their Spelling book each week. These will be now be tested on a Friday, when new spellings will also be sent out. Please help your child to learn the spellings at home and send their Spelling book to school every Friday.
Homework will be set every Friday via Class Dojo/Seesaw. Paper copies will also be available and will be sent home in your child's folder. It will be linked to the work we are doing in Maths and it should be submitted by the following Friday. It would be great if you could please also encourage your child to have a go on 'Times Tables Rock Stars' at home.
We now have P.E. in school on Tuesday Morning. 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.
This half term the children will be focusing on 'Caring' and 'Forgiveness'. The children will be discussing these values in assembly and within class.
This half term the children will be looking at 'Beliefs and Questions'.
I thank you for your support and cooperation and look forward to having a wonderful and successful year with both you and your children.
