Year Three

Dear families,
I hope you have had a lovely time over Easter- we look forward to welcoming the children back to school.  This is just a little bit of information about home work, reading and spellings for the term ahead.  All of this information is on Google Classroom too- we would like children to continue to feel familiar with this platform in case of any future closes (which, fingers crossed, we hope won't be the case!).
Our topic in Year 3 for this half term is all about the ancient Maya and you can find our homework/learning log tasks below.  I have also set My Maths activities to complete each week and will remind the children about our subscription to TT rock stars, which is a fun way for them to practise their times tables.
Please continue to encourage your child to read little and often- asking them to summarise/explain about what they have read is a good way of checking their understanding. Our Oxford Owl subscription provides extra reading/free books- class log in details below.
The spellings we are learning will be shared each week- we do a short spelling test on a Friday.
Our PE days for this half term will be a Monday (Newcastle United Foundation) and a Friday so children need to come wearing sports bottoms and trainers preferably.
Finally, an unrelated reminder- school photo day is this Tuesday 13th April.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Best wishes,
Mrs Graham 
How fabulous are these wintry poems? Year 3 are amazing poets in and out of school.  Well done!
We would like to share some of the fun things we've done so far in Year 3 and we will add to this album as the year goes on...
