Welcome to Year 3
Class Teacher: Mr Tom Watts
Learning in the Spring Term
This term, Year Three will be embarking on a quest to improve their wellbeing – and maybe yours as well! We will be learning about muscles, the human body and what nutrients we need to thrive. We’ll also be finding out more about how plants grow and reproduce to give us food then looking into where our food comes from. Alongside this, we will be looking at other ways in which we can improve our wellbeing then using what we’ve learnt to put on an event for everyone to enjoy later in the term.
We believe reading is essential to your child’s learning at Shaldon and we encourage our children to read (and be read to) at home on a regular basis. As your child moves into Key Stage Two, knowing their multiplication facts (times tables) becomes increasingly important. To help your child memorise these, we will be using TT Rockstars, an online app, to make the process more enjoyable. Lastly, we will be informally testing the children on a small number of spellings on a weekly basis so a short amount of time practising these words with your child would be appreciated.
Class 3 will have PE three times a week with our specialist PE teacher Miss Young. This will be on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please make sure your child’s PE bag is in school on these days. It is important that all items are clearly labelled to ensure that nothing goes missing. We advise that, unless PE kit needs a wash, it is kept at school as a spare set of clothes or in case time allows for other exercise on Thursdays and Fridays.
