Year 3

This Week's Learning



 We will start the week by editing our unaided writing about the Star in the Jar. Once this is completed we will begin our exciting new text, The Journal of Iliona.  We will be learning about the shape and structure of a diary and having an experience day to find out more about the gladiator arena. 



 We have adapted our Love of Reading sessions to include more comprehension work where we will instruct children in the fine arts of reading comprehension. This week we are looking closely at the vocabulary used in texts and thinking why the author chose that word.  Remember to keep practising your reading on Reading Plus.

We will be looking at finding fractions of numbers and finding equivalent fractions.  



For the next few weeks we will be learning about:

The Creation Stories.

 This week we will be learning about light. We will explore how light travels from a light source and look at how the light from the sun is beneficial but can also be dangerous.

 In Year 3 we cover a range of interesting and exciting topics including The Stone Age, The Romans, Volcanoes, All about Forces and Magnets, Light and Animals including Humans. We take great pride in making sure we make all our lessons fun and exciting for you. If you are lucky you may even get to make your own slime, volcanoes and Roman shields and jewelry.



We have now introduced a reading session called DEAR.

Drop Everything And Read.


This will happen once a week at an unknown time. Everybody in school, including teachers , will stop what they are doing and read. This is to help build up reading stamina and help all the children to focus.


Why don't you practice at home?  It will help to establish reading as an essential part of learning for life!
