Year 3

 

 

smileyWelcome to Year 3's Class Pagesmiley

 

 

Our teacher is Miss Lacy. She has a pet tortoise and her favourite food is pizza! 🍕

Her favourite book is 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl because it makes her laugh EVERY time she reads it! 

 

 The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

-Dr. Seuss

 

MISS LACY'S CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK!

How many bones are there in the average human hand? 

 

 

Our topic this term is...

HORRIBLE HUMANS! 

 

We kick-started our new topic with a WOW day visit. Angela Lacy came into school to teach year 3 and 4 all about our insides!  We even used a Virtual reality t-shirt to look inside our bodies and discover more about the different systems that keep us alive. Take a look at what we learnt about the digestive system- it got pretty messy!

 

Reading

Your child is expected to read at home at least 3X per week. They are encouraged to change and return their books to the library independently using their own library cards. 

 

 

Homework

In year 3, Homework is handed out on a Friday and expected back the following Tuesday. Spellings are given out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. Your child is expected to read at least 3 times per week at home- evidence of this should be recorded in their yellow reading records with the date, the name of the book, who they read with (or independent reading) and any words that your child found difficult to read. 

 

Maths

In Maths we will be looking at multiplication and division.. 

In year 3 we cover the 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, 8X and 10X Tables. 

Here are some helpful websites for learning times tables at home.
