Welcome to Year 3!
Summer Term - 11
My name is Miss Moroney and we have Janette helping in our classroom. I am so looking forward to a happy and successful year together.
PE this term will take place on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child comes prepared for PE by bringing their PE uniform which they can change into whilst at school (white t-shirt, black shorts / bottoms and black trainers).
This term we will have swimming lessons every Wednesday morning. Your child will need to be prepared with a towel, a swimming costume and swimming cap each Wednesday.
Google Classroom, Spellings and Mathletics
This term we will continue to use Google Classroom to post homework and make announcements. I will post the homework every Friday, this will be due to be returned the following Wednesday. Children will be tested on spellings and maths homework every Friday, based on the homework and what we have covered in class over the week. Children are encouraged to practice their Mathletics every week, by doing this, they can earn exciting certificates which they will receive in our awards assembly every Friday.
Children are expected to and encouraged to read everyday. Reading records will be checked every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so please encourage and support your child to read at home. Children are expected to use their reading records to write comments about the book that they are reading. Children will be able to change their books on reading record days.
This half-term, our Geography topic is 'South Africa'. Our novel of the term is 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' and we will be focusing on newspaper reports in Literacy. In grammar, we will be looking at main and subordinate clauses and fronted adverbials. In Maths, we will continue to work on length and move on to fractions later in the term. In Science, our topic will be Light and Dark.
I am looking forward to another exciting term with Year 3! If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you,
