Year 3

Year 3 – Class 3LE


Teacher: Miss Elverson

Teaching Assistant: Miss Wing

 

 

In year three, Children are given opportunities to grow, learn and develop in lots of ways. We cover many subjects, including: Literacy, Maths, Science, Religious Education, Geography, History, PE, Music, French, Art, ICT, and Design Technology. This page offers information about some of the exciting things that happen in our class, but if you have any further questions, please feel welcome to ask Miss Elverson in person.

 

Literacy:

Throughout each half term, we will focus on one fiction and one non-fiction unit of work, where we will develop the way that we write. We will also cover different types of poetry and grammar rules. The wide range of texts that we use will help us to improve our reading, how we describe characters and settings in detail and the way that we construct sentences.

Some of our main aims for this year are to:

 

  • Draft and write for different purposes to develop positive attitudes and stamina for writing.
  • Evaluate and edit by proposing changes to grammar, spelling and vocabulary.
  • Begin to use paragraphs to group related material.
  • Use headings and subheadings to aid presentation.
  • Begin to use inverted commas (speech marks) to show direct speech.
  • Be able to write down sentences from memory that have been dictated to them,considering punctuation and spelling.

Maths:

In year three, we will continue to develop the children’s understanding of a wide range of mathematical areas including: problem solving, number, place value, time, money, shape, fractions and measures. We will continue to develop our fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, by using mental and written methods. Children will be given opportunities to apply what they have learned in maths lessons through problem solving and using different contexts.

 

Some of our main aims for this year are to:

  • Count from 0 in multiples of 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 50 and 100.
  • Find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number.
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones).
  • Count up and down in tenths.
  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.
  • Add and subtract three-digit numbers, mentally and using a formal written method.
  • Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including Roman numerals from I to XII.
  • Recognise right angles and whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.

A  Areas of maths focused on for each half term:

(Problem solving, fluency and reasoning are developed throughout all of these areas.)

Spellings

Spellings are given out every Friday and tested the following Friday. New spellings are stuck into their spelling book with the date that they were given on.

 

There is an opportunity for your child to receive a house point each week, by you signing your initials next to the spellings in recognition of seeing them.

Homework

Homework is given out on Fridays and should be in on the following Wednesday unless stated on the homework. (E.g, for longer research or construction pieces.)

Reading

Along with reading that takes place in the classroom, children should be reading for around 20 minutes every day at home. They should then fill in their reading record to show their understanding and feelings towards the book. For children to change their book, they must have at least one record for that book where they have read to an adult. This can be shown by the adult writing a short comment about how well they read.
