Google Classroom Guide

Video created for parents to help introduce Google Classroom

Welcome to Year 3!

This year Miss Patterson and Mr Palmer are the year 3 teachers and we are really excited about the learning that will take place. We will be updating this page with all of the interesting things we have done in the classroom so check back to find out what we have been up to.

 

Homework

Every week the homework will be updated on this page. Homework will be assigned on a Friday, this year you don not need to return your homework books, please keep them at home. Homework will consist of spellings and timestables practice. Please use look, cover, write and check when completing the spellings and practice your timetables as much as possible. These spellings and timestables will then be done in a class spelling and timestables test every Friday. 

 

Reading

Reading records and books should be brought in on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It is important to be doing some reading every day at home. It is helpful in all areas of school life and it can help you to learn lots of new, exciting things! Please make sure to sign the reading record before bringing it in. 

 

PE.

PE will be on Tuesday afternoon so please wear your full PE kit to school every Tuesday.

 

TIPS FOR LEARNING TIMES TABLES AND SPELLINGS

 

At SJL, we set homework that encourages children to practise the fundamental skills of Maths and Literacy. If you are finding learning your times tables or spellings tricky, why not try:

  • saying times table number sentences out loud in full (e.g. one three is three; two threes are six; etc.)
  • writing inverse number facts (e.g. 48 ÷ 8 = 6)
  • writing spellings out in felt tip, sand or even shaving foam!
  • using a spelling pyramid like the one below for extraordinary

World Book Day

Royal Albert Hall musical workshop

As part of Pirate Week last week, Year 3 looked at the work of the artist, William Turner and worked together to paint and create a collage of a ship in a stormy sea.

 

Look at our acrostic poem Year 3 wrote together for Pirate Week. We tried really hard to think of rhyming words.
