Welcome to Year Three!

Garnet class are looking forward to a fun-packed half-term which encompasses engaging, creative learning along with a much awaited trip to the Science Museum on Thursday 23rd May 2024.

This cycle, our overarching topic is 'Creating a Better World'.

In our English lessons, we will be focusing on three incredible core texts; 'Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World' by Rachel Ignotofsky, 'Little People Big Dreams - Marie Curie' by Isabel 'Sanchez & Lifecycles: Seed to Sunflower' by Camilla de la Bedoyere.

Our topic (history and geography) focus will be split into two four-week units. First we will be studying medicine and disease before we learn about channels and their impact on the local area.

PE days this term are Wednesday's and Thursday's, so children are able to come into school on those days in their school PE kit. Our two sports in cycle 4 are Tennis (Wednesday) and Athletics (Thursday).

Our home spelling tests will take place fortnightly on Wednesday's. The next spelling test will be on Wednesday 5th June 2024. The children will receive their spelling homework the Friday after the completed test. Maths and English homework will continue to be set up on Atom Learning platform. This will alternate weekly, so there are ten questions to complete on Maths one week and then English the next. There is also a ten minute Times Tables Rockstars (TTRS) task to be completed. The homework will be given on a Monday and is expected to be completed by the following Monday. Please ensure your child is logging into his/her account and completes their task weekly. If you need support with logging into your child's account, please come and find me. All usernames and passwords are in your child's reading log.

We encourage children to read daily in school as well as at home. Please continue to support and encourage your child to read for a minimum of 15 minutes every day. Once he/she has read with an adult, we would like a parent/carer to sign the record. Every child should read 4 times a week with an adult.

Please ensure that your child comes to school every day with the following items:

A water bottle

Reading Book

Reading Record

A suitable coat (weather appropriate).

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your continuous  support and looking forward to a great half-term together. 

Mr Hill & Mrs Bowley.
