Green 2021 - 2022

Mr Robinson

Welcome to Green Class

We are a Year 3 class taught by Mr Robinson, supported by Mrs Inskip, Miss Grindley and Mr. Richards.

This is what we will be learning in the Autumn term:

 Maths: 

In year 3 there will be a huge emphasis on learning the times tables as they will be tested by the end of year 4, they should be able to recall all the times tables up to 12. We will be using the online Timestable Rockstars website to help us and completing daily tasks in school. Please help your child by practising them at home. You will be able to find a link to this on the school website.

We will also be focusing on place value, representing, comparing, ordering numbers to 1000 by using part whole models. These key skills will help with the addition and subtraction of three digit numbers. We will be applying to answer real life problems.

English:

We will begin the year looking at the story The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We will be writing an explanation and narrative writing focusing on paragraphs. We will learn about conjunctions, commas in a list and write our own kennings.

We will be focus on joined up handwriting, sentence structure, paragraphs and using full stops and capital letters consistently.

However, our biggest focus will be on reading as it is fundamental to your child’s wider academic development. Therefore it is crucial to read to and listen to your child read a broad range of texts. It is even more vital to read to them this term after a protracted absence from school. Please read 5 or more times a week whilst asking questions about the text to help improve their comprehension. Please go on Bug Club as there are books ideally levelled at your child’s ability with questions for them to answer.
