Year 3 2022 - 2023

Miss Wainwright

This page contains some of the key information for Spring Term in Year 3. 

We look forward to continue to grow together as a class and school family. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Wrigley and Mrs Calderbank will be working in our class as a teacher, too. 

Our Spring topic is Mighty Metals! 

In Geography we will be using a variety of globes, atlas' and maps to learn more about the world before focussing on the United Kingdom and comparing Hyde with Whitby. 

Our Science learning will be about Animals including Humans and Forces and Magnets. 

In Maths we will learn about multiplication and division, length and perimeter, fractions, and mass and length. It would be wonderful to continue practicing your times table facts and the related division facts as soon as possible! Each morning we complete morning work on our K.I.R.F. (Key Instant Recall Fact).

We will continue to learn to decode and spell through First Class Phonics lessons which will be really familiar from Year 2! There will be daily guided reading sessions and we encourage you to read at least a couple of pages of your home reading book each evening with your adult at home, please make sure you bring your reading book and reading record into school each day, too. Our class novel this term is Pugs of the Frozen North by Philip Reeve.

In English we will be reading the book The Iron Man and generating a variety of written responses to this. Following this fiction unit we will then study a non fiction unit on non chronological texts. 

In R.E. our work will focus on The Sacrament of Reconciliation and Easter. This is such an exciting year for those of you who will be participating in the Sacramental Programme, as well as your friends in class who will support you along the way. We are looking forward to our class trip to The Marist Centre at the end of January to support this.

P.E. days will be Monday and Thursdays.

Homework will be sent out on Friday's and returned on Wednesday the following week to be marked. Homework will consist of spellings, a piece of English or Topic related work. There will be a work to complete on Times Tables Rock Stars as well as a piece of Maths homework.

There is plenty more information about the curriculum on our year group curriculum page

We are here to support you and your families; I am always available at the end of the day for a quick word or happy to make an appointment for a longer chat at a convenient time.
