During the autumn term, as part of their transition from KS1 to KS2, Year 3 are encouraged to build on their independence and social skills through a variety of group, guided and independent tasks. It is important that they are supported and encouraged in making good choices.

The main topic in the autumn term will be a study of the changes in Britain during the Stone Age. Year 3 will also be investigating light and shadows, rocks and fossils in science. They will be learning about research skills, e-safety and control software in computing. In addition, they will be finding out about the significance of symbols in RE. In the autumn term, Year 3 children are given the opportunity to take part in the ‘Listen2Me’ programme where they learn to play, compose and perform music using the ukulele. The Year 3 children will also undertake a field-trip to Butser Ancient Farm in the autumn term!

Please encourage the children to make the most of home learning time by helping them practise spellings and improve their times tables.

Children have all been given a personal reading record. Please continue to support their reading development by ensuring that they read daily and fill in their personal reading record. These will be collected in on Monday – please ensure they are brought in to school daily.

Home learning tasks will be given out on a Friday and are due in the following Wednesday with any maths home learning tasks given via the ‘MyMaths’ website, for which they will have an individual login.

PE lessons will be on Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on these days – we recommend that they leave their PE kit in school so it is available each day.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Mr Wilson & Mrs Babbage (Lions) and Ms Jones & Mrs Mackie (Monkeys)
