We are delighted to confirm that 3H will be visiting the British Museum next term. Please read the letter below for more information.

As 27th May is also Jubilee packed lunch day, the children will be able to take their Jubilee packed lunch with them to the museum. They can also add something in the Union colours to their uniform. 

If you have chosen to volunteer on your child's trip, please ensure you have read the Volunteer Policy and Application pack and that you have completed this online form. Thank you for giving up your time to join us.

New texts for Whole Class Reading, Summer 1

From April, pupils in Year 3 will be studying, 'A Poem for Every Summer Day,' edited by Allie Esiri during Whole Class Reading lessons so we are asking parents and carers to purchase the book in preparation.

 

Year 3 - A Poem for Every Summer Day 

ISBN 13: 978-1529045246

 

WH Smith A Poem for Every Summer Day

Amazon A Poem for Every Summer Day

 

If your child has a pupil premium passport we will provide your child with a copy of the class text free of charge. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you do not receive a grant but will be unable to provide the book due to financial reasons

 

Snacks

Please ensure that your child has a healthy snack for morning break. No biscuits/cake bars, crisps, or pastries.

 

Lockers.

Each child has been assigned a locker in which to keep their belongings. Children are expected to bring in their Reading Records and reading books every day. Bags must be able to contain these and these must fit inside their lockers. Any changes of clothes for after school clubs must also be stored in lockers.  Additionally, as we move towards winter, children will also need to store coats in their lockers. Please take notes of the measurements and ensure your child’s belongings can fit into their locker.

Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum 

Books going home 

TBC

English

We have created our own characters and are currently writing our own Egyptian myths. Next week we will start to edit and improve before writing out final drafts. 

 

Maths

We have now moved on to our fractions unit.  This week we are focusing on the revision of what fractions are in detail using key vocabulary such as part, whole, equal and unequal. 

 

Spelling patterns:

We will be focusing on a spelling pattern over the course of two weeks. Children will record spellings that follow this pattern, common exception words and words related to our FLCC challenge to practice in their reading records. Children will be assessed on these during dictation in the second week of our cycle.

 

Over the next two weeks, we will be focusing on the prefix super-

 

Words that follow this pattern:

  1. superpower
  2. superwoman
  3. superhero
  4. supermarket
  5. superstar
  6. superglue

 

Additional common exception words and FLCC words:

  1. extreme
  2. famous
  3. favourite
  4. meandering
  5. erosion
  6. gravity

 

Children will be assessed on these words during a dictation on Thursday 19th May.

 

Reading

Children will bring home their reading book, linked to the phonics or book band they have been assessed at. They also have the choice to select a recommended reading book or library book to share at home with you. More information about reading can be found

Once the children have read a book, it would be great if they could complete one of the activities of their choice outlined below. These can be completed in the blue book that children have been given. 

 

Activity Choices (they can be completed more than once):

1. Compare the book to another book you have read. What was similar? What was different? Think about characters/setting and events.

2. Draw a picture of your favourite character and write 5 words or phrases to describe their personality and 5 words/phrases to describe their appearance.

3. As you are reading, list any unfamiliar words and write their meaning.

4. If you could make one change to the story, what would it be and why?

5. Make a note of 3 of your favourite sentences and explain why you like them.

6. Complete a 'story S' which outlines the main events of the story.

Mathematics

TimesTables Rockstars!

TT Rockstars is an online programme we have introduced to encourage children to have fun with multiplication facts while improving fluency, recall and speed. Children can access it in their own time on any IOS, Android or Windows device.

What is it?

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice. 

How does it work?

Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of your child so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each child is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until they have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.

Where does this fit with National Curriculum expectations?

All pupils at the end of year 4 in England will take an online multiplication tables check. The national curriculum specifies that pupils at this stage should be able to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12x12.

The check aims to support pupils to master multiplication skills, which are essential for future success in mathematics. It will help to identify pupils who have not yet mastered this mathematical concept, so additional support can be provided.

How do I log in?

Log in here: https://ttrockstars.com/login, use your child's details that came home at the end of the Summer Term, lost them? Speak to your child's class teacher.

Please see the sites below for other interactive games to help your children's fluency in recalling their multiplication and division tables.

Home learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. Our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

 

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily. Teachers will have a look at these to check regular reading is taking place at home.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to Year Group  expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. Log on to Timestable Rockstars!
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

 

You will be able to see your child’s progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.
