A warm welcome from Mrs Gibbons and Mrs Bennett!
Below is some key information about Year Three. Please visit our Class Dojo page regularly to see more up to date information specific to the weeks as they pass. Each parent/carer has access to this - pop in if you require support to view Class Dojo.
Children will receive a list of spellings to learn ready for a test every Thursday.
Children all have a ‘home reading book’ to enable them to practice reading skills, and develop fluency and expression. These books are monitored by staff every week for suitability. We expect children to read 3 times at home during the week. Please record when your child has read to you and say how the session went and alert us to any difficulties experienced.
Children will be given times tables to practice with fortnightly tests. These need to be learned as (for example)
The home school diary
Please note what homework (reading/spellings/set homework/times tables) has been undertaken by your child. Please sign the bottom right hand page each week. We award a Dojo point for completed diary pages.
This term PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. PE kits remain in school until the next holiday.
This half term's topic is:
There are so many heroes and villains in the world—who would you like to know more about? Is it someone from the past or the present? Is your hero a famous person or someone you know, like a nurse or a firefighter?
This half term, we’ll meet Cruella de Vil and interrogate her about her wicked plans. We’ll learn about her character and identify which characteristics make her a villain. We will also learn her song and compare different versions.
We are also going to learn songs about the infamous Bonnie and Clyde and write a dialogue for them. We will listen to different film music and consider how sounds are used to make a character more villainous or heroic.
We will then look at everyday heroes and think about their impact and influence.
Some of the questions we hope to answer this half term
· What features characterise a hero and a villain?
· What does it mean to be heroic or villainous and can these ideas overlap?
· What are morals and how do mine differ from other peoples?
· What is the difference between right and wrong and how can these be seen in every day life?
· How can I be the best that I can be?
· How can I demonstrate our school values?
· What targets can I set myself?
· How can we write a story with a clear beginning, middle and end?
· How is sound created and how can I alter it?
