Year 3 (Bramley) 2020 - 2021
Year 3 Class Teacher
Dear Parents/Carers and Children,
A very warm welcome to Bramley Class and KS2. I am very eager to start the year and get to know all of you for the exciting year ahead.
We will be covering a gripping array of topics, evolving what we already know and venturing into new areas of the curriculum as the children embark into year 3.
We begin this year delving into the lives of the Twits. We will be focusing on language skills, pushing vocabulary and exploring punctuation and its wide usage. This year we will be covering many different books and genres, and I hope you will continue supporting your children’s learning by doing the same at home.
In maths this year we will look on building on prior knowledge to inform the learning this year. We will look at a series of methods to get the correct answer to a question, ensuring your child is competent and ready for the mathematical challenges that await them. We will be covering: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions. Please continue to work with your children at home and practise what they have learnt and will be learning throughout this year.
Rocks and what they’re made of, used for and feel like is our first topic, we will look at fossils and rock formations as we partake in a ‘rocky’ journey through time. After half term we will be looking at light and reflective surfaces – we’ll be exploring ways to use light and exploring the world of shadows.
Our topic lessons begin with Geography and the UK, we will be exploring mountains and rivers, monuments and counties, taking leaps through time and predicting what’s to come.
In the latter half term we will be looking at the stone age to iron age, feeding into our previous topic of the UK, we will see how life in Britain has changed and what happened in the thousands of years previous.
Our computing sessions will begin with looking at internet safety and diving into the world of coding. Alongside our classroom learning I encourage you to use Sumdog, Education City and Times Tables Rockstars, this will inform the learning we are doing in class and help the children learn through games.
Outdoor learning will be pivotal this year and our PE lessons are no exception, the children will be introduced to many games and activities honing their skills and competitive natures this year, from running laps to dancing the world of sport awaits them.
This year the children will not be changing into PE kits, can I ask that all children wear sensible clothing on the days we have PE, this will include not wearing any jewellery that will hinder sports or potentially cause injury.
Our homework goes home on a Wednesday and returns on a Monday. We also complete our spelling tests on a Monday morning.
This year homework will be sent through Teams and books. (I will spend time teaching them how to use Teams properly and appropriately).
Your children are expected to every night where possible.
If you have any questions or worries, please email me or you can make a book and appointment with our office staff.
Mr Jennings & Mrs Popplewell
