Welcome to Year 3!

We hope that you have had a fantastic summer break and are ready and raring to go.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

PE lessons will be every Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school. This should be black shorts, pumps and a plain white t shirt or Corrie PE top.

 

Homework will be sent home every Friday and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.

 

Reading books should be signed at home at least twice a week and should be in school every day, but will also be checked on Wednesdays along with the homework.

 

Please find below what we will be learning about:

Autumn 1

Maths:

In maths we will be starting our new scheme ‘Power Maths.’ We will be looking at place value (3 digit numbers) and addition and subtraction.

English:

In English our featured text will be ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. We will also be reading extracts from Stig of the Dump by Clive Davies and The Wild Way Home by Sophie Kirtley to support us with our writing. We will then write our own adventure story inspired by these texts and include some of the SPaG features we have been looking at in class.

Topic: The Stone Age

Our topic this term is The Stone Age. Through our topic we will develop our historical skills by looking at what life was like in the Stone Age, studying what we can learn about the past from artefacts and finding out when the Stone Age was by looking at timelines. We will also be looking at Stone Age Art and Craft and create our own cave paintings and analyse Stone Age weapons and jewellery including spears, axes and bear tooth necklaces.

 

Science: Moving and Feeding

In Science the children will learn that animals including humans need the right types and amounts of nutrition to thrive and grow and that eating the wrong types and amounts can lead to health problems. They will investigate some of the health problems associated with not eating well. They will learn that we cannot make our own food and that we need to eat a varied diet and list the types of food that we need and why we need them and construct a balanced food plate. They will find out that different animals have different dietary requirements and some foods humans eat may be poisonous to animals.  The children will also discuss the role of the muscles and skeleton and describe what would happen if we didnʼt have them.

PHSE: JIGSAW: COVID Recovery Program and Being Me in my World

We will start the year by completing the Jigsaw ‘COVID recovery program.’ We will look at how routines have changed in school and how to keep ourselves safe. We will also look at worries that we may have and what we can do to help. After that we will look at ‘Being Me in my World.’ During this ‘puzzle’ the children will be looking at their thoughts and feelings during new experiences. They will be looking at what makes them proud and how this made them feel. They will create their own personal and class targets linked to our Investors in Pupils and assess their progress in achieving them.

 

RE: What do different people believe about God?

In RE the children will be looking at what different people believe about God through stories, buildings and art.

PE: Games and Gymnastics

In PE the children will practice their throwing and receiving ball skills in games and also look at shapes in gymnastics.

Music: BRASS

During our music lessons the children will have the opportunity to learn how to play a brass instrument with Tameside music service.

ICT:

In our ICT lessons we will be looking at computing systems and networks.

MFL: French

Our first theme is France and its culture. We will then look at greetings and names and learning how to count up to 20 in French.

 

HOME LEARNING LINKS / IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 

Every term the children will receive a ‘Take Away Homework’ a menu of homework activities linked to our Topic. If you would like to email us your child’s homework please email to admin@corrie.tameside.sch.uk FAO Miss Wood / Mrs Lynch.

 

The children will also be set a piece of maths work online linked to their learning in class. If your child does not have access to the internet, please ask for a worksheet instead.

 

Home Reading: Reading a school book is part of your homework. Children should read at least twice week and signed by an adult. Reading books will get checked every Wednesday. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Your child’s reading diary must be signed before a new book is given and all activities completed (if applicable)

REMEMBER: all homework needs to be completed each week and handed in by each Wednesday to achieve GREEN for Homework in your Assertive Mentoring. If you hand it in on Thursday you will achieve YELLOW and after that you will achieve RED for that week.

Other important information:

  • Please ensure your name is clearly written in all your school uniform. We have a permanent marker if you need to write your child’s name in their jumper etc.
  • Please ensure your correct and full PE kit is in school all week as PE days can change in school (it will be sent home every half term to wash)
  • Bring your reading book and reading diary to school every day. Sometimes a reading volunteer will choose you for extra reading.
  • Please bring a school water bottle every day.

All the equipment you need is supplied for you in school. Please do not bring in your own pencils, rubbers etc from home.

 

We are really looking forward to a new and exciting term. If you have any questions or concerns, please book an appointment to see your child’s class teacher.

Final work packs

I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of term! I am so proud of the children and how they have coped during these strange times. I have thoroughly enjoyed being their class teacher (even if part of it was from afar) and wish them all the best on their next journey into year 4.

A new learning pack with approx 2 weeks worth of work will be ready from the KS2 reception from 8:30am on Monday 13th July. This will take children up to the end of the academic year. Reading books will also continue to be changed, but current books need to be returned in the pack with their name labelled on which will also be outside KS2 reception.

 

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is anything I can help you with using year3@corrie.tameside.sch.uk

 

Take care, Miss Wood

New home learning packs w/c 22.06.2020

We hope that you are all safe and well. We cannot believe that we are into the last term of school, of what has been a very strange year. Please continue to send us updates and pictures to the year 3 email address or school FaceBook page, as we love hearing from the children.

Each child has access to a new home learning pack, with approximately three weeks worth of work. This will be available to collect from the KS2 reception from Friday 19th June. However, if you would like to print this yourself from home, then please email year3@corrie.tameside.sch.uk to request a digital copy. We have also provided every child with a reading book pack. This contains 2 school reading books and also a book from the school library that we think they might enjoy! When you come to collect your first pack of books, there will also be an empty pack with their name on to put the books in that they took home when school closed.  Books will be changed on a regular basis, but each pack will need 72 hours before its emptied and changed to prevent spread of the virus. 

We will also continue to monitor and check reading books and work set online using Active Learn. 

For topic, please continue to complete a piece of work from the homework menu each week and share it with us via email or facebook!
