Year 3 India
Welcome to India Class
Class teachers – Mrs Letman and Miss McKearney
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Setchfield and Mrs Dryland
In English, this term, we will be continuing our approach to writing. The children will be using the writing rainbow to help them to develop their vocabulary and create lots of interesting sentences. We will be working on narrative and non-fiction texts.
In Maths, we will be exploring fractions and shape.
In the 1st half of the Summer term, we will be learning all about Urban Pioneers. This unit of work involves both History and Geography. The children will be answering the following questions:
Where in the UK is Peterborough?
What landmarks are there in Peterborough?
What is the history of Peterborough?
How is Peterborough different to other cities?
What changes might happen to Peterborough in the future?
We will be taking the children on a school trip to visit various historical places and landmarks in and around the city centre.
Please see the knowledge organiser below to discover the key knowledge and vocabulary we will be learning in this topic
1. Be safe
2. Be ready
3. Be respectful
Children will need to complete TT Rockstars, Doodle and spellings each week. We are also encouraging children to read at least five times a week. When you hear your child read please sign and date their reading record.
India class will have their P.E. on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, please make sure that your child comes in their full P.E. kit on these days (including footwear). No earrings are allowed during P.E. lessons so if your child can not remove their earrings themselves can you please make sure that they arrive at school with no earrings in on those days, thank you.
Once again we are encouraging the children to read at home and there are chances to collect raffle tickets. Every time your child reads at home and get their book signed, they will receive a raffle ticket. They will also receive a raffle ticket each time they bring their reading book and reading record in to school. Please support your child in doing this. At the end of the half term, a raffle ticket will be chosen and the child of the winning ticket will receive a voucher for a store of their choice!
We are continuing to use Accelerated Reader, where children will have to complete quizzes based on their books to test what they have read.
We will also continue with our incentive where the children will win a prize every ten times they read to an adult. We will monitor this through their reading records.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to talk to one of the Year 3 members of staff regarding homework or reading.
