Year 3 - Pearl

One term down already and what a busy one it was. This term promises to be just as busy in the run up to Christmas. As we move towards the exciting time of year when things go absolutely crazy, we still have so much to get through.

Teacher:

Mrs Olejnik and Mrs Cameron

Teaching Assistant:

Mrs Caudle, Mrs Munns, Mrs Macauley and Mrs Elgar

PPA cover:

Mr Alsop (PH sports) and Mrs Foster-Bazin (Music)

 

So what do we have planned? ‘Hold on tight’! As well as activities mentioned at the end of this letter in diary dates, both classes will be playing with traditional and magnetic games. Children will look at and evaluate how games have changed since their parents and grandparents were children (if we can remember that far back). Using and exploring magnets will link very nicely into our science topic. With the aim of creating our own Christmas decorations to sell at the Christmas Fair- we’d like to raise some money for our class!

 
We are having a real push on improving children’s mental arithmetic and times tables and will have a focus on this in school at least once a week. Can we please ask that you support us by ensuring children know their times tables and number bonds to 100, times table Rock-stars is a fun tool to use. By the end of Year 3, we aim for ALL CHILDREN to know their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables and the corresponding division facts to go with them…

 

We really do hope you find this information useful in supporting your child in their learning. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs Cameron and Mrs Olejnik
