Welcome to 3LT's class page!
Week Commencing 21.01.19
Just a reminder that homework is due in on Monday and then handed back out on a Wednesday. This time frame then allows us as teachers to check the homework efficiently and give any feedback that may be needed or time to discuss any areas with children. Homework will alternate between Maths and English each Wednesday. This week the homework that is due in is Maths and on Wednesday (23rd) English will be sent out.
Children are encouraged to work on their times tables throughout the week, additional to their homework given. Our focus for this week is the 3x table. Spellings will also be tested on Friday. The spellings are focusing on the silent 'c' when using the 'sc' spelling. The spellings this week are:
scent, scene, science, muscle, scissors, crescent, ascend, descend, fascinate and discipline.
Thank you :)
Hi everybody! Welcome back after a lovely relaxing break!
Over the next two half terms our topic is based around Rivers and Plants. Children will be making cross-curricular links between Science and Geography.
In maths we are starting to focus on different areas of measurement including; length, mass, money and time. Children have developed their knowledge of column addition further and have been introduced to the expanded addition method. Times tables continue to run through all maths lessons as starters, plenaries or verbal discussions.
In English children are starting to read the book "The River Singers" linking to our topic of rivers. Children have already produced some fabulous poetry including many grammatical features!
Homework will continue to be handed out on a Wednesday and handed back in the following Monday.
PE days are now Tuesday and Friday.

Wow! How are we into our third week of the Autumn two term? Time is really flying! The children in 3LT have been working ever so hard over the past couple of weeks.
Over the past half term we have been focussing on 'The Stone Age'. Children have developed their knowledge of how stone age people lived, what stone age people ate and also what an average day in the stone age was actually like. We were privileged to have the 'Time Zone' company come in and host a Stone Age themed day which the children thoroughly enjoyed! Thank you for supporting with contributions towards that day and also with amazing costumes!
In Maths over the past few weeks we have been focussing on these areas;
- Number and place value
- 3d Shapes
We are continuing to drive the mental recall of number bonds and times tables to support with all areas of maths learning. Children are being provided with opportunities throughout the school day to practice those areas.
PE days are now Monday and Friday for this half term. Please can you ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school on a daily basis. As it is still dry and not too chilly we will try to ensure we can still get outside for some PE sessions so please can we ensure children have warm jumpers and joggers :)

Welcome to Year Three and also to Key Stage Two!! Woohoo!!
Wow! A full week completed in Year 3, time is flying past us! A quick note this week just to say that homework has now been given out and was due back in today. If your child has not completed their homework for the Monday morning, can you please try to have it in school for the Tuesday at the latest. Spellings have also been given out and are focussing on the rule: Adding a suffix beginning with a vowel to a word with more than one syllable e.g garden (gardening) ing starting with the vowel (i).
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday.
Reading records will be checked and signed on a daily basis, children can swap their reading books on a daily basis also if they wish.
Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and will be due in on the following Monday. Homework will alternate between Maths and English each week.
PE is on a Tuesday morning with myself and Mr Williams. Please can all children bring a named PE kit and suitable footwear.
As the colder weather approaches please can children bring coats as it can become a little chilly at playtime and lunchtime.
Thank you for your support.
