Year 3 Learning Note
28th February 2020
This week… we have had a busy first week back at school. In English, we have been practising comprehension skills by exploring the mostly wordless picture book Tuesday. In maths, we have been using partitioning, known facts and multiples of ten to add and subtract. In PSHE we have looked at friendship and in art we have created some beautiful images based on the landscapes of David Hockney. In topic, we did a quick recap of the continents before learning about the European Union.
Reading for pleasure is very important and we would like you to take the opportunity to read whenever you can. Remember to get you parents to sign your reading records if they hear or see you reading.
This week we have been reading:
· The illustrated Tales of King Arthur (class book)
We will be practising the following spellings next week, focussing on words from the High Frequency Word lists as we have noticed lots of children are misspelling them. We will be testing you on Friday.

Times tables have already been sent home in your reading records. Keep practising using TTRockstars too! In class, we will be focussing on the eleven times tables.
Next week … In English, we will be working on the High Frequency Words shown above. In addition, we will be making sure that everyone is confident with capital letters for the start of sentences and also for proper nouns. In maths, we will be learning how to set out column addition algorithms before moving onto how to find the sum with this method. We will be learning about the artist Gillian Ayres in art. We will start a new animal topic in French.
It will be World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. Following on from my email to parents, we will not be dressing up this year and you should wear uniform as usual to school. You have asked if you can bring in a favourite book to school. We are happy for you to do this and we will facilitate a book gossip so that you can share your special books. . After this, we will be completing a range of activities relating to a specific surprise book as well as other book related activities in the wider school. On Friday, we will be enjoying a visit from an author.
Have a good weekend,
Mrs Easey, Mrs Kilpatrick and Miss Sparks
