Class Information

Class Teacher Mrs Curtis





We continue to use the 'Teaching for Mastery' approach as our foundation for learning and this half term we will be focusing on angles, time and multiplication and division.

Children should also be learning their times tables so any support you can give them for this would be useful. By the end of Year 3 they are expected to know multiplication and division facts for 2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x and 8x tables. We will be launching Times Tables Rockstars in school to help children to improve their times tables and to battle their friends! More details will be coming back with your children at the beginning of this half term to show you how to log in at home.


Children should be reading either independently or with someone at home every day. They all now have our new Guided Reading books which we are looking at every day and will soon be doing some special competition activities which will be entered into our whole school Book Awards.






We will continue to use 'Read, Write, Inc.' as our spelling scheme.  Children will be taking part in fun, interactive spelling lessons for 20 minutes 4 times a week.   All children now have a 'book' of spellings for the half term. Spellings are tested every Friday morning.




Topic Work

This term we are focusing on Mountains and Volcanoes. We have looked at how the earth is formed and how mountains are created and made a fabulous world map to show the different mountain ranges across the globe.

This half term we will be focusing on volcanoes, where they are, how they are created, and no doubt having a go at making one erupt.

There is a fantastic website you can use at home to show your children more about volcanoes and to have a go at making one erupt. Have a look at https://www.cosmeo.com/braingames/virutal_volcano/index.cfm?title=Virtual%20Volcano if it has sparked your child's interest!
