Welcome to year 3
Values driven learning
This half term our class text is “Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone”
The link below is a pdf of the book
In particular we will be looking at character descriptions. We will be using Talk For Writing to orally rehearse sentences and reflect upon the vocabulary used, any patterns we notice and the features used when describing others. By the end of this unit we will be using our imaginations and knowledge to produce our own in depth Character description.
Please find below an overview of year three’s curriculum for 2019/20:
At Litherland Moss we have a values driven approach to learning. Below is the ‘Rainbow Pathway’ for our current curriculum focus.
In science this half term we are learning all about Plants. Please find attached an overview of all of our science topics this year including some key facts and vocabulary that we will be learning. For this half term, look for the page entitled ‘Plants’.
PE with Joe Wicks is a great way to get the children active at home, I have also uploaded PE activity cards to Seesaw that can be used.
Weekly session ideas for athletics activities will also be uploaded.
Reading is still essential as it will continue to improve their knowledge, reading, spelling and writing. Even reading with younger siblings is a great way to get the children used to reading out loud and changing their voice for speech.
On Seesaw, I have uploaded about David Walliams who has released clips of him reading his books. I have also uploaded the link for free eBooks from Oxford Owl and free audible books.
There are some more below that can be accessed online.
Spellings and times tables can be practised every Friday.
Please practise times tables on TT Rockstars or Purple Mash.
Helping at home
Children are expected to read daily at home. Through asking your children questions about their reading, you will help to develop their comprehension skills.
If you are looking for some extra work to do at home take a look at these websites. There are a range of fun activities for you to do.
