Welcome to Year 3 - Brunel

Welcome to Brunel Class!

I will be teaching your children alongside Mr Bown this year:

  • Miss Cao: Monday - Wednesday
  • Mr Bown: Thursday - Friday

Mrs Perkins will be assisting Brunel and Stevenson in Year 3 from Tuesday to Friday.

This half term we will be learning about Light: reflections, how shadows are made, what darkness is, sources of light and much more, including Diwali, the festival of light!

‚ÄčThe children will learn investigate light and dark/shadows, use rulers to measure and collect data and make predictions.

In English, we will be writing non-chronological reports and narratives to build the children's stamina and cross-curricular opportunities for writing.

In Maths, we will continue to learn the 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 times tables and become excellent at reasoning and problem solving!

In P.E. we will be focusing on gymnastics; how to create a carefully choreographed sequence with a partner which includes different ways of travelling, a roll, a jump and a magnificent counter balance. The children have already loved getting stuck in!

Spellings for this half term are:

  • eight
  • caught
  • centre
  • century
  • heart
  • breath
  • busy
  • early

Your child has written these in their Reading Diaries so please take opportunities to practsie with them.

Reading At Home

Please support your child by reading with them every evening for about 15 minutes.

Please check your child's Reading Diary for any messages we may need to send home and please feel free to add your own messages too.

Have fun learning using the weblinks to great activities you could play with your child! Don't forget the KS2 leaflet with lots of questions you could use to ask your child about their book. Questioning children about what they read about really helps with their inference and comprehension skills which are extremely important when they begin KS2.

Please feel free to ask for any ideas or if yo have any questions on how to support reading with your child at home - it is not as easy as it sounds!

This Week

We have very nearly collected all permission slips and payments for the Panto! Please make your payment and return the slip if you haven't already - this is a fantastic opportunity for children to take part in an enriching experience.

This week we have already had children lose their cardigans and items from the P.E. kits - please ensure that your child's name is written on each piece of hi/her uniform and P.E. kit.
