Year 3

Welcome to Year 3  - Croeso i Blwyddyn Chwech

 

What an exciting start we have to our brand new term, where we are literally launching ourselves into our whole school 'Blast Off' topic. 

 

We have a term packed full of  learning from fun STEM  lessons dropping objects into flour to make craters and designing and creating something to help with the safe re-entry of an object to earth. We will be using our creative thinking to make our own alien and develop our mathematical skills across the curriculum. We will develop our team building skills and promote a healthy body and mind . 

 

We will be studying the novel by Lou Treleaven "Homework on Pluto"  in order to have a funny read about space travel and use as a stimulus for our reading, writing and oracy work.

 

Games will take place on a Monday and PE on a Wednesday and we ask that children wear their P.E kits into school on those days.

 

Reading books can be changed on a Monday and returned on a Thursday. Homework will given out on a Thursday, with it being due back in on the following Tuesday.

 

We look forward to an exciting and productive term in Year 3. Please email class teachers with any queries and we will get back to you as soon as we possibly can.

 

Mrs Ells, Mrs Watson, Miss Keelan and Miss Debnam.

We appreciate your continued support with your child's learning during the current situation. Below are a list of possible questions that you may have about learning at home, with answers and links to appropriate resources:

 

Where will I find any work that has been set for my child?

All work will be posted online using Google Classroom.

  • Mrs Watson Google Classroom page - https://classroom.google.com/u/3/c/MjQxMDU5ODI3NDVa

How does my child log on to Google Classroom?

Follow this link to the Google Classroom login page - classroom.google.com 

Children use their school email address to log in (e.g. - JoeBloggs@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk)

Password is the same as logging on to Chromebooks in school.

 

Where should my child's work be completed? 

Work can either be completed using Google Docs / Slides / Drive and submitted on Google Classroom, or written into Home Learning books that have been sent home.

 

I have a problem or a question for my child's teacher. How can I contact them?

My child has completed all of the work that they've been set. What now?

  • Teachers will be updating Google Classroom at appropriate intervals with new tasks should the need arise. Please visit Google Classroom regularly to keep up to date.
  • Please feel free to also push your child on in areas that you feel would benefit them (e.g. practicing areas of Numeracy/Literacy that they find difficult, learning a new times table, extra reading, spelling/punctuation practice, investigating a new topic that interests them etc.) 

 

Which times tables should child be practicing?
