Year 3 – Kestrels
Welcome to Kestrels Class!
Year 3 sees children start their journey into Key Stage 2. They have new things to learn and new ways to do things but we'll be there to help them. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please come and speak to us.
- The Year 3 teachers are Mrs Samuels, who will be teaching Monday - Thursday, and Mrs Smith who will teach on Fridays.
- The Teaching Assistants are Mrs Clewley who will be in class on Monday and Tuesday and then Miss O'Nions will be with us from Wednesday - Friday.
- PE will usually take place on Mondays and another day that hasn't been fixed just yet! Their PE kit should include warm joggers as we will try to be outdoors if the weather allows. Please could the children also remove their earrings on PE days. However, if that isn't possible, please could they bring surgical tape to put over their earrings.
What will we be learning about this term?
This autumn we'll become Egyptologists, trying to find out all we can about the Ancient Egyptians. Why did they settle along the banks of the Nile? How many gods and goddesses did they worship? What was in the pyramids and why? What did ordinary people eat? What happened to you when you were mummified? We'll have a lot of fun finding out!
This year, the homework expectations are that children read with an adult five times a week. If they achieve this, then they will be entered into the reading raffle. We think reading anything is a good thing: comics, novels, picture books, instructions, books about animals, space, dinosaurs...Let us know what you've read together and if it was any good!
It will also be useful if children could practise their multiplication facts using TT Rockstars. Just five minutes a day will make all the difference.
Spellings will be given out on Mondays, ready for a test the following Monday.
If you would like other activities to do at home, take a look at the ideas on the optional homework grid. We'd love to see what you get up to!
Fun things to do online!
