This half term our topic is ‘Footprints from the Past’.
Dinosaurs lived millions of years ago – long before people lived on Earth. No one has ever seen a dinosaur, so how do we know anything about them? Fossil evidence and dinosaur bones provide our only clues. Like detectives, Year 3 are trying to discover what dinosaurs looked like, what they ate, and what might have happened to them in the end.
In Maths, we are looking at subtraction, fractions, and multiplication facts.
In English, we are working on clauses and paragraphs, in order to improve the structure of our creative story writing.
PE for Year 3 is on Wednesdays and Fridays – please remember to send your child to school with the appropriate kit.
To aid your child’s learning, here’s what you can do at home to help:
English - Encourage your child to read daily. Reading even just a few pages each day can have a huge cumulative effect on vocabulary, writing, grammar and overall attainment.
Maths - Practise times tables and number bonds.
Topic – Encourage your child’s interest and curiosity in dinosaurs by looking at books and websites together and talking about them.
Please ensure that your child takes responsibility for the weekly completion of homework.
