Welcome back to the last term before the Summer!
Our topic for the This term is 'Playlist' which is all about exploring music and sound. The children will be doing lots of music based activities, including listening to and creating music. We will also be studying the' Iron Man' by Ted Hughes in literacy. The children will be creating their own iron man and developing their understanding of the Story and its characters.
This term the children will taking part in the Shakespeare festival, performing Richard III, which will be held in Clifton Park on the 22nd of June. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to be able to perform in front of an audience.
Times tables are incredibly important and I would encourage you to help your child with these at home. In year 3 the children are expected to learn 3, 4 and 8 timestables. Please note that the children are expected to know all the timestables up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4!
The children are currently learning spellings from the recommended spelling list for year 3 and 4. There will be a spelling test every Monday.
Children should be listened to read every night for about 10 minutes. Please write this in your child’s reading diary and return to school on a Friday to be checked by an adult. Bug club is an excellent way for children to enhance their reading and comprehension skills. All children have their own login details to access this.
