Welcome to Year 3.
Reading Challenge Books
Hello everyone and welcome to Year 3.
Our focus in English starts with storytelling, describing settings or even introducing new characters to our story. Across the school we will be learning to become experts at storytelling and Year 3 will be learning in depth Anthony Browne’s story ‘Into the forest’ and ‘The Wolf’ s footprint’ by Susan Price.
As part of our drive to make our writing fabulous, we will be learning how to write De:De sentences, inside (outside) and other Alan Peat sentence types.
Reading challenge continues!
Children should be encouraged to read these to further develop their reading ability and vocabulary. If the children read five books each half term they will receive a half termly reading challenge certificate. Please support and encourage your child to foster a lifelong love of reading.
In Spring 1 our focus will be on multiplication and division including:
- multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables
- two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods
- solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division
Please support your child in learning their tables.
