Year 3 2022 - 2023

Miss Brook

Spring Term 

Class teacher: Miss Brook      Teaching assistant: Miss Rothwell

English, we are focusing this term on our spelling within our work. Where possible can you ask your children to put their spellings into sentences, this will help them to understand the vocab they are developing and how to construct this word into a sentence that can be later written within their work. Also, an objective for Year 3 is to be able to find a word in a dictionary using the first 3 letters of the word they're looking for, we encourage the children to do this in every lesson and keep dictionarys on their tables. We will also have a huge focus on editing and improving our work, the children may be given a sentence for their morning activity and with a green pen are to spot the mistakes within my writing - this can also be done at home to help with further development.

Maths: our focus this term is multiplication/division, length and perimeter, fractions followed by mass and capacity. Please continue to encourage children to learn their timestables. We have been listening to timestable songs through youtube to help us remember. We encourage the children to learn their timestables by saying:
1 x 4 = ?
2 x 4 = ? etc.

Don't move on to develop another times table until your child is confident with both the multiplication and the division facts.

Excellent websites to use to help develop times tables:
