Year 3 (Dahl) 2023 - 2024
Welcome to our class page!
Welcome to the Dahl class page! We are a wonderful bunch of Year 3 children who love to have fun learning lots of new things. Here you will find important information about our class.
Miss Rigg is the class teacher. Mrs Maguire is our teaching assistant and supports us with some of our learning during the week. Mrs Sheen (HLTA) will teach our class on Friday mornings.
Curriculum Overview – Autumn Term
In English this half-term, our class text is ‘Egyptology’ by Dugald Steer. The children are already enjoying work linked to this text.
In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of number and place value.
Our Science unit is Animals Including Humans (teeth and digestion).
Our History topic this term is the Ancient Egyptians.
We will have a weekly French lesson.
Listening to your child read aloud at home is really beneficial, so your support is greatly appreciated. Reading aloud on a regular basis supports both your child’s reading fluency and expression. We encourage children to read a range of genres, but also to read texts which they find interesting. Your child will also have the opportunity to bring Big Cat books home, which include both fiction and non-fiction, as well as poetry.
This year, we are delighted to be using Boom Reader to record and track your child’s reading at home and in school. Please continue to listen to your child read daily and add each read to Boom Reader. Thank you for your engagement with this new way of recording reading.
To further support your child's comprehension skills, please ask a range of questions. These can be found on your child’s bookmark. Bookmarks should be kept with your child’s reading books.
PE is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. The children are to come in their PE kit. Please ensure that all PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Long hair should be tied back for lessons. Jewellery should not be worn in school. This is especially important for PE.
Water bottles, snack and school bags
Children are permitted to bring water bottles into school. Please ensure that bottles are taken home on a daily basis for washing and are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack to eat during their morning break. As we have children with nut allergies in school, please ensure that snacks from home are nut free.
Children need to bring their black school bags and school reading book each day.
This year, homework will be set each Friday and will focus on further developing some of the key skills. Homework will be as follows:
- Reading: Your child should read at least 5x weekly. If they meet this weekly challenge, they will receive a special ticket and entered into the monthly prize draw, having the opportunity to win a brand new book!
- Spellings: Please see the half termly spelling sheet (emailed home) with the spellings for each week. Children will be tested on their weekly spellings each Friday.
- Times Tables: TT Rock Stars allows your child to test their times table ability against the clock in studio mode or practice following this week’s teacher set activity. The teacher set activity will set a different combination of times tables to focus on building your child's confidence and ability. You can log in via https://ttrockstars.com/ or by downloading the app. Login details have been sent home in a letter with your child.
Should your child have any questions/queries regarding their homework tasks, please encourage your child to ask so that additional help and support can be given.
