Letter from Mrs Penhale regarding a confirmed case of Coronavirus
Miss Wolsey and Mrs Riley teach in Year 3. We are supported in the classroom by GTAs and ATAs.
Our doors are open in the morning from 8:40 am to 8:50 am. We are also available on the door at the end of the day to handover the children safely to whoever is picking them up. If you need to discuss anything or arrange an appointment, please feel free to catch us there or send a message via ClassDojo.

Year 3 Term Themes (260kB)
Look at what we have been learning throughout the year
At the start of each theme, children will bring home a choice of homework activities which they can select from to complete over the half term.
Superhero Maths Targets are sent home to practise and tested in school every three weeks.
Children will also bring home weekly spellings and reading books which we encourage them to read as much as possible so they can change them regularly.
Effective understanding and recall of times tables is an important foundation of Maths and the curriculum puts emphasis on these skills. In order to help ensure this happens, we are using Superhero Targets to build on the children’s rapid recall of their tables facts. Children are introduced to the Superhero Targets in Year Three and they continue to work through them throughout Key Stage Two. The levels are:
|Batman||x2 x5 x10|
|Hawk Girl||x3 x4|
|Thor||x6 x7 x8|
|Black Widow||x9 x11 x12|
|Superman||All with division|
|Catwoman||All with place value – HTU and tenths|
|Ironman||2 digits x 1 digit|
|Wonder Woman||Fractions, decimals and percentages of quantities|
The children have individual writing targets to work on and these are recorded on their target cards. Their targets are changed regularly as the children meet them in their writing. Please speak to your children at home about the targets they are working on.
