Kingfishers - Year 3
Welcome to Kingfisher Class!
The class teachers are Mrs Britt and Mrs Kaup and the Teaching Assistant is Mrs Prouse.
In Year 3, we cover a range of topics that cover the Humanities (History and Geography).
- Ancient Egypt
- Who is the Greatest of them All?
- Above and Below
- The Romans
Where possible, we try to link Science to these topics. Throughout the course of the year, we cover:
- Animals including Humans
- Working as Scientists
Every term, there are Knowledge Organisers connected to the Humanities topic which we cover throughout the children’s learning, making as many cross-curricular links as we can. These are sent out via Parentmail at the start of each half-term. The knowledge organisers can also be found below:
HOW TO HELP YOUR CHILD LEARN
Maths and English homework is sent out every week; this goes out on a Thursday and is expected back on the following Tuesday, completed to a high standard. Should your child need any extra support with this, they are to see Mrs Britt or Mrs Kaup where she will give them the guidance and support they require to successfully complete their work. The work set is based on what the children have been learning in class that week or revision of work from the half-term.
Every child in Year 3 has a reading record. This is to be used to record when they read. Every child needs to be reading for at least 20 minutes each night, whereby they record it in their reading record.
There are many ways to help your child to learn. Listening to them read or talking about their books will help them to develop their inference skills in reading. Ensuring that your child knows their times tables, which will help them immensely in Maths.
We encourage children to read a range of text types and authors. Each year, we share a list of 50 books for the year group which we encourage children to read from. They are awarded a certificate to show how many books they have read. Please see the link for the recommended reads for year 3 below.
PE takes place on a Tuesday afternoon and a Thursday morning. Your child always needs to have the correct PE Kit in school. This includes pale blue t-shirt, shorts and trainers. A black or grey tracksuit can be worn during the winter months.
Church Visit - Monday 27th September
Kingfishers enjoyed a visit to St Lawrence Church with Roy the resident Church Warden for St Lawrence , who took the time to show us around this beautiful church. As you can see the children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the church, going into the pulpit, tapping the bell and looking into the Priests hideaway.
