Wishing you a very warm welcome to Year 3 .
Alongside our maths and literacy learning, we are finding about
Doncaster and the railways in our local history exploration,
while focusing on our region and county in geography and how the railways changed the landscape of the UK.
Our science investigations are furthering our knowledge about forces and magnets,
while in French, we are learning names for food, days of the week and months of the year.
In literacy, we will be reading and studying
'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.
Due to social distancing requirements, discussing queries or concerns at the gate will not be possible,

Ready, Respectful, Safe
A very warm welcome to Year 3! In Year 3 we have an inspiring and motivating curriculum with themes covering a term or half term throughout the year. Curricular subjects are taught within the theme so that the curriculum is meaningful and relevant to the children.
This half term, our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has the correct kit in school. Children will require indoor and outdoor PE kit this half term, including suitable footwear. Initially, we will be undertaking PE sessions outdoors, so please ensure your child has appropriate kit for cold or inclement weather conditions.
For health and safety reasons children should not be wearing any jewellery to take part in PE or sport, particularly earrings. These should be removed before coming to school on a PE day.
As well as the Year 3 and 4 spelling list, children will continue to follow the RWI spelling scheme. Please see the log book for the rule and words your child needs to practise.
We want to create children who have a lifelong love of reading, so reading and books have a really high profile in our class. The children are encouraged to read a range of books, and particularly those which they are interested in and motivated by. We have a lovely reading area in the classroom, which the children will have access to during the week. With regard to home reading, children are expected to read four times a week, with their reading record being signed by an adult at home. If children make no attempt to do the home reading, it is expected across school that they will stay in during their break time to complete it.
Our homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned by Thursday. If children make no attempt to do the homework, it is expected across school that they will stay in during their break time to complete it. Each week children will receive a reading homework as well as a maths activity via MyMaths.
