Our context for the Spring is

 ‘Rotten Romans!’

Through this context the children will learn about the Roman Empire and its impact on Europe and the British Isles. Children will find out how Romans lived, how they were educated and what life was like for a typical Roman citizen. 

 

Children's literacy and numeracy lessons will be delivered through this exciting context, for example, investigating the temperature in the different parts of a Roman Baths!

 

Our class teacher is: Mrs Doyle 

 

Class Willows' library day is a Tuesday morning. It is very important that children return the books when they have finished reading them, so they are able to select another book to enjoy.

 

If books are not returned children will be unable to choose another book to take home and you may be charged for the missing book.

 

Please keep visiting to see the wonderful things we are learning about!

 

 

PE

PE lessons will be every Wednesday morning and will be taught by Mrs O'Brien. Please make sure that on Wednesdays:

  • Your child wears PE kit to school - black or navy joggers
  • Your child is wearing sensible shoes - trainers
  • Your child is wearing no jewellery

Rotten Romans topic overview

Homework

 

In order to make good progress in their learning, every week your child will need to:

  • practise their times tables -  this term we are focusing on our 2,5 and 10X tables to ensure we remain confident with them. Children will be able to log in to Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash at home to practise these.
  • practise their spellings - a suitable word list will be sent home on a Friday, and then all children will be tested on this list the following Friday - giving them plenty of time to learn them!
  • read - suitable books will be set for your child on Bug Club library which is levelled correctly for their reading ability.We ask that you aim to listen to your child read 3 times a week to accompany the various reading activities we provide in school.

 

A mini project linked to our 'Rotten Romans' topic will be given at the beginning of the term. Your child can choose which activity to carry out each week and how they would like to present it. 

Red homework books will be provided for any homework/spellings your child carries out.

 

If you have misplaced your homework sheet or book, please ask Mrs Doyle for a new one.

Accelerated reading

Year 3 take part in the accelerated reading scheme, where they are given 20 minute independent reading time every day. AR is a computer program that helps to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer - passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.
