Year 3 Additional Bits of Information

A very warm welcome to Panda Class. We are very excited to have the children in school and back to learning lots of exciting new things after the summer break. 


Miss Platts is the class teacher supported by Mrs Grose.


The first part of our term in English we will be looking at story writing using ‘A Bear called Paddington’. In Maths, we will first be looking at place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division before starting our exciting Maths scheme called ‘Maths No Problem’. The scheme of work is based on Singapore Maths and helps the children move from concrete to pictorial to abstract learning. 


For our theme work we will be looking at The Stone Age and on Friday 19th November we will hold our very own Stone Age day in school. Her the children will dress up as Stone Age people and learn all about this era through hands on experiences both in and outdoors.


Reading books will be sent home on a Friday and to be returned each Friday. We read 4 times a week and this must be signed by an adult. Reading plus can also count towards one of these read. This must be logged in your child's reading record along with the percentage that they score and signed by an adult.


P.E will be on a Thursday and Friday and full indoor and outdoor kits are required. Please ensure these are all named. 


Homework will be set online on a Tuesday and will be due in on a Monday. This will either be on Seesaw, TTROCKSTARS, Spelling Shed or Mathletics.

Our Weekly Award Winners!

What an incredible first term we have had at Woodlea! The progress the children have made is really outstanding. They come to school eager to learn lots of new and exciting things. I am very proud of how far they have come already and I can’t wait to see how they continue to flourish. This next term in Spring 1 we will be learning about fables, poems with a theme and discussion texts in English. In Maths we will be looking at further multiplication and division, length, mass and volume using our Maths No Problem scheme. In geography we will be looking at map work and OS symbols. Our History era will be Bronze Age into the Iron Age and finally our science topic will be forces and magnets. Have a lovely Christmas and I will look forward to the New Year.
