Welcome to The Discoverers
Our Class Teacher is Miss Gale. In The Discoverers we always strive to be the best that we can be by following our school rules 'Ready, Respect and safe'. As a Discoverer we know that we have to face challenges to discover our true potential in all of our learning.
I am very excited to welcome you all back into school and begin our Year 3 together. This Autumn term in maths we will be focusing on place value including the introduction of 100s as well as using 10s and 1s in calculations. Can you order and compare numbers up to 1000? Can you read and write numbers up to 1000 in both words and numerals? These are just some of the questions we will be working on during this first half term. Multiplication for Year 3 includes the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
Our project question this half term is; 'Is change always good?' with a historical focus looking at the surrounding area of Sutton-In-Ashfield and including some very exciting work on the Anglo Saxons.
Please listen to your child read 5 times a week and record in their new reading record. We will change our reading books on a Wednesday each week. Children that do read 5 times a week will receive 10 dojos on a Friday so please make sure your child brings in their reading record each day for this to be monitored.
Our PE day is Friday. Please send your children into school wearing their PE kit on these days. If it is cooler that day please ensure your child is wearing navy or black jogging bottoms, their school jumper and trainers. Many of our PE lessons will be outdoors.
Each half term a group of children will be selected from our class to take part in an enrichment activity at The Mill. This half term, children are taking part in team building activities. This will happen every Wednesday afternoon and the selected children will need to come to school in clothes suitable for the activity.
In Year 3, each class will go swimming at The Lammas centre. Our class will begin their lessons every Thursday from the 4th March 2021 until the 22nd July 2021. More details will follow closer to the time.
Please make sure your child only brings a water bottle, packed lunch (if they have one), their book bag (including their reading record everyday) and their coat. Please check your child has not taken any small toys, lip glosses or any item of make up with them even if they are in their coat pocket as they may let their friends play with these.
I look forward to our new year together
