Year 3 India
Welcome to India Class
Class teacher – Miss Capp and Mrs Norris.
Teaching Assistant - Miss Henderson and Miss Sanders.
We started this year with our topic on Tribal Tales which both the children and us really enjoyed! We are now moving on to our next topic Mighty Metals!
Mighty metals are everywhere! From earrings to rockets, metals have shaped the world we live in today. This half term, we’re going to become fantastic physicists, exploring the world of forces, metals and materials. In our playground, we’ll explore the forces that help us to slide and swing. We’ll look closely at levers and explore how they help us to lift heavy objects. To learn more about forces we'll make and play with parachutes and carts. We’ll also investigate iron, think about why some metals rust and discover the properties of different metals. Lastly, we'll be finishing off the term by making a super companion for Iron Man from the book 'Iron Man by Ted Hughes'.
1. Be safe

3. Be respectful
Homework and spellings will be set on a Friday and will need to be returned by Wednesday in order for me to have a look at them before the next piece of homework is set. I will set Maths and English on alternate weeks along with some multiplication practice every week.
India class will have their P.E. on Thursday and Friday afternoons, please make sure that your child has their full P.E. kit on these days (including footwear). No earrings are allowed during P.E. lessons so if your child can not remove their earrings themselves can you please make sure that they arrive at school with no earrings in on those days, thank you.
Once again we are encouraging the children to read at home and there are chances to collect Class Dojo's for their houses! Our days to change books will be Monday. Children must have written comments in their Reading Record before they are allowed to change their book.
We will also be starting to use Accelerated Reader, where children will have to complete quizzes based on their books to test what they have read. When they have achieved 100% three times, they will then progress up a reading level.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to talk to one of the Year 3 members of staff regarding homework or reading.
Your child will receive a spelling list which will have all their spellings on for the week.
We will also be practising our timestables every day so please support your children with learning these. They will be given login's for Timestable Rockstars and practice tests will be available to help with their learning at home.
