Welcome to India Class

Class teachers – Mrs Norris and Mrs Rozier

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Roberts

During the Autumn Term, our topic will be focusing on Science - specifically Forces and Magnets. We will be completing many science experiments, investigating forces, frictions, speed and pushes and pulls. 

We will be reminding ourselves of our basic sentence skills in English, focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar as well as reminding ourselves of the 'lenses' we use for writing. 

Maths will be focusing on place value and then addition and subtraction. As a school, we are really trying to encourage our children to use their mathematics skills to help problem solve and find multiple answers to questions.

There will also be lots of practice of Times Tables in preparation for the Year 4 Times Tables Test. The more you practice with your child, the better.

P.E and Swimming 

Year 3 India have P.E every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.

On Tuesdays, the children can come into school in their P.E kits.

On Thursdays, Year 3 are going swimming. Please bring your child to school in their school uniform and make sure they have a bag with their swimming costume, hat and towel in. It would be helpful if you could make sure that their items are all named.

Reading Books 

It is really important to read with your child at home. Please do this 3 or 4 times a week.

Please make sure your child brings their reading book to school every day.

In Year 3, the children start using an AR reading scheme. This means they need to read their books 3 times, before taking a quiz based on what they have read. If they pass the  quiz, they get a new book. If they fail the quiz, they will need to read it another 3 times and re-take the test. The reason we use this scheme, is to encourage the children to be able to answer questions about a text - good practice for further exams.

Water Bottles 

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school. This must be named. There are regular opportunities for your child to drink and fill up their bottle throughout the day. Please remember that this should only be water not juice or squash.
