Year 3 Pakistan
Welcome to Pakistan Class
Class teacher - Mrs Pallister
Teaching Assistant - Miss Samson
In English, this term, we will be continuing our approach to writing. The children will be using the writing rainbow to help them to develop their vocabulary and create lots of interesting sentences. We will be working on a wonderful narrative called 'Stardust' before writing our own narrative.
In Maths, we will be exploring place value and addition and subtraction.
In Science we shall be looking at Magnets and Forces. The key questions that we will be answering are:
* What are the properties of materials?
* What is a force?
* What does magnetic mean?
* Do magnets have different strengths?
* Why do magnets attract and repel?
* Which pole is in which direction?
* What is friction?
* What is air resistance?
Please see the knowledge organiser below to discover the key knowledge and vocabulary we will be learning in this topic.
1. Be safe
2. Be ready
3. Be respectful
Pakistan class will have their P.E. on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child arrives in school wearing 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. Tuesdays the children shall be learning about Flag Football. Thursdays the children shall be swimming, so please ensure your child arrives with appropriate swimwear, a swim hat and a towel.
Children will need to complete TT Rockstars each week. We are also encouraging children to read at least five times a week. When you hear your child read please sign and date their reading record.
Once again we are encouraging the children to read at home and there are chances to collect house points.
We are starting to use Accelerated Reader, where children will have to complete quizzes based on their books to test what they have read.
We have a new incentive in school they win a prize every ten times they read to an adult. We will monitor this through their reading records.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to talk to one of the Year 3 members of staff regarding homework or reading.
