Peace (Year 3) Class
This term, we will read stories about the life of a small girl who lives in Africa with her African dad and Canadian mum and a large extended family. The country is not named but the author has drawn on experiences from her own Nigerian childhood. Modern and traditional aspects of African life are an integral part of the stories.
We will complete our our Geography topic, Climate Change, and in conjunction with our history topic, Ancient Egypt. We will begin a new science topic – Animals – including humans (nutrition as well as the functions of skeletons and muscles).
Spellings and Times Tables will be undertaken each week and children will be expected to learn them and will be tested on them weekly. Please encourage your child to use these words in sentences. This will help them use the words in context and also practise the spellings.
Children are expected to read at home every day. The books should be changed twice a week and a book reviews need to be complete before moving on to the next book. Please sign the reading record every time you hear your child read. They are responsible for bringing their reading record and their class reading book to school every day and for changing their book when necessary. Please support your child’s reading everyday for 15 minutes and help them to record this in their reading record.
This will be given on Fridays each week and will be expected to be completed on line by Tuesday the following week. It will usually be a Literacy and Maths task. Sometimes it may also be topic based. Each should not take longer than 30 minutes to complete. We hope to close the gap created by the COVID-19 school closure in Year 2, by setting home worked based on the revision/revisiting of skills missed and we kindly ask that you support us in doing so to bridge the gap.
Please ensure that earrings are removed on Mondays due to safeguarding. Children must wear the appropriate PE kit – white top with black or red bottom to school on Mondays. They need to wear the school jumper as well. Please ensure that your child wears warm PE kit as we are now in the cold season.

I am looking forward to working with you, to continue supporting your child to reach his or her fullest potential.
