Homework Topic – Year 3: St Martin
A very Happy New Year to you all. We hope you had a wonderful time and we would like to thank you all for your kind wishes, cards and gifts at Christmas. We really appreciate it. We want to welcome you back to school and tell you a little about what we’re doing this term.
Maths will be taught daily and as well as studying multiplying and dividing, we will focus on money. Please give your child the chance to play with money at home and use real money in real life situations. Please continue to support your child with their times tables.
As well as spelling, grammar and punctuation, our English work will revolve around the book “Escape from Pompeii” by Christina Ballit. Thank you for listening to your child read on a regular basis. Please continue to support them by reading very regularly (at least 3 times a week). Even if children read fluently, it is still so important that they are reading aloud to an adult at home. Children love to read aloud and we really want to encourage this and foster a love of books at home and at school.
In Religion, we will be focusing on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, this links with the “I Belong” book that the children are using to support their preparation for First Holy Communion.
Our topic in Science, is Forces and Magnets. Our History topic, is the Romans. We will be studying all aspects of the Roman way of life and how it still influences us today.
Our P.E. focus will be gymnastics and team sports. These lessons will take place on Thursdays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child has a full P.E. kit in school at all times. This should include a plain navy tracksuit, school P.E. shorts and top and trainers.
Homework will be sent home on Thursdays and needs to be returned to school on Monday. Spelling tests will take place on Tuesdays.
Thank you for your continuing support, we are looking forward to an exciting spring term.
