Welcome to the Pallister Park Y3 page!
Our topic for next half term will be Gods and Mortals
The children will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks, The Trojan War and identifying Gods and Goddesses.
Any extra research you can do at home would be brilliant and the children can share this with their classmates.
During Science we will be investigating how to protect our eyes from the sun and finding patterns in the way that shadow sizes change.
During English we will be looking at a range of Myths and Legends from Ancient Greece and writing character descriptions.
Children will get spellings every Monday to practise for a spelling test the following Monday. These will be in their yellow spelling books. Children can use 2-3 pages in these books to practise at home and take any additional paper needed from school. Spelling books must be brought into school every day. As we are sure you are aware, reading at home to an adult is so important for children to develop their fluency and reading skills. Please continue listen to your child read at home and sign their planner. Reading books and planners must be brought into school every day. Children are also expected to practise their times tables at home as the government expectation is that by the time they finish Year 4 they will know all of the times tables. All children now have a secure log in of their own so that they can access ‘Times Table Rockstars’. We encourage children to log in at home on a daily basis and play games linked to their targets. Regular prizes/certificates will be given to children who are working hard to improve their scores/speed.
The children will be going swimming as part of their PE curriculum over the Summer term. Wednesday – Y3M and half of Y3L Friday – Y3A and the remaining half of Y3L
PE will continue to be on Thursdays. PE kit consists of red t-shirt, black shorts and suitable footwear, i.e. plimsolls or trainers. Please ensure that your child has their swimming/PE kit on the correct day.
