Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 3 Page

Our topic this half term is Mighty Metals.

The children will be learning all about forces and magnets and carrying out scientific investigations.

We will be using the book ‘The Tin Forest’ by Helen Ward as a basis for writing our own narrative for the story.
We will also be reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes as our class read.

We will be practising our embossing skills during our art lessons.

During our DT lessons we will be designing and making our own ‘Iron Men’.

We will be starting to learn Spanish in Year 3 during this half term. Hopefully the children will practise this at home!

Next half term our topic is Tremors.

The children will be learning all about natural disasters and carrying out geographical study.

Our learning about natural disasters will be used as a basis for writing our own explanation texts.

During our DT lessons we will be designing and making our own erupting volcanoes.

We will be continuing to learn Spanish in Year 3 during this half term. Hopefully the children will practise this at home


Our PE day is a Thursday, please ensure that children have black shorts, a red t-shirt and appropriate shoes (trainers/plimsolls).

Children will get spellings every Monday to practise for a spelling test the following Monday. These will be in their red 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.
