Welcome to 3K

Welcome to 3K
We are very excited to start your Moorlands journey with us in Year 3.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come to speak to me, I will be available at the beginning (8:35am) and at the end of the day (after 3.40 pm.)
 
- Mrs Kendal
 
Homework
We use Google Classroom to share homework each Monday. Google Classroom will show the details for English and maths homework - there will be one English and one maths related homework per week; one could be a computer based task which will be rotated between the subjects each week and the other will be a written task which can be submitted online, on paper or in the orange homework book. All homework should be handed in by the following Monday or before. Some of the electronic homework may use Education City, Spelling Shed, spag.com, maths.co.uk or Times Table Rock Stars.
 
Reading
Children will have a reading book which should be read daily. Your child’s reading record will come home every day to be completed. Opportunities will be given each day for your child to change their reading book, if they need a new one. In Year 3, we will give regular reminders about changing reading books, either as a whole class or individually. We are beginning to use Accelerated Reader quizzes to start earning word counts towards being millionaires.
 
PE
Your child will have indoor and outdoor PE lessons on specific days. Tuesday is outdoor PE. Monday is indoor PE. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on their PE days. Children will need the correct footwear for indoor PE. Only school PE kits are to be worn, not branded tracksuits. So far this year we have enjoyed sessions of dance and cricket.
 
Topics
In our science topic we have been learning about light and we investigated how shadows can change size.
 
In geography the children have been learning about the United Kingdom and different counties, cities, towns and National Parks.
 
In art we have been focused on the work of Henri Matisse and produced work that showed colour, energy and joy.
 
In DT we are learning how to thread a needle and sew some basic stitches to eventually design and create a pencil case, purse or wallet from felt.
