1 HAMSEY GREEN PRIMARY SCHOOL AUTUMN TERM 2015 Our theme this term is Journeys Pirates Our t YEAR THREE Puffer Fish and Jellyfish Classes Teachers: Miss Chatfield Miss Webb Mrs Jones and Mrs Keep (Wednesday pm) Teaching Assistants: Mrs Desai Mrs Roberts This leaflet is to give you a summary of the work and expectations for children this term. It contains a general overview of the work to be covered and suggestions for ways in which you can help your child.

2 Consultations with Parents Target setting meetings will be held to discuss how your child has settled in to Year 3. Targets and the yearly overview for Year 3 will be shared with you and your child at this meeting. You are, of course, welcome to speak informally with the teacher after school should anything be concerning you but please make an appointment through the office if you wish to share something important with your child s class teacher. Children will write their homework, stick their weekly spellings and record any general notes in the Fishy diaries. Literacy Each day the children will take part in Literacy activities which include reading with the whole class, group reading, individual and paired activities. Children will work independently and in groups and lessons will end with a discussion of skills and the knowledge gained. Some children have daily Letters and Sounds sessions whilst others will be taking part in spelling investigations. Children will also develop their knowledge of the dictionary and thesaurus. Speaking and listening Our priorities for this term will be: To talk about special and familiar places To encourage the children to talk about things which they have done e.g. following a visit to a special place To discuss why they like or dislike poems, talk about rhythm and rhyme To perform poems of their choice To re-tell their favourite stories To express what they have learnt Encourage your child to look at you when you are talking to them or when you are explaining something Take the children out and talk about your visit e.g. to the park or a special place Read poems and stories together and share your favourite ones Tell stories to your children and ask them to retell them to you (this helps to improve their listening skills) Collect postcards or take photographs of places to help them to describe the place or event.

3 Reading All children are in Guided Reading group according to their reading ability. In addition, some children will be heard individually. The children must bring their reading books to school daily and their school fish diary. The children will be taught to select books for their own interest from the school library each week. The children will be encouraged to use books for their own research. The children will be encouraged to read different authors as well as different styles of text (fiction and non-fiction) Listen to your child read (daily) and please sign their reading diary. Read lots of books to them (especially at a higher reading level as this increases their vocabulary) Encourage them to read non-fiction (news reports, letters, diaries, biographies) as well as fiction books (Fairy Tales, myths, legends) Register your child at a library and encourage your child to take books out At home read recipes, letters, notes, instructions etc Writing/Handwriting Each week the children will take part in a variety of activities which will give them opportunities to write. The children are regularly encouraged to free write about a subject of their choice. The children will have formal handwriting sessions. Children will taught the correct joining strokes. Our priorities are to: - Encourage children to write freely and check their work with a partner - To edit and improve their work - Use punctuation effectively to add meaning to the text - To learn to form letters correctly and then to join up their handwriting - To talk confidently about their work and praise what has worked well - To complete a writing task in the time allocated Spelling The children will be involved in a number of activities that will encourage them to investigate spelling patterns within their Literacy lessons and Letters and Sounds groups. Children will learn and be tested on their words each week. Children will have time to learn spellings as part of their morning work.

4 Help your child practise their spellings and encourage them to say a sentence and then write a sentence. Play spelling and word games such as Junior Scrabble, cross words, word searches, Lexicon etc. Encourage your child to look closely at spelling patterns and to collect word patterns e.g. hear, fear etc. Ask your child to write your shopping list for you or to write notes. Encourage them to listen to words and to talk about the sounds of words around them (rhyming words, words which sound the same but are spelt differently e.g. there, their, they re) Children can use the look, cover, write, uncover and check system to learn spellings. Numeracy In numeracy the children will be learning about numbers. Place value will be a main focus this term. They will be learning to (at their level): - Count, read, write and order numbers to Add and subtract numbers to Round numbers to the nearest 10, Count in patterns of 2, 5,10, 4, 3 and 6 - Know table facts for 2,5,10,4,3 and 6 by heart - Add by identifying near doubles - Solve real life problems - Recognise odd and even numbers - Work with different amounts of money - All number bonds - Learn Timetables Shape, space and measure Children will be taught to: - Describe 2D and 3D shapes - Recognise North, South, East and West as points on a compass - Read a calendar - Sort information into charts and answer questions about data - Measure in grams and Kilograms - Recognise fractions of shapes and amounts
