Oakes Class and Richards Class - Mrs Jarvis and Miss Pilling
Welcome to Year 3!
The summer term is now in full swing! We are learning about The Great British Seaside and what makes it so popular.
This half term we are having a real push on spellings and times tables to prepare the children for Year 4.
Please continue to encourage your child to practise their weekly spellings and their VIP/HFW spellings.
Happy New Year!
This term we will be learning all about Chocolate! We have an exciting trip to Cadbury World coming up in March (details to follow) and we will be learning about the bean to bar process, the history of the cocoa bean and what Fairtrade means.
As you know, at the end of Key Stage 1, the children are expected to be fluent with the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. In Year 3 we are going to have a push on times tables and will be learning the 3's, 4's and 8's so they can rapidly recall these facts.
Welcome to Year 3 at Riddings Junior School! We have lots planned for this term, the most exciting of all being our trip to Cresswell Crags on October 19th. This will include a life in the Ice Age cave tour and a Stone Age safari - more details to follow.
This half term we will be learning about the Stone Age in History and Rocks in Science. We will be having a go at cave paintings in Art and will be reading lots of exciting stories in English.
