Mr Mullins and Mrs Wilmington
Hello Owls, friends, and family! We hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday, and we are excited for the year ahead. Owls will be taught by Mr Mullins and supported by Mrs Wilmington. We also have some brilliant adults working with our class throughout the week: Miss Kitto (History), Mrs Gomes (Portuguese), Miss Prater (Music), Miss Finn (RE), and Mrs Smith (PE).
In Owls, we will have high standards for ourselves and our peers, with regards to behaviour, attitude, learning and homework. Our aim is to take pride in our achievements and build our teamwork.
In English, this term we will be focusing on grammar skills and spelling rules. We will then be writing narratives and a range of non-fiction pieces. We will begin the term by reading the book, Once upon a fairytale. This book will transport you into your own adventure, where you could come across a shoe house or find a villain turned into a mouse.
In Maths, we will focus on Number: exploring place value, rounding and negative numbers. We then focus on our calculation skills. The children will complete weekly Arithmetic Tests and will continue with multiplication practice ahead of the Year 4 multiplication check.
In Science, we will be investigating animals including humans. You will undertake loads of investigations!
The children will also have PE, Art, PHSE, RE, DT, Computing, Music, and Portuguese weekly. The P.E days will be Tuesdays (indoor) and Thursdays (outside). Please be prepared to do PE in the winter months!
Homework will be set on a Wednesday and will be marked the following Wednesday. There is an after-school homework club on a Monday that will offer support, or if your child is stuck or struggling, they can ask one of the Y3 adults for help and they can look at it one break or lunch time. If your child persistently forgets or does no complete their homework, they will do it during lunch time with an adult.
We have lots of exciting opportunities for the children planned and we will let you know in due course when everything is confirmed. We look forward to a fantastic happy year of learning and making memories.
We look forward to working with our Y3 families for their next chapter at Manor Court.
