Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Maths No Problem

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school. To find out more, visit http://www.st-lukes.hants.sch.uk/click-here-for-parent-videos-for-singapore-maths/ to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's.


The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 3. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem Textbook A and B and Workbook A and B for your year group for use at home and also find out more about how Maths is taught in school, these are available to order at http://www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/mathematics/primary-key-stage1-and-key-stage-2/maths-no-problem.html

 

We ask all parents to support children with learning their times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as Mathematicians.

 

Please also remember to make use of  IXL https://uk.ixl.com/ and My Maths https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ to further support Maths at home.

Nos Voisins

In our Topic lessons, we learnt about our neighbouring countries, specifically France. We came to school dressed as French pupils and enjoyed a whole day learning and speaking French. We also linked our Science and D.T lessons with our Topic focus and we learnt about nutrition and designed our own healthy eating baguettes!

At the start of the Spring term, we studied coasts in our Topic lessons. We looked at our local coast and linked our learning with Science - studying rocks and soils - and Art - painting seascapes using multimedia.

We visited Hengistbury Head as part of our Coasts Topic and Science Rocks and Soils project. Firstly, we studied the cliffs and sketched the different layers. Then we went on a scavenger hunt searching for various rocks, shells and fossils. We then chose to classify our rocks in various ways, such as permeable/impermeable, hard and soft rocks and size/colour/appearance.
