Miss O'Dowd, Mr Nicholls, Miss Morris, Mrs Lemon and Miss Hadley would like to welcome you to our Year 3 year group page. We hope you find this a useful place to visit to gain any important information; find educational links and to have a peek at the wonderful things that are happening in Year 3!
So far, in maths we have been looking at the eight points on a compass as well as learning all about the term 'angles'. The angles that we have focused on are: right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles.The children have enjoyed participating in finding angles within a shape. In order to do this accurately, the children have been using a right angle checker.
This term we will also be focusing on;
Properties of shape: In the unit, the children will draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them. They will also recognise angles as a property of a shape or a description of a turn.
Statistics: The children will learn to interpret and present data using bar charts and pictograms.
Place value: In this unit, we will be revisiting the place value of each digit in a 3-digit number (100s, 10s, 1s). We will also be finding more or less than a given number.
Calculating using the 4 Operations: The children will continue to refine written methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will be applying their knowledge of the 4 operations to solve mathematical challenges and real life concepts.
Spellings are important in Year 3! Below we have attached the Year 1/2 Common Exception Words as well as the 3/4 Common Exception Words that can be practised throughout the Year! The Year 3/4 Common Exception Words are words that the children should be able to spell by the end of Year 4.
We have also attached the spellings for Group 1 and Group 2 that we will be testing the children on every Friday!
Top Tip: When we test these spellings in school we put these words into sentences which you may want to try at home!
