our topic will be...
We will be learning about Volcanoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters and why they happen. We will take part in our sleepover and we will visit Delamere Forest and Gorse Woods. Here we will look at the differences and similarities between Runcorn and Delamere Forest.
In English we will be reading many non-fiction books about Volcanoes and natural disasters.
We will be reading 'Escape from Pompeii' and basing a lot of our writing on this.
We will also be designing and making our very own volcano in science and DT.

Maths to do at home this term:

Adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator
Know by heart 3, 4, and 8 x table
Learn how to tell the time to the nearest five minutes

Reading books need to come into school when your child has read their book and their reading record has been signed.
In Year 3 we have a reading challenge aimed at promoting the children to read more.
For every ten books your child reads they will receive a reward. Our aim is to try and nurture a love for reading and for your child to read as many books as possible.
Things you can do when reading at home
Read at home with your child regularly and ask them questions to check their understanding.
Also, when reading ask your child for any words they do not understand. You can use a dictionary or thesaurus to help them and this will give them a greater depth of vocabulary.
Here are some sample questions you can ask your child:
Describe …, e.g. the giant
What do you think is happening here?
What happened in the story?
What might this mean? e.g. proudly
Through whose eyes is the story told?
Which part of the story best describes the setting?
Which words/phrases tell you that … e.g. the setting is spooky?
Which part tells you …, e.g. they were annoyed that Goldilocks was in their house?
Why do …? e.g. why do people need to look after their teeth?
Also don't forget to allow your child to read non-fiction books as well.
