Introduction to Year 3

Welcome to the next exciting term of Year 3.  This half term in Jigsaw, we will be exploring our dreams and goals and how to go about achieving them.  Our book of the term is a classic – The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.  We have lots of learning in science and art linked to this topic. Remember to look at the Spring 1 newsletter for more details.

Daily reading is essential to your child’s success and confidence in their learning.  This can be individual reading, reading to an older sibling or adult and also playing reading games.  Encourage your child to bring their reading book and diary into school each day so that they can practice as often as possible.

Please encourage your child to practice their weekly spellings. They can have fun with the Spelling Shed games online or use pen and paper which ever they prefer.

MyMaths tasks are online to complete, as well as Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars. These have been chosen by staff at Dovecote to develop your child’s number fluency and confidence.  

See or email your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
