Autumn Term!

We want to thank children and parents for an easy transition to Riddings Junior School. We have been amazed by how well the children have settled in and how much PRIDE has been shown already - keep it up!

We have lots to look forward to this term so please regularly check the school website for any updates.

 

History

The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age

This term, we will be delving into prehistory and learning all about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age. We will become archaeologists to uncover facts about the past and become hunter gatherers in the forest to understand what life was like back then.

Alongside other class texts, we will be exploring 'The Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura to help us to write our own prehistoric adventure!

 

Maths

Place Value

 Our Maths topic this term is Place Value, where we will be focusing on the value of digits within three digit numbers and different ways of representing numbers.

See below a list of vocabulary that your child will be exposed to:

digit, partition, sequence, greater than, less than, value, ascending & descending 

 

Reading

The Hodgeheg

 Our book study this term is 'The Hodgeheg'. We will be following the brave journey of a determined hedgehog named Max, who wants to achieve his goal of crossing the busy road despite horror stories of the dangers he might face.

At Riddings Junior School, to become 'good readers', we use 8 Inferential Reading Strategies (IRS) to explore new texts. Please see below our school's 8 IRS and feel free to use them when listening to your child read at home!

 

 

Wider Curriculum:

All classes will be partaking in Drumming this year, starting with Hilton and Shrewsbury class in the Autumn Term.

Maths

In Year 3, we have already started to develop our core math skills by using Numbots and TT Rock Stars. Please access these apps daily for short bursts of learning as these skills are fundamental.

Reading

This week, your child has completed an Accelerated Reader quiz to determine their ZPD level (book level). Please be patient whilst we analyse scores and allocate your child an appropriate book. Once your child has received their book, please support them in reading daily. Once they have completed their book and feel confident in their understanding, they will complete a quiz at school before swapping their book.
