Welcome to Northcott Year 3!
 
This term we will be learning about 'Westcountry Fisherfolk' for our topic which ties in with our school value of 'Unity'.
Maths mastery this term will include learning Place Value of numbers up to 1000, Addition and Subtraction and Multiplication and Division . We will be practising our times tables, improving our speed with 2, 5 and 10 times tables and learning the 3 and 4 times tables.
In English we have started with the wonderful Cornish story of 'The Mousehole Cat'.  We will be looking at poetry about the sea, and studying a legend from the sea, to improve our writing skills. We will working on techniques, such as, using compound and complex sentences within our writing, in order to level up in writing. Spelling will take place in the classroom and at home with a weekly spelling homework to be handed in on Fridays.
 
In science we will be investigating and developing our understanding of Food and Our Bodies.
We will be doing PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday, so please keep PE kits in school all week.
Reading Books and Reading Records will go home with children and will be checked daily to ensure that reading is happening at home.
 
We are really looking forward to Year 3 year, with lots of ideas for improving our learning in an exciting and fun way!
 
Regards,
Mr Osborne, Mrs Leitzell and Mrs Perrett
