Year 3 - Sea Otters 2020 - 2021

Miss Owens

Week beginning 5th January 2021

Happy New Year Sea Otters! 


Miss Owens here! 

I hope you have all had a lovely christmas and had some time to relax and play (especially in the snow we had!). I am really looking forward to seeing you all and hearing all about your christmas break. Myself and Mrs Evans would just like to thank everyone for our lovely christmas cards and gifts, we loved them and are really touched by how thoughtful you all are.

Im so excited to say we're now in 2021 and starting our spring term work here at school. We will be starting a new topic looking at Ancient Egypt, which I know lots of you are very excited about, and 'Animals including Humans' as our Science topic where we will be looking at the human body and how to keep healthy. As normal, we have lots of work to do and I'm really looking forward to getting back into the classroom with you all ! 

Below are your spelling words for this week. We will go through these in the first Literacy lesson on Tuesday ready for our normal spelling test routine to begin on Monday 11th January. Please remember to bring back your Reading Diaries (I'm looking forward to seeing if you have read any amazing books whilst you have been away from school) and your PE kits.

Our day for Forest School is changing this half term. We will now go to Forest School on a Tuesday afternoon so please bring your Forest School clothes with you on a Tuesday to get changed into and out of, rather than coming into school in them. 

See you all soon,

Miss Owens

General ideas for practising times tables:

  • Say the multiples in order to the 12th multiple (e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8...24)
  • Chant the times table you are learning (e.g. One two is 2, two twos are 4...)
  • Write out the times table in order (1 x 2 = 2, 2 x 2 = 4...) then out of order. See if you can remember all the products (the answers)
  • Start with a multiple and see if you can write the related division fact (12 ÷ 2 = 6)
  • Draw an array and write the related times table and division facts

    3 x 2 = 6          6 ÷ 2 = 3 
    2 x 3 = 6          6 ÷ 3 = 2


  • Use Numbergym (details of how to log in are in the 'Useful Websites' section below)
    Go to Table Trainer, where you can select the times table you want to practise

Please do continue reading with someone at home as often as possible as I am so proud of all the effort you have been putting into your reading so far this year.
