In our Talk for Writing lessons we will be learning a Native American myth called How Rabbit Stole the Fire. If you would like to share this myth at home and role play the different creatures from the forest, you can find the text below.

Maths

 All children in Year 3 are expected to know their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables! They need to remember them by heart and recall the matching division facts.  

 If I know 4 x 4 = 16. Then I know 16 ÷ 4 = 4.

If I know 8 x 4 = 32. Then I know 32 ÷ 4 =8.

Reading

Please make sure you are reading at home every day!

Make sure to ask your child questions, predict what might happen next, talk about the characters, discuss the meaning of words and you might even be able to link the story to some of your child's own experiences.

Books should be re-read for pleasure and practise.

 “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” - Dr. Seuss
