Class Teacher – Miss S Daltrey
Learning Support Assistant – Ms B Kinnersley & Mrs L Whittingham
Swimming on Mondays
PE and Music on Tuesdays
Welcome to Year 3. I'm Miss Daltrey and I'm the Year 3 teacher this year.
This is my third year of teaching but my first year teaching at Silkmore.
I am extremely excited to get to know you all and become part of the
Autumn Term 1 Mini Mission
To kick start the new year, Year 3’s first Mini Mission is Charlie Small in
Gorilla City, which is an action-packed book about a boy who loves going
on adventures and getting lost in the most amazing places. We had a
mysterious backpack appear in our classroom, so we had to use our
inference skills to decide whom we thought the bag might belong to.
We will be developing our knowledge and understanding of word classes, like nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and prepositions to help us structure our writing and make our writing sound more exciting.
In Maths we are developing our understanding of place value. We will be counting from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100; finding 10 or 100 more or less than a given number; recognising the place value of each digit in a 3-digit number; comparing and ordering numbers up to 1000, and reading and writing numbers up to 1000 in numerals. Throughout this, we will be developing our problem solving and reasoning skills.
PE and Music
Year 3 go swimming every Monday morning so please ensure they have the correct kit in school for this.
P.E sessions are on a Tuesday morning and may be completed outside so tracksuits and trainers are advised. Earrings must not be worn for swimming or PE.
We also have Music on a Tuesday morning.
