Children's online dictionary smiley
Here is a quick guide to column subtraction which includes regrouping (formerly known as borrowing!) The actual method hasn't changed but the vocabulary that we use with children has. Stick to Hundreds, Tens and Ones again!
We are now working on addition using columns in our maths lessons. Please refer to this website (there's a video too) to explain the way that we teach this to the children. Adults, please note that we no longer use units but ones. The numbers are placed in columns which can be labelled HTO (hundreds, tens and ones) to retain the place value as we add larger numbers. 
Please ensure all items of school uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with your child's name. This makes it easier for us to reunite pupils with any misplaced items of clothing!

Welcome to Y3 letter for families

We use the Purple Mash website to set homework and to help us deliver the Computing curriculum. It has lots of exciting content that we can use in all our subjects. You have all been given login details and new passwords to help you access this website at home. If you need a reminder then come and speak to your class teacher.

Year 3 Questions for Reading

We have had some parents ask for more books to read with their children. Sadly due to quarantining books we can at the moment only send out 1 book every 2 weeks. You can keep the book for the whole week and whilst reading with your child, choose one question from each section of the bookmark below. You could ask more than one type of question per page. This will check that your child really understands what they are reading and could lead you into further conversations about the book.

The children have now been sorted into their school houses. They will stay in these houses for the remainder of their time at Emmaus and will work to earn house points, in their sporting and academic endeavours and through kind and thoughtful behaviour. These will also be the teams that they represent on sports day and in the inter-house football and cross country events that take place throughout the year.
