Wishing you a very warm welcome to Year 3 .
So the new school year is well underway.
Alongside our maths and literacy learning, we are finding about the Stone Age,
learning about the work of Louise Bourgeois and how to sketch.
Our science investigations are furthering our knowledge about plants
and in French, we are learning to count and greet people.
Although, school is a little different, we are keeping safe
and have become accustomed to washing our hands regularly.
As a school, we have been working hard to ensure that any potential learning gaps from the previous year's learning will be addressed during our first half-term, alongside all our fabulous topics.
Due to social distancing requirements, discussing queries or concerns at the gate will not be possible,
so should you have any questions or queries,
please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Day
via ClassDojo or by telephoning/emailing the school direct.
Below you will find our weekly spelling and comprehension homework.
Maths homework is on the MyMaths website and
children should access Reflex maths 3 times a week to build up their times table knowledge.
Please share reading with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in their reading record.
Ready, Respectful, Safe
A very warm welcome to Year 3! In Year 3 we have an inspiring and motivating curriculum with themes covering a term or half term throughout the year. Curricular subjects are taught within the theme so that the curriculum is meaningful and relevant to the children.
This half term, our PE days are a Monday (Class Teacher) and a Thursday (Miss Walker). Please make sure your child has the correct kit in school. Children will require indoor and outdoor PE kit this half term, including suitable footwear. Initially, we will be undertaking PE sessions outdoors, so please ensure your child has appropriate kit for cold or inclement weather conditions.
For health and safety reasons children should not be wearing any jewellery to take part in PE or sport, particularly ear rings. These should be removed before coming to school on a PE day.
As well as the Year 3 and 4 spelling list, children will continue to follow the RWI spelling scheme. Please see the log book for the rule and words your child needs to practise.
We want to create children who have a lifelong love of reading, so reading and books have a really high profile in our class. The children are encouraged to read a range of books, and particularly those which they are interested in and motivated by. We have a lovely reading area in the classroom, which the children will have access to during the week. With regard to home reading, children are expected to read four times a week, with their reading record being signed by an adult at home. Children will bring a book home, which needs to remain at home until it has been completed - it can then be returned to school and exchanged for a new book. Children will have a different reading book in school.
It is expected that children read four times per week at home, with reading records signed by an adult at home. If children make no attempt to do the homework, it is expected across school that they will stay in during their break time to complete it.
Our homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned by Thursday. If children make no attempt to do the homework, it is expected across school that they will stay in during their break time to complete it. Each week children will receive a reading homework as well as a maths.
