Welcome to Year 3 - the first year of Key Stage 2. This year we will be working very hard and covering a great deal of work with lots of fun along the way.
Spellings: Spellings will be sent out every Wednesday and are based on the National Curriculum spelling patterns for Year 3. Children will be tested on the following Tuesday. Please help your child to practise their spellings at home.
Timetables: Timetables will be tested every Friday. By the end of Year 3 all children should know by heart their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. Please practise with your child to aid their learning – Hit the Button on the Top Marks website is a great way to engage the children at home.
Reading: Children are expected to read with an adult every night and have their reading records signed to reflect this. Reading books will be changed throughout the week so please make sure that they bring them into school everyday.
P.E: Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday morning; please ensure your child has a full PE kit, which consists of their house coloured top, blue shorts or black leggings/tracksuit and trainers.
Home Learning Grids: Home learning grids will be given out at the start of each term. Home Learning can be brought in on a Thursday each week as certain pieces may be chosen to be showcased in our Friday Merit Assemblies.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see me after school.
