A very warm 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 Friday and are based on the National Curriculum spelling patterns for Year 3. Children will be tested on the following Friday. 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 every day.
P.E: Our PE lessons will be on a Friday afternoon; please ensure your child has a full PE kit, which consists of their house coloured top, school blue shorts or black leggings/tracksuit (in the winter) and plain black trainers.
Home Learning Grids: Home learning grids will be given out at the start of each term. Home Learning should be brought in to school on a Thursday each week so that certain pieces can be chosen to be showcased in our Friday Merit Assemblies.
I look forward to working with you and your child and should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to make an appointment, with the office, to see me after school.
