Thank you for all the fantastic topic homework that we received last half term around our Black history topic. We enjoyed reading all of the children's ideas and research about Ruby Bridges.
We were impressed by the children's art and DT skills. We focused on the book 'Amazing Grace' in literacy and the children made lots of props that would help Grace in her school play; wands, wings, hooks and even a crocodile! We are looking forward to seeing what you can create this half term.
Welcome to Year 3!
PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays and children will need their PE kits in school all week.
PE kit should consist of a t-shirt and shorts and a pair of pumps .
Please ensure that your child brings their reading book everyday.
Books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays but your child must have their reading diary signed to say they have read to an adult. Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
This will help children to build their love of reading!
Spellings and Phonics
Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings will be given out the same day. Words will be stuck/written into the children's spelling books and tests will also be done in these books. Please make sure that your child looks after their book and that you check it regularly. Thank you.
Your children will be set reading homework on Tuesdays and will need to be completed for the next day. This will be an online homework on Matheltics or a worksheet. This will be sent out on Thursdays and will need to be completed for the following Monday.
A homework menu linked to our learning in class will also be sent out at the start of each half term. Each activity will be allocated points and you and your child can choose which activities you complete.
We also encourage parents to practise times tables with their children so that they can learn them by reciting them and know them by heart. They should practise x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x8 and x10.
If you have any questions about Year 3 please come and talk to either Miss Meiklejohn or Mrs Gough after school.
Year 3 have been practising French numbers. The children created a rhyme to help them remember. C'est fantastique!
