Welcome to year 3!

A huge welcome back after such a long time away! It’s so good to have you back and I am looking forward to all the fun learning that we have planned!

PE day is on Thursdays so please remember your kit! Every Friday homework will be given out with the expectation that it is returned for the following Wednesday at the latest. Reading books will be changed every Friday for the week. Spellings will be tested on a Monday and new ones will be given out at the same time so you have a whole week to practice.

Reading and Home Learning

Reading at home and sharing a book with your child is vital! Your child will be bringing a book home every Friday and we ask that you spend around 10-15 minutes each night sharing a book with your child and then asking them questions based on their book. Why? How do you know? and Explain? are excellent ways to start questions. This will really get your child thinking about what they have read.

Your child has brought home a list of spellings from the year 3 and 4 statutory word list, as well as the year 2 spellings. Practising these at home will greatly help their spellings in school work. Other home learning includes learning times tables – x3, x4 and x8 in particular.

For homework in year 3, your child will have a homework menu for English (front of the book) and Maths (back of the book). Each week your child will choose an activity to do, one Maths and one English. They will then tick the one that they have done on their sheet. The following week, they will choose one Maths and one English activity to do and so on.

We are so pleased to be able to welcome you back to school.

Many thanks for your continued support.
