Welcome to our class page. This serves both Year 3 classes and we can't wait to share our joint learning journeys with you. Here you will find anything and everything you need to know about Year 3, including pictures and explanations of our learning.
Important Things to Remember:
Home/school diaries and reading books: Please bring these in daily.
Diaries will now only be checked once a week on a Monday, if there is an important message you wish for us to read urgently, please make sure your child brings their diary directly to their teacher or write a separate note.
P.E: Monday and Tuesday afternoons
Please ensure that your child wear their P.E. kit to school on their P.E. days.
Swimming: Swimming will take place in the Spring Term subject to restrictions.
Mid-morning snack: Pupils in KS2 are allowed to bring in a piece of fruit as a mid-morning snack to eat during playtime.
Water Bottles: Please encourage your child to bring a named, reusable water bottle to school to drink throughout the day.
We ask that children read at least 4 times per week.
Please sign your child’s diary to indicate when they have read. On a Monday morning, we will check your child’s diary and stamp the bottom of the page if they have read at least 4 times.
This will then gain them a star on the ‘Reading Road to success’ (which can be found in their reading diary). For every week your child reads at least four times, they will take another step along the road. When they eventually get to the bronze finish line, they will receive a certificate. Their next goal is then silver, where they will receive a special book mark, and then Gold. This is the ultimate goal, where they receive a book token.
At the beginning of each half term, children will receive a list of Spelling words which shows which spelling patterns and spelling list words we will be focusing on each week in school. These spellings will then be tested weekly and an overall test of the termly rules at the end of each half term. Please encourage your child to regularly practise their spellings at home.
At the beginning of each half term, a new ‘Key Instant Recall Fact’ will be introduced that your child will be focusing on for that half term. Please encourage your child to practise these at home.
Homework books containing optional homework tasks will be sent home at the beginning of each half term; these will all be linked to our topic for this term. We look forward to celebrating the wonderful creations that your children have done at home!
Our first topic is Small Acts, Big Impacts. This topic focuses on recycling and the impacts this has on our planet. We will be exploring some inspirational stories and focusing on the positives that particular individuals have had on our world. Remember to stop by and see our journey through this topic.
