Please see the above links for apps, websites or letters relating to what we do and how you can help your child in Year 3.
We are having a great time learning all about The BFG! On the week beginning 24nd September, we are hoping to go outside for a lesson, so please could children bring in a waterproof coat and either wellies or trainers, if possible.
We are also hoping to make dreams, like in The BFG. To do this, each child needs 1 medium-sized glass jar (e.g. a jam jar). If you have any spare, please send clean jars with lids (no traces of nuts please!) in to school with your child by Monday 1st October. If you have more than one, we would appreciate any extra! Unfortunately, we will not be sending back the jars in their original condition!
Welcome back! We look forward to the new school year in Year 3. Please come and see your child's class teacher if you have any questions or queries about routines.
If you missed our 'Introduction to Year 3 and KS2' meeting that took place last academic year, you can view the slides here.
You can see our new topics listed below. This term, we're really focusing on reading, spelling and key Maths facts. The Year 3/4 statutory words are in available via the link above.
Please continue to try to read with your child and/or talk to them about their reading at least three times a week. On top of predicting and summarising, other skills we’ll cover will include looking at structure (headings, sub-headings, captions, introductions and conclusions) as well as discussing why the author chose certain words and for what effect.
Please use the planners as a means of tracking what your child is reading. We are encouraging children to be independent learners by completing this themselves on the days where they may not read with an adult.
Main topics for Summer Term
Topic: Divorced, Beheaded, Died...
Science: Light and Dark
Art & DT: Tudor Designs
R.E: Religions of the world
Computing: Key Skills
Please read the information below to find out more about the routines in Year 3.
Please note we are now a NUT FREE SCHOOL, so children cannot bring any nut products to school in their packed lunches. We appreciate you co-operation with this.
Miss Perkins teaches in 3P and Mrs Nicholson and Mrs Hall teach in 3N, with teaching assistants Mrs. Wallace, Miss Dann, Mrs. Whitfield and Mrs. Rathbone. On Wednesday afternoons, Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. Hall teach the Year 3 classes.
Children will take part in guided reading activities every day in school. Home readers are free choice and for the children's pleasure and enjoyment. Children can bring in books from home, and are encouraged to independently change their book when needed. Please use the reading diary to let us know how your child is getting on at home.
In addition to reading we will send home tasks which support our work in English and Maths or Topic. We will send home spelling homework each week.
PE and Forest Schools
Our PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays. We plan to get outside as much as possible for PE or activities, such as Golden Mile, so please could ensure your child's PE kit is in school everyday, including trainers. As the weather gets colder you may also wish to send in jogging bottoms and an extra jumper.
Please bring in bookbags, a water bottle and coat every day. We will send home book bags each evening. Children do not need to bring a pencil case, however they may be brought in and can be used for some afternoon activities (and need to be small enough to fit in drawers!).
Medicines and Illness
Please ask at the office if you have any queries regarding medicines or need to update your child’s healthcare plan. Please remember to leave 48 hours clear of sickness/diarrhoea before returning to school.
As we don't check bookbags, please let your child know if there is a letter or slip that they need to hand to their teacher in the morning. Thank you.
As always, if you have any queries or concerns please come and talk to us, or send in a note or email to the office.
