Welcome to Year 3!
Mr Bates and Mrs Gleeson are looking forward to working with the children in class this year.
A little reminder of our weekly timetable,
P.E. - In year 3 our P.E. days will be on a Monday and Wednesday this term. Please make sure children bring in their full P.E. kits of shorts, t-shirt (white or burgundy), socks, and trainers for these days. It is advisable that all children bring in their P.E. kits on Monday and leave in school until Friday in case we do extra P.E. lessons or other activities.
Home Learning - In year 3 weekly Home Learning activities of spellings and times tables will be given on Thursday and will be expected back in school on Tuesday. Daily reading is encouraged as this will have a positive impact on all aspects of their school life.
Library books - In year 3 our library day is Wednesday. We will encourage children to select appropriate reading books that they could read independently or perhaps as a book that you may read to them.
Our topic for the Autumn term is The Romans in Britain.
Homework so far...
The children's response to the Roman's in Britain project was fantastic!
All of your children clearly enjoyed the home learning and loved sharing this in class.
Pictures of their fantastic projects can be seen below. Thank you for all of your support.
This term's homework will have a similar themed approach and will be discussed in class with the children soon.
We look forward to seeing all of their hard work in class when their new projects are completed.
Year 3 Reading Challenge
In year 3 we have challenged the children to read for pleasure as often as possible.
Encourage your child to record each time they read in their Reading Records. All reading qualifies in this challenge!
For example, if you are following a recipe in the kitchen...That's reading! Instructions on a new board game...That's reading! Reading a book to a younger sibling...That's reading! Can your child find other easy opportunities that qualifies as reading?
Mrs Gleeson is keeping count over each half term, and the child that has read most often wins our challenge. There will be also be a small prize.
