Madame Yau, Mrs Plumley and Miss Waller look forward to working with the class this year.
The information below will tell you more about the timetable and structure of life in year 3, as well as how you can help your child at home.
P.E: Year 3 will have PE, supported by Playsport, on Wednesdays this term. We will also have a class PE session on Thursdays. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit on both of these days.
Library: Our library day will be a Thursday. We will encourage children to select appropriate books to read independently or a book that we can read with them. The children will also have opportunity to read books from our reading corner.
Reading books: We are committed to developing your children as enthusiastic and confident readers and will be issuing them with a banded reading book to support this. An accelerated reader programme has also been launched across the school. You can read more on the accelerated reader website.
We will be aiming to read with your child at least once each week, but it is important that they also read at home. Please try to read with your child and record in their reading record at least 3 times each week and more if you are able to.
Spelling: By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know all of the Year 3 and 4 spellings which you can see below. Given the amount of time children have been out of school, we recognise that some children also need assistance with some Year 1 and 2 spellings. We will be working on these words in school and it would be great if the children could practise them at home too.
The children will have 10 spellings sent home on a Tuesday. They will be tested on these spellings the following Wednesday so please spend time learning them at home. The children all have access to Spelling Shed games to support their learning. The guide below gives instructions for how to access this if your child needs help.
