Welcome to Year 3!
To look at what Year 3 are doing this half term, please click the Kingfisher next to Summer 1 at the top!
Reading is still SO important in Year 3 and the four reads will be celebrated every Friday. Your child will have two books, one which is at their reading level and another which they have chosen themselves, which may be more challenging. If children don't get their four reads they will have to read during Golden Time on a Friday afternoon, so please write in your children's diaries and help get the Kingfishers to the top of the reading mountain!
Luckily for me the children are always really excited about receiving homework in Year 3. They will have one piece of homework given to them every Friday which is to be completed by the following Friday. They may bring in their homework at any point throughout the week and I will usually remind those who haven't brought it in yet on a Thursday. The homework will alternate between Literacy and Numeracy and will be relevant to what they have been learning in class. It is never anything too difficult and is more to encourage children to become more responsible and grown up about their learning and responsibilities. If children don't complete their homework then unfortunately they will have to complete it within Golden Time, which neither I nor they want to happen.
PE will take place every Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has the appropriate PE kit and footwear suitable for outdoor PE. Children with long hair must have it fastened up and any ear piercings need to be covered.
Water and a snack
This year the school has provided each child with a water bottle which will stay in class and has their name printed on it. These will be thoroughly cleaned each Friday ready for the following week. Therefore children only need to bring in a healthy snack for first play. Your child can still bring in their own water bottle if they wish to do so.
