We look forward to welcoming all the children back to year 3 on March the 8th at 8:45 a.m. All children will have their own sets of pencils, sharpeners and rulers and will not need to bring any in to class. Thank you.
PE - 3T and 3MW will have PE on Monday and will need to wear their PE kits on this day.
3J will have PE on Friday and PE kits will be worn on this day.
HOMEWORK including READING, SPELLINGS and TIMES TABLES
Your child will bring home a new list of spellings to learn on a Friday or Monday and will be tested on those spellings the following Friday. All spellings will be set on Spelling shed weekly for the children to practise throughout the week as homework.
Maths homework will be set weekly on TTRockstars, children have passwords on the front of their reading booklet. In addition to this there may be some counting in steps to support multiplication recall.
If your child has difficulty accessing our online homework please inform the class teacher through messages in their reading diary.
We encourage the children to read for 10 to 20 minutes a night. Having children of our own, we are all aware of how busy daily life can get. However, reading is SO important for your child's development which is why we are making this plea to support us with reading at home!
Each child has been given a home-reading book and a reading record booklet. All we ask is that it you read with you child (preferably) or at least check they have read and then sign the reading record to show us that they have read. Please insert page numbers alongside the date your child has read and your initials or signature. This is so we know when to change their book and to provide us with feedback. You are also welcome to make any comments to keep us updated with reading at home. If you do make comments, just ask your child to point this out to us the next day and we can respond as required.
We will hear your child read each week in class during guided reading sessions.
All the children in year 3 have now been given codes to access Seesaw. This can be accessed online or by downloading the app. This will be our main communication tool this year so it is extremely important that you are able to access this. If your child's code has been misplaced, please feel free to get in touch (we know these things happen) and we arrange for another one to be sent home. Homework will be set through Seesaw and any future home learning. We have had excellent feedback from the children about using it -we hope you find it useful and accessible too.
