Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible

 

A very warm welcome to Year 3 from Mr Langford, Miss Hall, Mr Bower, Mrs Smith, Miss Dawson and Miss Baker.

 

Year 3 is an amazing time for everyone as the journey through KS2 begins and the children really develop their skills for independent learning. Throughout this year the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: The Stone Age to the Iron Age, We are Great Britain and The Roman Empire.

 

All of the topics have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.

 

Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our PE days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This half term, children will have sessions with Corporal Butcher, basketball (Class 2), swimming (Class 1) whilst also taking part in our Young Leaders programme with year 6.

 

Homework expectations:

  • We expect children to read as much as possible. Children in year 3 should be reading daily.
  • By the end of year 3, children should know all their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables. We recommend that children practise these as much as possible. We test times tables weekly in school... practise makes perfect!
  • Children are given a spelling test weekly, so we expect children to practise their spellings at home. We have one practise session in school to help children with this.
  • At times throughout the year, children may receive additional homework to support their learning in school.

 

Attendance:

The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our air is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.

 

Spring 1 attendance:

 

Class 1: 93.9%

Class 2: 94.7%

 

 

 

 

 

Spellings are tested weekly. To practise your spelling online, see the 'Spellings' link below.
