Thank you all so much for the wonderful gifts and kind messages you gave us. It is so very kind of you and hugely appreciated. It has been absolutely delightful teaching Yr 3 this year. Thank you for all your support throughout the year and we hope you all have a wonderful, restful, safe Summer holidays.
All the very best - the Yr3 teachers and TAs.
Telling the time- please help your child practising the time at home. This would include both analogue and digital.
Spelling/multiplication and division facts- it is expected that by the end of Year 3 the children should know all tables in and out of order and corresponding division facts. The children will begin to learn words off the Year 3 and 4 spelling list and should have full knowledge of those on the Year 2 spelling list.
Equipment-please remember to label all your clothes including PE. kits, hats and gloves, not forgetting water bottles and sandwich boxes.
Homework- mathematics homework, Literacy homework and new spellings will be published on our class page. You must complete your homework in your book EVERY WEEK BY WEDNESDAY, however, we actively encourage you to hand it in earlier, if possible.
Days- spellings and tables will be tested on Thursdays. Our indoor PE session is Tuesday and outdoor PE is Friday. Our library day is Tuesday (when the children are encouraged to change their books) and homework is set on a Friday (when books will come home and homework is published on our class page) and due back by Wednesday.
Snacks- please ensure you provide your child with a healthy snack of fruit or vegetables, plain breadsticks, rice cakes, or popcorn. Water bottles should be filled and may be topped up from our water dispensers during the day. Try to bring fruits in a combination of different colours as part of their 5-a-day; our aim is 'to eat a rainbow'.
Have your children seen the Kids' zone? They can play games and visit some cool websites. They can even vote for their favourites.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to a joyful and exciting year.
The Year 3 team.
