Year three is a hard- working, ambitious class who always try their very best in everything that we do. Our first topics this year are: The Stone Age and Light, so anything you can help with at home will make these topics even more enjoyable.
P.E. will be on a Thursday, please ensure both outdoor and indoor kit is provided as the weather is very unpredictable at this time of year. In a change to infants, there is no water fountain in the classroom so your child will need a water bottle every day that they will be able to fill up from the Lower Junior fountain.
Reading books will be sent home every night and will need to be in school the next day for Mrs Atkinson to change them. Your child will bring home a reading and homework record book. If you have any comments from the reading there is space provided but I would love to see a comment from your child as well.
Homework given will be recorded in this book. All homework set will also have a cover sheet provided explaining about the task. One week will have 20 minutes of maths and 20 minutes of R.E. The other week will have 20 minutes of literacy and a science research question such as, ‘Why is the sea blue?’ If there are any questions about the homework do not hesitate to come and see me.
Your children will also bring home a spellings/tables test book. There will be a spelling test every Friday, with new spellings provided on the same day. The spellings will include 10 on a theme and 5 from the Year 3-4 key words list which I have attached to this letter. There will also be a times tables test every Thursday with new tables given on the same day. Tables form a very important part of junior life so if we learn them quickly we will have a head start. I have attached a timetable for what will be needed everyday.
I look forward to a successful year,
