TIMETABLE

Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning regularly so it is important that they always come to school with a hooded coat. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.

PE – Monday and Friday. Please ensure PE kits are clearly named.

Music – Tuesday. Please remember to bring instruments into school on Tuesday morning.

HOMEWORK

A Year 3 newsletter is sent out via School Comms each week.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three times a week. Reading books will be changed if parents have signed to confirm their child has read. Please send books into school each day as children will have a range of reading opportunities in class.

Big talk: Children are given a topic to discuss at home once a week and are expected to share what they have learnt.

Spellings: Spelling is a high priority in Year 3. Children will be given words to learn each week at home and will be tested on a Friday.

Please follow this link to access parent information about end of year non-negotiables for English and Mathematics. Any support that you can give to your child to achieve these targets will be extremely valuable.
