A BIG welcome to the Year 3 class webpage!
We had so much fun last half term learning all about the Victorians. Please have a look through our Learning Journey books and ask us questions so you can experience and hear all about the exciting learning that we took part in.
Now that we have returned to school after the Easter holidays, we will diving into two more big questions- our first one is Why do so many people choose to go to the Mediterranean for their holidays? We are so excited to start learning all about this as well as reading some Greek Myths.
Reading and Home Learning
Reading at home and sharing a book with your child is really important! Your child will be bringing a book home each night and we ask that you spend around 10-15 minutes each night sharing a book with your child and then asking them questions based on their book. Why, How do you know and Explain are excellent questions to use to get your child really thinking about what they have read. Your child will change their book each Tuesday and they are provided with the opportunity to choose their own book so that they can choose one that really interests them. They will also bring home a reading journal that they need to write a few lines about the book they have read.
Your child will also bring home spellings every week on a Friday and children need to practise their spellings ready for their spelling test. Other home learning, includes Maths and English tasks which will be given out on a Friday and this needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday of the following week.
Children have P.E. lessons on a Tuesday morning and a Thursday afternoon, it is essential that your child has their kit each week. Our PE kit includes black shorts, a white t-shirt and black school pumps. Black school pumps should be kept in school at all times in case of extra P.E. activities. We would like to ask that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit on a Tuesday morning, with their uniform in a bag to change into afterwards.
We hope that Year 3 continues to be a success for your child and if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to come and speak to us before school or after school.
Many thanks for your continued support
