Our Year 3 PE day is Monday. Please ensure children come to school in their PE kits every Monday. They will spend the whole day in their PE kits so no change of clothes is needed. This term we will be doing Netball in our PE lessons.
Children will receive a new reading book weekly. New reading books are given out on Monday and then collected in on a Friday.
Reading is such an important skill and is vital in every subject! Year 3 is a year when children have the potential to make great progress and gain a good level of reading fluency.
Making this progress is hard work but it's best to practise often. Therefore, we encourage all children to read a little bit every day at home.
'The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.' - Dr. Seuss.
Spellings are sent out to parents/carers via Class Dojo on a Friday afternoon. Our spelling test will be the following Friday morning in school, so children will have a week to practise them.
Good spelling greatly improves the level of children's writing. Throughout Year 3, we have some tricky spellings to learn. We will work on them together in school; putting them into context and trying to deepen our understanding of word formation and meaning. Please also practise them regularly at home.
In Year 3, we have daily times table practice in school. We also use Times Tables Rockstars for children to practise their times tables at home.
We have our TTRS activity every Friday in school when children try to beat their record and improve their Rock Status!
Times tables are to Maths what reading is to English! A good knowledge of times tables gives children a deeper understanding of number and gives them the skills needed to problem-solve effectively. They are really important for every topic within Maths, and other subjects too!
Children should know the 2, 5 and 10 times tables when they come into Year 3 and be fluent with the 3, 4 and 8 times tables as well by the end of Year 3!
