Welcome to our Year 3 Page
Here you will find out about all that is happening in year 3. We will post regular updates and photos of our learning on Facebook and Twitter, as well as useful tips and advice on how to support your children with their learning.
During this year we focus on supporting your child as they make the transition from Key Stage 1 into Key Stage 2, teaching them the skills they need to become increasingly independent learners, further embedding good learning behaviours and promoting a growth mind set so that they are able to achieve their full potential and adopt a love of learning.
What we will be learning
To find out all about what we will be learning about this half term, please open our current Year 3 knowledge organiser.
All homework is set on Thursday and due in the following Tuesday. Each week the children are expected to complete the English and maths learning activity. As well as these set pieces, your child should read regularly and get an adult to sign their reading record book.
Spellings are set on a Friday and are linked to the spelling pattern we have been focussing on throughout the week in our Read, Write, Inc sessions. Spellings are assessed through teacher marking in your child’s writing.
Times tables learning – Times tables practice is included in your child’s home learning every week and they are encouraged to practise them regularly. Times tables knowledge is a crucial key skill that underpins many aspects of maths and makes a huge difference to a child’s mathematical learning.
PE: Children can come into school in their PE Kit on their given day.
Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled. Please include joggers and a sweatshirt for outdoor PE and a spare pair of socks. PE is a compulsory part of the curriculum; please support your child in having their kit ready and in school.
Please let the school and the teacher know if your child has any allergies (that we do not already know about) or needs to take any medication.
Remember that your child will need to bring a piece of fruit to school if they wish to have it at break time as fruit is not supplied in Key Stage 2.
Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months.
