Welcome to Year 3

Dear Parents,

We are delighted to welcome your children into the summer term and to continue to work in partnership with you all.  We hope you have all enjoyed the Easter holiday and we are looking forward to returning to the academic year, well rested and with renewed enthusiasm.

We have posted a curriculum overview document on the website so that you may take a closer look at what we have planned for this term’s curriculum. 

Over and above work in school, we do require that children reinforce their learning through homework and the expectations are as follows:

Spellings: Given out on Monday and the expectation is that your children spend some time learning the spellings ready to be tested on a Monday or Tuesday depending on their particular group.

Reading: Children are expected to read every night and record what has been read (as well as any difficult words they come across) in their Reading Records.  As you all know it is a highly enjoyable experience to share in the joy of reading with your children so please discuss story outlines and ask them questions about what they have read.

Maths Homework: Given out on Tuesday to be completed and returned to school by Thursday.

Topic/English: This will continue to be a hard copy sent home with children on a Thursday to be completed and returned on a Monday. The homework will be set to enhance the Topic or English homework.

PE and Games:  PE will be on Friday and outdoor games on Thursday so we ask that children have their PE kits in school which should consist of: House Colour T shirts, shorts and plimsolls plus training shoes.  As the term progresses warm outdoor tracksuit trousers and tops are recommended.

Details of swimming  will follow as will information on forthcoming trips.

If you have any concerns or feel the need to speak to us, please make an appointment by contacting the school office.

Thank you for your continued support. Mrs Elder and Ms Durrant
