Year Three Notice Board
A few notices:.
- This week in Maths we have been teaching written methods for multiplication, Please refer to the calculation policy your child will be bringing home, to see the methods we have taught. The previous link below is unavailable at the moment. We will add a new link to this shortly. It is vital the children learn the partitioning method before moving to more formal short multiplication. Please support your child at home by doing a couple together.
- You will see an additional column for spellings. These are High Frequency Year 3 words. Some children will only need to practise these but everyone else can practise if they feel they would like extra spellings.
- No swimming next week!
- No clubs next week!
- Class reps have been given a list of food and drinks for our Christmas class party which is Wednesday 19th December. Please speak to the reps to discuss if you would kindly like to contribute food and drinks. Also remember the children will have just had their lunch so we won't need a large amount.

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.
Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 15 - 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension. Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week. Children can change their reading book at any point during the week if they have read the ones they already have. Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well. We will be encouraging them to take ownership with this.
Key words/ Spelling
Each week there will be two lists of spelling. The lists will be called 'Mild' and 'Hot' and children should choose which one they want to learn from. They will be given on a Wednesday and tested the following Monday. Each week the lists will link to a spelling pattern or rule.
High Frequency Words
Below are some links to support with spelling at home.
This week we would like you to complete these pages:
