Year Three Notice Board
A few notices:
- Thank you for all of your continued support this term. We have had a wonderful Spring Term and wish you all a fantastic Easter break.
- Next term we will be looking at the Romans so if you wanted to do some research over the Easter break please do!
- Please do not let your times tables get rusty over the break. Just like a bike, if we don't ride it, it will get rusty. Our times tables will too! (Try and play "Hit the Button")
Swimming- Every Tuesday morning at Brentford Leisure Centre. Children need to bring their swimming costume, towel and swimming hat in a bag ever week and take it home again that day. Goggles are optional.
PE- Every Tuesday afternoon. Children will need a full winter Belmont PE kit as we are now into the colder weather. Please make sure that everything is labelled.
French - Wednesday afternoons.

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.
Over the Easter break we would like you to practice 20 words from the High Frequency Word list below. Please choose these at random and get an adult to test you.
