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") 

Forest School

Next half term the Year 3 children are going to be given the opportunity to do Forest School for one afternoon per week throughout Summer. The children will be working with Miss Skinner alongside their class teachers outside for most of the afternoon. Please can the children wear sensible footwear such as wellies or boots.  Children will need to bring a change of clothes which are suitable for getting messy. We will be outside whatever the weather including rain, please make sure your child has suitable clothing on their Forest School day. ​
Monday PM -  Elm class 
Tuesday PM -  Willow class 
Y3 Potato Update from Mrs Nicholas
18.4.19 - I've been checking on the plants in the school garden and you'll be pleased to hear that the Y3 potatoes are growing well. The shoots have started to show through the soil so I've covered them with more compost. They'll need a bit more compost next week.

Home Learning

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.

 Reading

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.

Year 3 Reading List

 

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.
