Welcome to Year 3
Thank you for taking the time to visit our page. Please visit this page regularly to find out more about our class. If you need anything specific, please do not hesitate to message me via the Class Dojo.
PE is on a Monday and Thursday. Children must bring full PE kit on these days.
HOMEWORK In Year 3, homework will consist of 30 minutes Mathletics. In addition to this, the children will also be given a Topic homework. This will be completed over a half-term. We set this to encourage the children to take responsibility over their learning, enable the children to go into greater depth in a topic and also to allow them time to show off the standard of their work.
READING is expected to be completed 3 times per week. In year 3, it would be beneficial if the children read with an adult to check their reading fluency, address any mistakes the children are making and also check comprehension of the text. Most importantly, it is GREAT FUN to enjoy a book with your child! Please sign the children's diary to show that they have read. Children should also complete Lexia, Oxford Reading Buddy or Reading Plus at home for 30 minutes per week..
BOOK CHANGE will take place whenever your child finishes their book. Just ask them to come and see either myself or Mrs Atkinson first thing in the morning.
TIMES TABLES will be tested every Friday too. By the end of Year 3, your child is expected to have learnt 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. As such, they will be tested accordingly. School have subscribed to Times Tables Rockstars to help. Also, there are a plethora of games and Apps online. The tried and tested method of learning these by heart is also very useful.
