A huge welcome to all our lovely Year 3 children!

They have settled into the juniors brilliantly and we are really enjoying getting to know them. The children have returned with lots of enthusiasm and are adopting well to all the new routines (as well as enjoying catching up with all their friends). I am confident we will have a great year! 

Please keep checking our class page for regular updates and messages.  

 

Your child will need:

  • A book bag - for reading books, letters and homework.
  • A water bottle.
  • A healthy snack (snacks are not provided in KS2). 
  • A packed lunch (unless having a school lunch).
  • PE kit and pumps.

 

PE

PE will take place every Wednesday afternoon (full kit and pumps needed). Please ensure all items of clothing are labelled with their names. 

 

Homework

Under the current circumstances, we have decided to send the children's homework books home and they will remain at home. The children will be given a paper copy of their homework to complete every Friday. It is important that you support and monitor your child's homework to help consolidate what they have been learning in school. Homework will mirror what we are learning that week and will always be explained to children in advance. Every so often I will ask the children to bring their homework books into school to review their progress and assess if they require further support. The children will continue to have a weekly spelling test and spellings will be given out every Friday ready for the following week. 

 

Reading

Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and returned to school on a Friday. All books will be isolated for 72 hours before going back into circulation. Please ensure your child is reading regularly throughout the week.
