Year 3 marks a shift in our childrens’ learning as they transition from KS1 to KS2.
As the year progresses, we equip Year 3 pupils with the skills and responsibilities they need to become more independent.
As a year group, we are pushing a big drive on vocabulary and spellings and we are trying to learn a new word for our writing every day. To support the children at home, continue reading with them and ask them what their word of the day is, challenge them to use it in conversation with you. Please support your child to visit the online platform Spelling Shed as often as possible. This will be incredibly beneficial to their spelling progress.
At present, PE is on a Wednesday and a Friday. Please make sure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on both of these days. Our PE kit consists of red shorts and a white t-shirt. For outside PE it is suggested they have trainers and black track suit bottoms and a red hoodie or school fleece jacket. All of these are available from the school suppliers:
PE is an important part of the curriculum and if there is any reason why your child cannot take part in a PE lesson please inform us in writing.
- Should be brought to school in a suitable, named container. Please ensure that your child has a healthy packed lunch. Lunches should not be brought into school in a carrier bag.
Your child can bring a healthy snack (e.g. a piece of fruit or cheese) for break time but please can you pack this separately from their packed lunch as snacks are kept in the classroom. No sweets, crisps or biscuits are allowed. Please can we remind you that no nuts are to be included in any snacks or lunches.
Your child should also have a water bottle in school which we would like them to take home daily to wash and refill.
How can we help?
If you have concerns about your child or would like to discuss how you can support your child’s learning at home, please make an appointment to see us through the school office.
Please, whenever you can, have a conversation with your child about school. By sharing they can learn by teaching you about all the skills and knowledge they are gathering.
