Welcome to Year 3!
You are now a Junior! It is a very exciting year.
Home Learning Expectations
We expect pupils to read to an adult where possible every evening.
Pupils will receive spellings on a Monday and will be tested every Friday.
Literacy and Maths
Pupils will also receive a literacy and a maths task to complete every week in their Mental Arithmetic and English Skills books. Only one test should be completed in these books per week and the details of which one can be seen on the homework sheet. These will be marked together in class on Thursday and given back out on a Friday. Tasks will also be set weekly on MyMaths.
Multiplication and division
Children will be given a set of multiplication or division facts to learn every week. These will be tested in class most mornings throughout the week.
At the beginning of the year, the class votes for a representative from the class to be part of the school council. Members of the school council meet to discuss new ideas with teachers and feed back to the class.
Every Year 3 child goes swimming on a Wednesday afternoon.
PE Lessons are on a Thursday.
Your child will need:
Coat (with a hook so that it can be hung on the peg easily)
Reading book and reading record book
School homework diary
Sun hat and sun cream already applied during sunny weather
Children may (but do not have to) bring a pencil case into school for use in some afternoon subjects. This must be small and may only contain certain items.
Please make sure all of your child’s belongings are clearly named.
