Welcome back after a long summer, I hope you're all feeling rested and ready to begin your learning journey in Year 3. We are starting the year learning how to shine in the juniors by working hard and being kind to each other. You will learn about the world in my landmarks of the week and how to use the iPads to quiz on all the books you have read to make you confident and happy readers.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday so you'll need to remember your PE kit on the first week back so it's ready for your first PE lesson in the second week. It is useful if you leave your PE kit in school until the end of term so it's always there ready.
Information for Parents/Carers
Homework will be sent out twice a week on Monday and Friday. The spellings given out on Monday should be learned over the week ready for a test every Friday and these will need handing in. On Friday it will either be a reading comprehension exercise or maths and should be handed in on the following Monday. Reading should be around 10 - 15 minutes every evening with an adult.
Reading books will be changed regularly after children have completed a short online quiz in school related to their book of choice.
Every week I will be setting a challenge for children to try to identify a well known landmark with family points being awarded for the person who gives me the name and location of the landmark - I usually find adults can be useful sources of information for this.
I hope you enjoy your first term in Year 3 and look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.
