Nightingales

English

We will be working on grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting. We will also be working on our story writing skills, learning how to write stories with familiar settings. The children will also be looking at some non-fiction books linked to our topic on Wild Weather. the children will be tested weekly on their spellings.

Maths

The children will be learning place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and measures - length, mass and volume. The children will be tested weekly on times tables and will have the opportunity to go on Times Tables Rock stars.

PE

PE is on Tuesday and Wednesday. PE kit must be worn on those days and should be named. If any child does not have their PE kit in school they will be required to wear spare kit. PE kits should be brought in on Monday and taken home on Friday. Children will need trainers for outside PE. Children will be taught PE by a PE specialist this term.

Homework

All homework is on the homework cards that your children bring home. This will be in the form of times tables and spellings to learn for tests on Friday. Homework cards will show the dates of all tests. Children also have optional homework tasks usually linked to their topic or science. There is also a space for you to fill in any `wow` activities that your child may have done at home. These can earn your child extra house points! If you have any questions about homework please feel free to ask.

School bag

Your child needs to bring a pencil case, reading book and reading record every day to school. Can you please ensure your child has a bottle of water for use in the classroom. (Juice is allowed with a packed lunch only.) Library books need to be brought in everyday as the children may need to do a quiz and to change them as these will be Accelerated Reader books. Children must ensure they bring their signed homework cards and reading records in on Friday to be checked. If you lose a reading record, you can get a replacement from the school office for a small fee. If you lose a homework card, please feel free to download a copy from this page or come and see me. 

 
A very warm welcome to all our new children and their parents that will be new to year 3 this year! This is a very exciting time for the children as they enter into the junior part of the school for the first time and become KS2 children. They have been in school for over a week now, and have already shown me just how hard they can work - and their beautiful manners! Well done year 3!
 
This is a year of lots of new experiences for the children. They will be learning new things such as how to play a brass instrument and a ukulele, learning French and they will have the opportunity to represent the school in lots of different musical and sporting events. Look out for letters coming home.
 
Please feel free to contact me if you have any problems. I am around from 8:30 am or after school, or please see the office for a longer appointment.
 
Reading
Please can you help and encourage your child to do five reads each week as part of their school homework. Reading is so important as it can also help their writing and spelling skills. Please tick your child`s homework card to show how many reads they have done and also celebrate their reading by filling in their reading record. Your child can also write in their reading record but we do ask parents to sign them please.
