Welcome to Year 3
Welcome to Year 3 and Key Stage Two! I am really looking forward to working with you and your child over the next school year. Year 3 is a great year, with lots to learn and enjoy. As with every new school year, Year 3 will have number of new routines and challenges. It will be a fun year but also hard work. Mrs Findley and I will be with the children every step of the way to ensure that they are prepared for the rest of their journey through Key Stage Two.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at any point throughout the year. I am happy to help in whatever way I can.
PE kits should be brought in at the start of the week and will be sent home on a Friday.
PE will normally be on a Thursday afternoon and a Friday morning.
Year 3 Autumn 1 Homework
In Year 3, regular homework is set. Homework is set on Friday each week and must be handed in on, or before, the Wednesday of the following week. The following activities are set each week:
In Key Stage Two, we encourage children to become more independent readers and the expectation is that pupils read at home each day for at least 10 minutes. This term, your child will select reading books, of the appropriate level for them, with an adult from either the class book corner or school library. One reading book will stay at school in their tray and another will be sent home. The children can bring in a book from home to read, however this needs to be clearly labelled and it is their responsibility to look after it. We recommend that children choose a variety of authors and genres to read. The children are required to record the details of their reading in their green reading records. In order for the children to succeed at school, children need to be able to read fluently, have varied and rich vocabulary and fully comprehend what they have read.
