YEAR 3 REMINDERS
Topic Homework - A reminder that Topic Homework is handed in every WEDNESDAY - one task at a time please! You can choose which task you would like to do every week. Please make sure written tasks are done in pencil and your name is on each task you hand in. Homework that is of a high standard will be put into our topic books or put on our topic display board!
Maths Homework - This will be handed out on FRIDAYS (unless otherwise notified). Homework must be done in pencil and handed in by the following THURSDAY. Maths homework will be based on learning that has gone on in the classroom in the week. Our very popular '99 club' (times table challenge) is done every Wednesday so practising these times table facts every week is encouraged.
Spellings - Spellings are done half termly. At the beginning of every half term, your child will be given a set of spelling words to practise at home as well as in school. We will test these spellings in the last week of every half term.
Reading - Try and do some reading as much as you can most nights - around 15/20 minutes. Please use your reading journal to record what text you are reading and the date you started it. After you have finished, write a mini review about what you have read and perhaps a small picture of a favourite part or a favourite character! Remember, you can read your book to adults at home - it is still good for them hear you read and to discuss the book together! Final reminder, your reading book and journal must come to school each day for independent reading times.
PE - PE for the Summer term will be on Tuesday Mornings and Wednesday afternoons and both sessions will be outside.
GENERAL REMINDERS - Our corridors in school are narrow and there is limited space where our pegs are. It would helpful to have small rucksacks for pegs and to use a drawstring bag (like our school PE bag) to bring swimming kits in. Children can still use a school book bag which can fit in their drawer in the classroom if they wish. Please provide a water bottle for your child which can be kept in the classroom. Lost jumpers, cardigans, coats etc are much better found again if they have a name in it, please do check that all uniform is clearly labelled including PE kits.
