Welcome to Year 3 

Our topic this term is Extreme Earth. We will be visiting The National Coal Mining Museum where the children will gain first hand experiences and explore what life was like working down the mine. I'm sure we will have a fantastic day and produce lots of wonderful work following our visit.  

Homework - this will be sent out on a Friday (Numeracy or Literacy focus) and is due in the following Wednesday.

Spellings will be sent home on Wednesdays in your child's spelling log book. These will consist of 5 words from the current week's spelling rule plus 5 statutory words. The children will be tested on the rule, not necessarily the 5 words that have been set. This is to ensure that the children learn the rule in order to apply it in their writing across the curriculum. The rule for each week is printed in the log book.

Please click on the link below for a copy of the Year 3 Statutory spellings.

Year 3 Statutory Spellings

 

Reading

Your children are becoming fluent and expressive readers, but understanding the text that they are reading is just as important. Please use the bookmarks provided to help you question your child's understanding of the book they are reading and encourage them to talk about what they have read. We ask that you aim to read with your child 5 times per week - remember this can include a range of reading material e.g. magazines, comics, a recipe etc. We know that finding the time can be tricky, but even a 5 minute read can make a difference! On a Friday, we will check how many reads your child has completed and every 10 reads earns a prize from our Lucky Dip bag. Please remember to sign your child's book and ensure they bring it into school every Friday. 

 

PE
Our PE lessons for the Summer term will be Rounders on a Tuesday and Athletics on a Friday.  Please ensure children have indoor and outdoor kit which is clearly named. 

 

If you have any worries or questions, just pop in at the end of the day.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Atkin and Mrs McCready
