Welcome back to school! We are really pleased with how well you have all settled back into the school routine and your learning.

The teaching staff in Year 3 include: Mrs Priestley, Mrs Gibbons and Mr Edbrooke

If, over the year, you have any concerns, or you wish to speak to us at any time, please contact us through the class email or the  MyEd app. 

PE 

During the Autumn term, PE will be done on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Please ensure that your child comes to school on those days wearing their full PE Kit, including trainers.  Also, as the weather gets colder, please make sure that your child has jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt for outdoor PE.  For any children wearing earrings, please either ensure your child does not wear earrings on these days, or that they hand a named box of ear tape to their teacher, so they can cover their own earrings. 

Pupils with long hair need to tie this back. 

 

Mental Maths 

Children complete a Number Ninja test every Friday. The test involves the children answering multiplication and division questions against the clock. Your child should know which level they are currently working on. 

Home Reading books 

Reading is such an important part of children's learning, and reading at home helps develop children's fluency and understanding of a variety of texts.  We really appreciate your help with this through encouraging your children to read aloud to you at least three times a week.  This will be rewarded, as they can earn Dojo points and prizes for reading regularly! 

Home reading books will be sent home on Mondays and are required to be returned to school by Thursdays. 

Homework  

 

Spellings and timetables will be sent home every Friday to be tested every week.  Spellings will be based on Year 3/4 spellings, but may also be on words which your child may be spelling incorrectly in their writing.

This term we will be focusing on Place Value, addition and subtraction.  When looking at number, the children will think about how a number can be represented in different ways, comparing and ordering numbers and spotting the sequence where numbers are missing.
