Every week the children will be given either a piece of maths or English homework for them to complete to consolidate learning in class.
They may be given a topical piece of homework relating to a celebration or particular time of year. Sometimes they will be given a task with the intention to prompt a discussion or alternatively they may be asked to do some research in preparation for something we are learning about in class.
By the end of year 3 children are expected to know their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables. Although we do work on these, any practice and help you can give at home will help embed them.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned by Wednesday the following week.
We would like your child to read with you and a log to be made in their yellow reading journals. Any additional discussion around the text can enhance your child's progress, as can reading to them, especially stories that they might not otherwise be able to read themselves.
Every child needs a water bottle with a sports cap-children will only be allowed water in class. This will ensure your child remains hydrated during the day.
We will have snack time each day after play and children need to bring in a piece of fruit.
Book bags with reading books and yellow journals must be in school every day. In year 3, children are expected to change their own books first thing in the morning if they have finished reading them.
Please return school library books on a Wednesday, so they can be ticked off and taken back to the library before new ones are issued.
PE kits must come into school every Monday. They may be taken home on a Friday for washing but please ensure they are back in school for Monday,
PE kits should include
White/green t-shirt (Children must change their shirt for PE)
Track suit bottoms (black or green)
Trainers (children cannot wear their school shoes for PE)
Please ensure all items of clothing and snack pots/water bottles are labelled with your child's name. If they do not have a name in/on it is incredibly difficult to reunite them with their owner.
