Year 3

Hello Year 3!

Welcome to Spring Term

Your teachers this year are Miss Gittens (3G)  and Miss Mason (3M).

 

P.E Days Spring 1 are MONDAY and THURSDAY.

 

 

Curriculum leaflet- Autumn term

Homework will being set weekly on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday via teams. Please let your child's class teacher know if you are having difficulties in accessing this. We can provide paper copies and a workbook on request.

 

TT Rockstars is a great way to learn and remember times tables. Your child has a login inside their organiser. Please encourage them to spend a few minutes jamming on TT Rockstars just a few times a week. We will incentivise it in school through a leaderboard for effort in practising their tables!

 

Reading books have been allocated. Your child has been given a day of the week on which they should bring their books for changing, written in their organiser.  Please, please do continue to read to your child and to hear them read aloud. Children enjoy reading when it is relaxed and not forced. If you find your child is reluctant to read, please come and talk to us for some ideas on how to get them more engaged.

 

Our PE days are MONDAY Spring term 1 and Thursday. Please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days. Please remove earrings. Thank yousmiley

On this page, there are a number of free maths games that the children should be able to access. It is important to build fluency in number facts with 10 and 20. Overlearning can help with quick recall. This will help the children apply these bonds quickly when solving more complex problems.

 

 

TT Rockstars:

Your child's login is in their organiser. Aim to login in three times a week and spend five minutes practising on the site. It can be played on a tablet/PC or phone.

 

Another site your child may enjoy is https://www.timestables.co.uk/. On this site, there are games and your child can choose one table to focus on at a time. There are also worksheets that you can use at home to support your child's learning.
