WELCOME TO YEAR 3! We are delighted to  have you in our class and we are so excited for the year ahead. Please check the class website for regular updates about homework, home reading, uniform and events. You can also check our class Twitter page to see what we are up to in class. 


Reading at home

Reading is essential to support your child's learning and progress in school. The best way to do this is by working in partnership with parents and families. We therefore expect that children read at home every day, this is their homework and is the most important thing a child can do to ensure good progress. Chldren can also access Bug Club at home, we will write their logins in their reading records for you to access at home. 

Children's books will be changed every Friday and comments will be left in your child's reading record. 

Children participate in a grouped Guided Reading session every day and a whole class reading session on a Monday. During the grouped sessions, children will read with an adult or complete a reading activity linked to our class book, 'The Sea Book' by Charlotte Milner. We are learning lots about non-fiction texts, and all about our oceans. 


Spellings will be given out every Friday and are in the form of a handwriting worksheet. Children are expected to complete these and bring them back to school the following week before a test on Friday afternoon. If your child is given seperate spellings, these link with the levelled books that they are reading in school with an adult. Your children will be tested on these ones. 


This week we have been studying the artist Hokusai and created some lovely paintings of his work. We have also done lots of art for mental health week!

Our driver text this term is 'Seal Surfer' By Micheal Foreman. We are doing lots of wonderful creative writing around this text and will be finishing with a recount. 


P.E will take place every Tuesday afternoon. Children can come to school in comfy sport gear or their P.E kits. Throughout the year, children will still have access to our Forest School, and learning outdoors will be integrated into our class sessions. 


In year 3, children learn their 3, 4 and 8 timestables. Fluency in their tables helps to support children's learning in other areas of Maths. Children have been given a Timestables Rockstars login in which is in the front of their reading record. You can log on at home and practice! We will also send home some timestable worksheets on a Friday for some extra practice!
