Autumn Term 2019

Firstly, may I wish you and your child a very warm welcome to Year 3, I hope that you have had a great summer and are ready to start another year.

I have attached a programme of study to give a brief outline of the intended topics in Year 3. The format for homework has changed this year and you will be given further information when your child is given their homework folder. If your child is having any difficulties completing the work set, please drop me a note or call in to see me and I will be happy to provide them with some extra help. It would also be of great benefit for your child to read for at least 10 minutes each day with an adult. Reading will be monitored on a regular basis so I ask you to sign your child’s reading record books every time you hear them read. Rewards will be given to children as and when they complete enough reads within our ‘Reading Challenge’ reward system.

Our P.E session is on Thursday; please ensure that your child has full P.E kit in school on this day. An outdoor kit will be required as the winter months draw in. Please also ensure that earrings are removed on these days, as we cannot remove children’s earrings due to health and safety regulations.

If you have questions concerning any of the above, or wish to meet with me regarding your child, please make an appointment at the office.
