Autumn Term 2018

Please see below a programme of study to give a brief outline of the intended topics in Year 3. Home learning will be given to the children on a half termly basis with spelling and times tables and optional tasks to complete. If your child is having any difficulties completing the work set, please drop us a note or call in to see us and we 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 we 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 Wednesday; 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 us regarding your child, please make an appointment at the office.
