Welcome to Year 3!
In Year 3 there are 2 classes and our teachers are Mrs Priston (CP) and Miss Sharp (MS). Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Holmes, Miss Burns and Mrs Blake.
Our topic this half term is:
Quiz time??!! In which sort of biome do we live? At different times of the year, what changes can be seen?
If you do any topic related work at home, please bring it in to show everyone!
This term, Class CP has PE on Mondays and Thursdays and Class MS has PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that full PE kits, including pumps or trainers, are in school for those days. PE kits will be sent home each half term to be washed.
In Year 3, you are encouraged to change your own reading book when you have finished it. Teaching Assistants are available to support with this to begin with, if necessary. Home-School Link books are collected in each morning, even if you haven't read, in case there are any messages. If you read 4 or more times each week, you earn a reward playtime on a Monday afternoon. Please make sure an adult signs the diary for it to count!
Spellings and times tables will be given out each Monday and tested the following week. In case you misplace your spellings, click below to view them online!
The spellings for this half term do not follow phonic or spelling patterns. They are all common exception (tricky) words. For this reason, there are no mystery words. Instead, all five words are provided for your child to practise.
Week 3 - to be tested on 25/6/18
Week 4 - to be tested on 2/7/18
Week 5 - to be tested on 9/7/18
Week 6 - to be tested on 16/7/18

Every Friday, a topic related homework task will be given. This is due by the following Friday morning at the latest! For each piece of homework completed to a good standard and handed in on time, you will earn a sticker on the reward chart. There will be a special homework reward at the end of each half term so get into good habits early. Parents are allowed to help you with homework tasks! You could even visit the library or look something up online.
