Hello everyone –
it is fantastic to be back and getting to know you all.

In the event of a school closure, please check our Year 3 Curriculum area for work which will be set for you.

General Information

P.E.

Our PE sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday.
We will be sending your child’s PE kit home on Thursday or Friday for washing, please return it to school on the following Monday.

If your child is unable to take part in PE due to injury please write a note explaining the extent of the injury and which activities your child is unable to participate in so that we can find a suitable way of involving them in the lesson.

Earrings should be covered with plasters or tape for PE (if they cannot be removed). Please ensure your child is provided with something suitable on PE days.
Long hair should be tied back.

Homework

We expect children to read to someone every day (when possible) and for that reading to be recorded by an adult in the Reading Record.
We also expect children to learn spellings and times table facts as detailed in the key stage information letter (see link below).
Rapid Recall sheets are available to print via the school website. We give the children 1 minute to complete Rapid Recall and 3 minutes to complete the Times Tables sheet in Key Stage 2.

Spelling Tests will take place on FRIDAY.
Each Friday, children will be given the results of the previous week’s spelling test to record in their spelling journal as well as the next set of spellings to learn.
We follow the No Nonsense Spelling scheme (see Spelling Policy) and will test only 5 spellings weekly as recommended by the Programme. We will teach the children a range of strategies to help support independent spellings.
