A massive welcome back to the youngest juniors in our school!
Mrs Dewsnap and myself are so thrilled with how everybody has started the new school year! We have many exciting and new pieces of learning planned.
If you'd like to know a little more about what we'll be learning, please read the attached plans as they are put online.
If you'd like to help your child's learning at home, here are a variety of things you could do for around 15 minutes each night. If there is anything specific you would like to know, please come and see us.
Reading - listen to your child read as much as possible, some children need the encouragement of reading to somebody. If your child would rather read to themselves on their own, then this is just as good. You could always talk to them about what they have read later.
Maths Rockstars - continue to run. These will help your children's maths responses be quick and confident. We will also be focussing on these essentials in lessons but a little extra each night is often the difference!
Key spellings will be placed inside your child's reading record (the whole set). These are the statutory spellings for the National Curriculum within Y3. Key spellings that your child needs to learn (from their writing) will be brought home half-termly as well.
Spelling Shed has been reset by school. Word lists will be placed on here to practise as we learn them in class.
Finally, PE days are on Thursdays and Fridays*, so can you please make sure that your children have appropriate PE kit in school on these days. Whenever possible, we will go outside. Please make sure your children have a white shirt, black shorts and trainers, however, they can bring extra layers to keep warm.
