Class 3


The challenge is on to read 6 new books, in addition to their school reading books, before the summer. We have a gorgeous box of colourful, new books with an 'under the sea' theme.laugh

Welcome to Class 3!

Dear Parents,

We hope you have all had a lovely Easter.  We have a busy term ahead....

PE – Mondays and Wednesdays -Please could children have trainers or pumps that fit and are named, as most PE will be outside this term.  

Spelling Homework  - Thursdays.

Spelling will continue as normal this term.  I will be sending out a new dictation sheet for them to work on this term.  Feel free to give them other sentences from the spellings that they have been given over this academic year.

Times Tables every Monday - please look in their yellow folders to see their scores and to see what they need to learn for the next week

The children are making really good progress with their times tables, so thank you very much for all the input with learning them at home.  The expectations for Y2 is that they are able to do 2,5,10 multiplication facts and their division facts,  without using fingers. Y3s are expected to be secure with Y2 expectations plus multiplication and division facts for 3,4,and 8. Y4s are expected to know them all up to x12 multiplication and division.


Regular reading, with your child reading to you a number of times during the week is great.  As your child progresses with their reading you may be spending more time discussing the more in-depth aspects of reading and comprehension rather than having to help your child work out individual words. Children who have their books changed for them, will continue to have them changed on Mondays.  Please can you make sure that you tick their reading record when your child needs to change their books, otherwise we will assume that they need to keep the book for longer and will not change it. Those who change their own books, choosing from the library, have an opportunity to do this every Monday/Thursday, but they can also change it at other convenient times, they just need to ask.

Main Topic - Wonders of the World

Science – Plant Growth and Flowers followed by Light and Shadows

Trips – Wildflower Fieldwork Trip linked to our Plant topic. More information to follow.

Other reminders

· please could you check that your child's name is in their clothes, bags and shoes, so any lost items can be returned swiftly to the correct child.

· children to have indoor shoes to change into

· children not bring toys or similar into school

If you have any questions, please ask.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Palmer and Mrs Robinson
