Welcome to Year 3
All of us in Y3 are looking forward to the start of an other virtual term.
This term's topic is A mixture of geography and history. The children will be learning all about Bristol.
For more information on the topic, please check your emails and the Home Learning 2020 page of the website.
Please do as much as you can during this term and stay busy. We want the children to get as much as possible from the work we have set but above all we want you all to be happy and safe.
Please keep us updated on everything you do on Tapestry when you can.
We miss you.
It is really important for the children to bring their reading book to school every day. Please keep your child's reading book inside their red book bag. As part of their morning routine, they are to place their reading book bag on the shelf inside the classroom so they can access it easily.
Reading books will be changed as needed on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ask your child to place the book in the appropriate box (book changing box by the front door) along with their reading record which must be signed by and adult to say they have read the book. We also ask all free readers to complete a book review in school before they change their own books.
Spelling and Mathletics
On Thursday, your child will receive 10 spellings for the week in red homework book. Please help your child to learn these spellings. Generally, these spellings will be set around a spelling pattern or rule or be selected from the Y 3/4 statutory spelling list. If your child finds spelling tricky, please select only 3 or 4 of the words to learn and encourage them to learn as many sounds as they can in the other words. We will also be doing activities around these words in class. We will spell check the given words every Thursday. Please make sure your child brings his or her homework book in to school every Thursday. If your child finds spelling less of a challenge, please feel free to learn some further words from the statutory Y 3/4 list on this page or find further words with same rule or pattern. Finally, please ensure your child understands the meaning of each word and can use it meaningfully in a sentence.
Mathletics activities will be allocated every Friday at 3:30 and will be checked for completion the next Friday. Mathletics passwords have been stuck at the back of your child's reading record.
The children now have Rock Stars passwords. Please encourage them to play in their own time.
If there are any issues, please talk to us or let the office know.
