I hope you have all had a lovely holiday with your children. Our class page will be updated regularly with key information and events taking place in Year 3.
year 3 Curriculum
Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
Tuesday: Forest School
Wednesday: Outdoor PE
Our P.E. slots will be both indoors and outdoors therefore please could the children have an indoor P.E. kit and outdoor P.E. kit in school all week. We will be having indoor P.E. on a Monday afternoon and outdoor P.E. on Wednesday afternoon. Indoor P.E kit should include a pair of black shorts or tight leggings and a white t-shirt. Outdoor P.E. kit should include a pair of black joggers or leggings, a white t-shirt, a jumper and trainers. Please note that jewellery should not be worn for PE and to prevent injury all earrings should be removed for P.E. If your child is unable to remove their own earrings then they should be removed in the morning before school or plasters will need to be sent in with your child so that they can cover their earrings before PE. Children with long hair will need a hair tie for P.E.
During Spring term 1, children in Y3 will have Forest School sessions on Tuesdays. Please make sure that your child has a warm jumper, jogging bottoms, wellies, hat, scarf and gloves in school which they can change into so that they are warm outside during the sessions.
During Summer term, children in Y3 will begin swimming lessons at Reddish Vale High School on Thursday afternoons. Swimming is a statutory part of the National Curriculum and so it is very important that your child attends all the sessions offered. Please make sure that your child has a swimming kit in school every Thursday (trunks/shorts for boys and swimming costume for girls) and a towel. Children are not permitted to wear jewellery whilst swimming.
The children will be given homework each week on a Friday to be returned by the Wednesday of the following week. The homework will usually consist of a Maths task, English task, Spellings and Times Tables. Occasionally the children maybe asked to find out information for a Science or History topic. It is very important that children complete homework tasks and please try to develop their independence with this. If your child finds any particular task really challenging and you have had to give a lot of support, please write a comment on the sheet/page.
Library Day - Tuesday
Each child will be heard reading each week, we expect reading books to be in school every day so this is possible. The children also have sessions where they read other texts as a class and in partners. Their progress and understanding will be greatly improved if you hear them read for 10 minutes each day and discuss what they have read with them.
It is important that the children not only read the words, but understand the meaning of the words. Please complete their reading journal to reflect the practise being done at home. Please note: We do not have a designated day for changing books. The children can change their school reading book once an adult has signed their reading record to show that the book has been completed.
I hope this information is useful and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask or send a message on Dojo.
