Summer 2 term 2021
Our topics this term are 'Plants' and 'Animals including humans'.
A polite reminder that:
Monday - children to bring P.E. trainers, school shoes must be worn to school.
Tuesday - Children to come to school in their kits.
Wednesday - Forest School kits to be brought in.
Reading diaries must be brought in every day to log the children's wonderful reading.
Reading diaries will be counted on Fridays so children must be reading at least 4 times a week.
We will continue to use Class Dojo to award dojo points, set homework, keep you informed of your child's behaviour and achievements in school and to relay any school messages.
Children are to bring a pair of trainers to change into on Mondays. This term our focus will be on cricket.
Every Tuesday, children will be taking part in P.E. sessions. Please make sure that your child is wearing the appropriate, labelled kit on this day!
Forest School will take place on Wednesday afternoons. Although, we are trying to limit the amount of belongings brought in from home, your child must bring in a pair of wellies with their name on and a coat in order to participate in the Forest School sessions. If they wish, they may bring in some over trousers and other waterproofs which can be worn over the top of the school uniform, along with scarves, gloves and hats in the colder months.
Forest School gives children the opportunity to explore nature on the school grounds, with opportunities to build dens, use different tools and have a lot of fun!
Homework will be given to children every Friday and will need to be completed by the following Thursday. The completed homework will then need to be submitted via scanning or taking a picture, and uploading this to Class Dojo. We aim to link homework to an area of our current Topic, Maths or English. Please encourage them to complete this to the best of their abilities.
If you have any questions regarding homework, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
Please ensure that children are reading at least 4 times a week. This needs to be noted in their Home School Diary and signed by an adult. Rewards are given at the end of each half term for children who are reading 4 times or more each week. Reading diaries will be checked every Friday morning.
Children can change their reading books as often as they wish.
In Year 3, children need to know their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We have been revising the 2, 5 and 10 and the children have been introduced to the 3, 4 and 8 times tables over the year as this is a Year 3 requirement. We encourage a lot of practice and support at home so children are familiar with these times tables ready for our challenges in class. Times Tables Rock Stars is a great way for the children to practice and their login details will be given in their Home School Diary.
