Welcome to the Year 3 Website page.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope this finds you well on another lovely summer morning. It's been an incredibly busy few weeks here, completing our end of year assessments, writing reports and doing what we love - teaching! Recent assessments confirm our knowledge that children have made great progress this year and it's lovely for us to be able to celebrate this with you in their reports.
You have already received our 'Summer 2' newsletter from the school secretaries and I have attached it below for your reference. I have also attached this week's home learning. As always, please continue to make good use of Times Table Rock Stars and Busy Things and.....read, read, read, read, read. Everyday - no excuses! With this in mind, there is a real 'buzz' around reading in Year 3 at the moment, with children making great use of our new class reading boxes. The 'Beastquest' series and any books by Dick King-Smith are our current favourites.
Our weather looks a little mixed over the next few days, so if you see a bright patch, make the most of it! Practice throwing, sprinting, hurdling, kicking for goals and shooting hoops in preparation for next week's Sports Day. We are, like you, very disappointed to be unable to welcome you to watch and take part but as you know we are still operating under current COVID guidelines. We'll take lots of photos however and will save them to the school's Facebook page.
Many thanks for your continued support!
Best wishes from Mr McAllister & Mr Murphy
- Children will need to access Times Tables Rock Stars (www.ttrockstars.com) frequently as part of their developing maths fluency practice. For this they will require their log in details which are unchanged from Y2.
- Please see the attachment below for spelling learning that your child can complete at home.
- Every child has a yellow reading diary. Please hear your child read, and read to your child daily, and record this in their diary. We will collect these in every Thursday for monitoring.
- Please make regular use of the games and activities on www.busythings.co.uk (login: home 8972 password: crazy 8362). There's tons of great learning opportunities on here which can help with fluency, speed and recall. Regular, 10 minute 'bursts' are the best way to use this website.
