Please see the 'Letters' sections below for details of year 3's trip to the Dickens Museum - payments should be made on laser by Friday 17th November.
Please let your child's teacher know if you have a DBS and are able to accompany us.
Please be aware that several cases of head lice have been detected in Year 3. Please ensure you check your child’s hair and, in instances where head lice or eggs are found, treat your child’s hair accordingly. Thank you.
Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:
- Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
- Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation will be recorded at the back of English books so you can see achievement and progress when English books are sent home.
- Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
- Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.
This week, we are focusing on the suffix 'ly.' The spellings will be as follows:
These will be covered in dictation on Monday (20th November)
Next week, we will be focusing on the suffix 'tion'. The spellings will be as follows:
