General Info

Topics

The topics this year will include: Volcanoes, Stone Age, Ancient Egypt, and Zoo.

Timetable and daily routine

Year 3 are now on the KS2 timetable.   Break time will be at 11am until 11.20am, and lunch from 12.20pm until 1.20pm.  We are really pleased with the way the children have embraced entering the classroom on their own in the morning.  Children line up in the large playground in the mornings and are dismissed from the classrooms at the end of the day.  Please ensure that both you and your child are aware of your meeting point.  Children should return to the classroom if they cannot find the adult who is collecting them. 

Homework

Homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday.  Homework will be discussed with the children and they will be provided with verbal feedback.  Please stick in any sheets which you may be given to keep all the homework together.  Each piece of homework will should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.  If homework has not been submitted by Thursday the children will be expected to complete it during Golden Time.  If there is a problem with the homework or family commitments have meant that your child hasn’t had chance to complete it, please send in a note.

Mulitplication tables

This year the focus for multiplication tables is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10.  These should be learnt in and out of order, along with the corresponding division facts.  Please encourage your child to practise these at home.

PE Kits

Please ensure PE kits are in school all week and all items of kit and uniforms are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  Children will need trainers and tracksuit trousers for outdoor PE and may benefit from a jumper too. Swimming will be later in the year for all classes.

Water Bottles

Please ensure your child brings their water bottle to school daily.  As a school we encourage children to drink regularly in order to help them concentrate.

Medical issues and allergies

Please ensure that your child’s class teacher is aware if there are any allergies or other medical conditions that they should know about.
