Welcome to Key Stage 2 with...
Miss Dziewguc - Sycamore
Miss Stoddart - Chestnut
Every Thursday afternoon we will be going swimming, right up until the end of Year 3. So please make sure that you always have your swimming kit with you and ready.
Your swimming kit should consists of a costume/ swimming trunks, a towel, a swimming hat for anyone with long hair. All items should be labelled.
Children can bring a healthy snack with them too.
In Year 3 we encourage everyone to bring a school bag every day. In this, children should have a pencil case, their reading book, their Reading Journal and their Home School Diary. This allows them to become more independent with their learning.
We are also trying incredibly hard to improve our handwriting and so we are using handwriting pens to make our writing neater. Handwriting pens can be bought in the office. In addition to this, they should have a pencil, colouring pencils, a sharpener, rubber and ruler in their pencil case.
Every Wednesday morning Year 3 will have their PE lessons. The children should have a named PE kit in school, which should consist of a plain white t-shirt, blue shorts/tracksuit bottoms and plimsolls/trainers. It is possible to purchase PE kit from the school office.
Times Table Superstars
In Year 3, children are now expected to be fluent in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. One way in which we test this is through a TTSS weekly quickfire quiz. Please ensure that you are supporting your child in becoming confident in these tables.
There will be a quickfire quiz on a Tuesday lunchtime, so over the weekend is the perfect time to keep practicing at home to try and get your TTSS award! If you pass, you will receive your certificate and it will also be announced in assembly!
By the end of Year 3, children should be able to recall their 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
