Homework is set on a Thursday and due by Tuesday the following week.  Please ensure that your child completes this every week. 

The cover sheet has a section for you to complete to show us that you have seen your child's homework . 

 

There may be To-Do tasks on Purple Mash, or 'nuggets' on Century. These will be explained in the cover sheet.

Maths games will be given out on Wednesday and need to be returned the following Monday.

 

Reading

Please ensure you are reading with your child as often as possible. All children have a reading log and they should be filling it in regularly. When reading with your child; you can ask them to predict what might happen next, what their favourite part was, what they might change, what the story is about. This will really help their understanding.

Your child will have guided reading sessions in class and some pupils will continue to bring home phonics books for a time.

As pupils in Year 3 will be reading longer books, they may not need to change their books so frequently.  

 

Spellings

Spelling tests will take place on a Friday morning. New words will be given out on Friday also.  Please practise these:

Spellings 24th May

 

PE  :

Indoor gymnastics or dance: Mondays.

Outdoor games: Fridays.

Generally speaking, if your child is well enough to be in school then we would expect them to participate in all PE.

Please let us know though, if there is a particular reason that your child can not participate in the PE lesson.

Swimming will be an intensive 2-week daily lesson in the summer term:

Week beginning 20th May until half term, then week beginning 3rd June after half term.

Potential lockdown actions

In the event of having to go into lockdown or isolation, there is general work for English, Maths, Science and some Topic work on the school website; activities can be adapted for all children.

You may also wish to look at Oak National Academy for learning opportunities

In the event that:

Your child is absent (isolating): spelling lists and weekly homework activities/tasks can be found here. In year 3, your child will also be given a Century login for them to access the platform.

Should the class go into lockdown: learning will be communicated via the school website. Your child will be expected to be online for a whole class daily zoom and an additional group of 6 zoom, once a week. 

How can work be accessed if computer technology is not available?

Please let the office know as soon as possible. Work can be printed on a Wednesday for collection from school.
