Dear Parents,​
‘WELCOME’ from the Year 3 team! We intend to keep you well informed about all of the exciting experiences and learning that we will be encountering on our journey as we venture into Year 3!​
Below you should find a curriculum map that will inform you of some of the things that we will do in the Autumn term, please click on the link. There is some extra information below about Year 3.​
PE this term is both inside and outside, but it would be helpful if your child’s kit could remain in school and we will send it home at the end of the half term.​
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be returned on the following Tuesday.​
We use a spelling scheme where children will have a daily spelling lesson. ​
Reading and times tables​
As ever, we encourage children to read and practise times tables on a daily basis, with opportunities for an adult to hear them read/ discuss their reading. In Year 3 the expectation is that they read for 20 minutes per night. Please could you remind your child that they need to bring their book in with them every day. Children in Year 3 will have their reading books changed on a Monday and a Thursday every week but still need to read every night and bring their reading books and signed reading records in everyday. They will have a greater independence in choosing their own books this year.​
By having their reading book for longer, we hope children will become much more familiar with their book, reading it more than once. This will increase and improve their fluency in reading. ​
We truly value your support in making your child’s time in Year 3 not only a super year of learning, but also create memories that they will cherish. Thank you in advance for your continuing support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask​
Mrs Kavanagh & Mrs Petrucci.  ​
The Year 3 team.​
