Welcome to Year 3 Penguins!
As I am sure you are aware, reading is the key to opening many fascinating and exciting doors for your child. Being able to read and understand the text is a building brick to creating your child's wall of learning. It is essential to your child's progress in all subject areas that you listen to them read as much as possible and discuss the text with them.
We are currently unable to send home the reading record books for you to sign and make comments but will be pleased to talk to you at the end of the school day about your child's reading.
Your child should be reading to you every night for approximately ten minutes before you spend five minutes discussing the text with them.
In Year 3 your child will participate in spelling lessons to learn different spelling rules. It would be beneficial for your child if you would kindly help them practise their weekly spellings which I will post here on our Class Page.
We will have a spelling test every Friday morning before a new spelling list will be given to the children for the following week.
It is very important for your child to practise their times tables as much a possible to enhance their learning in Maths. The children need to revise 2x 5x and 10x and learn 3x 4x and 8x.
Penguin's will participate in two P.E lessons each week taught by our Sports Coach Mr Ashraf. Our P.E lessons will be taught on a Monday and a Thursday, therefore all children will be expected to have their full P.E kit in school on these days.
I would advise that your child brings their P.E kit in at the start of a half term and takes it home at the end of a half term to be washed.This will ensure that your child will have their full P.E kit in school for the required days.
All children should have a purple tshirt, black shorts and black pumps which should be brought into school inside a drawstring bag. If your child wears earrings, please ensure that they are removed before school or they may not be able to participate in P.E. Finally, please check that your child's clothing is labelled as things can easily get misplaced.
