This week is Sports Week! Please come into school in PE kit everyday as in school we have lots of exciting events taking place.
Our PE day is Wednesday 30th June . Please come in PE kit for the day.
Project – Nature
In school we have been practising our times tables and each child has their own target. please can we ask that you continue to practise at home and reinforce the learning that is being undertaken. By the end of Year 3 all children should know their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times table.
In English this week we will be beginning to look at adventure stories and the way authors use setting and character descriptions.
Our spelling test will be on Friday. We appreciate the spellings are beginning to feel quite tricky but these are spellings that are set by the National Curriculum and we have done our best to break them down into manageable chunks with a similar theme. Please continue to reassure your children that we do not wish them to worry about their spellings, all we ask is they try their best. The spellings for this week are: sentence, special, strange, encourage, double, rough, mystery, though and although. Please find here our updated weekly list – Updated – Year 3 spelling list for 2020-2021
Times Table Rockstars
All of the children have been sent home a username and password for Times Table Rockstars (TTRS). This is a fantastic website that we use throughout Key Stage 2 to help consolidate and continuously practice the children’s times tables. By the end of Year 2, children should be able to recall the 2, 5 and 10 tables and Year 3 the 3, 4 and 8’s. At the end of Year 4, all children nationally will complete a multiplication test up to 12×12 and these will be asked randomly so it is important they can recall them out of order.
We have recently assessed all the children with their times tables and all have been giving a target which they should know, as they have been told several times, so it will be worth checking in with them and focusing on this.
