Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 and to Key Stage 2.

We will be updating this page weekly to let you know what we have coming up the following week. We will also add any other key news.

 

 

 

Our PE days are: Tuesdays (outdoor) and Thursdays (indoor).  Please ensure your named PE kit is in school for these sessions.

Pencil case - you may bring in one named pencil case. Some things you might like to include are: pencil, rubber, sharpener, coloured pen (any) for when we self mark our work, Pritt Stick, small ruler and a few colouring pencils. Of course, all of these things are provided by school anyway, some children just like to bring their own. Please name each item to avoid anything getting lost. Thank you.

Pens - at some point in Year 3 or 4, children will be awarded their pen licence and will be able to write in a pen. More information on this to follow!

We also look forward to sharing with you what we have been up to in the classroom. Look out for tweets from Year 3 on the Woodland Grange Twitter feed. We look forward to teaching your children our exciting and creative curriculum.

Dance Mat Typing

This is a fantastic resource to improve your typing skills. You can practise at home, but you will need a keyboard for this (either on a laptop/desktop computer or a wireless one connected to a tablet).

Year 3 general information

Reading

All children are expected to read at least 3 times a week at home to an adult and have their diary signed. They can change their reading book whenever they would like to, just bring it to one of the adults in the classroom. We monitor all reading at home on a weekly basis. Please ensure children bring their reading book and diary to school on a daily basis.

Spellings

We will conduct our weekly spelling sessions on a Friday. Children will bring home a list of spellings to learn and spelling related homework which will be due in and tested the following Friday.

Times tables

We encourage all children to practise their tables at home via Times Tables Rock Stars. We organise weekly tournements between the classes. 

In Year 4, the children will complete a times tables test. They need to know all their times tables up to 12 x 12 and answer them as quickly as possible (ideally quicker than 6 seconds). 

Homework

Homework is set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday.   Any homework sheets can be taken home and brought back to school using the homework folder.

Snacks and water bottles

Please ensure your child has a snack and water bottle in school daily. Key stage 2 children no longer receive funded fruit. Please name snack boxes and water bottles. Thank you.

PE

Children will come home in their PE kit on a Tuesday after outdoor PE in the afternoon. Children may come to school in their PE kit on a Thursday. They must bring their school uniform to change into after PE. Please ensure girls have a pair of socks in their PE bags, especially for when they are wearing tights.
