I am delighted to welcome all our new Year 3 children into KS2 this term and look forward to a fun packed term ahead. Mr Ford will be covering in Year 3 for this term.
Our value for this term is Thankfulness.
Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is... Castles! We will be exploring the Norman invasion of Britain and the motte and bailey castles they created. This will then progress onto looking at the stone castles that followed.
A Future Stars coach is coming in to give Year 3 coaching In Door Multiskills on Thursday afternoons in Term 1. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school for Thursdays and Fridays.
Homework will be given out on Friday afternoons and is on for the following Wednesday. Please ask if you have
any questions regards the sheet and could I ask that all parents make sure they are signing off their child's reading each week.
Spellings are also given out on a Friday afternoon and we will have a weekly spelling test. This is in addition to the list spellings they practice throughout the year.
Pupils in Year 3 bring home weekly spellings which focus on the spelling rules and patterns in the National Curriculum.
In addition, the NC includes a word list for each of the phases. From the Year 3/4 words the easier words have been selected and made into 3 word lists which the pupils need to be able to spell by the end of the year, both in tests and in their everyday writing. Most pupils will given a sheet with the lists on to begin learning list 1 at home. Please encourage them to do this in a variety of ways.
