Children will continue to receive weekly homework in Year 3. This will be set on a Friday in both classes and will consist of a piece of GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling), dictation and an online maths activity. The maths activity will be through Mathletics. Completion of the maths activity and the GPS test will occur on the following Friday. Please help your child to be prepared and give them a prompt to ensure they have their Homework Diary every Friday.
Where possible encourage your child to read daily at home, even if it is just five minutes squeezed in. It doesn’t have to be their book from school, it could be a magazine, comic, annual or anything else they enjoy. Times table games would also help, as the children are currently working on the three, four and eight times tables this year.
Sydney and Brisbane have swimming on Wednesday and PE on Friday. Please encourage your child to take responsibility for ensuring they have the required kit in school. They should have a white t-shirt and blue/black shorts or jogging bottoms. It is suggested that children with earrings leave them out for that day.
Children are allowed to have water bottles in class as it is good for them to keep hydrated throughout the day. However, they should only contain water: no juice please!
As part of the school’s Behaviour Policy we are really excited to be continuing with Class Dojo. By connecting with Class Dojo you are able to see when your child has received a merit, as well as keep up-to-date with events in class through Our Class Story.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate in coming in to speak to us. Many thanks for your continued support.
