Year 3 Autumn Term Newsletter 2017/18

Homework

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 & spelling) dictation and a maths activity. Some maths activities will be through Mathletics and your child will have kept their previous log on and password, however we will send this home again if you have lost it. The GPS test will occur on a Thursday and any paper maths homework will also be due in on Thursdays. Please help your child to be prepared and give them a prompt to ensure they have their Homework Diary every Thursday so we can give diaries back on a Friday with new homework.

Where possible encourage your child to read daily at home, even if it is just 5 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 3, 4 and 8 times tables this year.

Alongside weekly homework we may ask children to carry out research to support their in school independent projects.

Swimming & PE

Just a reminder that Sydney and Brisbane have swimming on a Friday and outdoor PE on a Wednesday. Please encourage your child to take responsibility for ensuring they have the required kit in school. Please refer to the website for correct kit lists.

Water bottles

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!

Class Dojo

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 dojo, 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.
