Wednesday 12th September 2018
During this term, the staff will be reviewing the award system for homework. In order to give this the time that it deserves and to do a thorough job, we will continue with the current system for this term, with one small change. We will be introducing a ‘Highly commended’ award which will take into account the effort that a child has put into their homework even if they have not completed all of the activities required to receive a bronze, silver or gold award. We hope that the information clear, but if you have any further questions, then please speak to me.
Please find an updated version of the homework under the homework page.
I will also give the children copies today to take home.
The mid-term homework review is Tuesday 30th October.
The final hand in date is Friday 30th November.
Welcome to the Year Three class page. Please keep checking this page for updates and information. Please be aware the Year Three class meeting is on Monday 10th September at 2:45 in the studio.
The Year 3 updated timetable is at the bottom of this page.
Each week we will have weekly times table and spelling tests. The children will need to pass their times tables 3 times before they move onto the next one. They will receive a certificate once they pass that times table. In the current National Curriculum, by Year 4, children are expected to ‘recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12’. This means that not only do they have to know all their times tables, but they also have to know the inverse division facts.
Please find the Autumn spelling list as well as times table support under the 'Homework' page.
On Monday I will send home reading books and reading records, as well as 'home school communication cards'. Please write in these cards information such as:
- if your child is going home with someone else,
- if they are leaving early due to an appointment,
- if you have any concerns or questions.
