Reminders

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.

Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Wednesday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg black or navy jogging bottoms and their school sweatshirt or cardigan) in cooler weather.For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

Homework

This half term homework will be reading, times tables and spellings.

Times Tables

Y3 - By the end of Y3 children are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 times tables and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.

Reading

The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud  and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.

Spellings

Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 by the end of Year 4. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home. Click the file below to see the year 3/4 spelling list and practice some of the words at home.  We have also added the Year 2 spelling list that some children still need to practise.

Parent/Carer Curriculum Information

Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
