In Year 3, you can look forward to learning lots of exciting things, such as how to make bread, why the Romans invaded Britain, how light reaches our eyes, what is in our local area, how a volcano erupts and much more!
Each year 3 class are spending a half term having swimming lessons at Copley pool. Y3W will begin on Friday 20th April. Y3S-MD will begin on Friday 15th June. No earrings are allowed in Copley pool so please ensure they are removed before coming to school.
Children choose a reading book any day to keep for one week. They are only allowed to choose a new book if their old book has been finished and an adult has confirmed this in their planner. The children need to aim to read one book per week if they are to progress in their reading.
Children will receive homework on a Friday and are asked to hand it by the following Friday. This will usually consist of an English task linked to our learning. It may also link to our topic or science work and involve a more extended task. In addition to this the children will receive a short Maths task to complete every day from Monday to Thursday (usually one question based on work in class).
The children will take part in two sessions of P.E. a week. Your children will be taught by their teacher and by sports coaches. The days will be confirmed in the children's planners. Our P.E coaches aim to be outside most sessions weather permitting so children will need an outdoor P.E kit. Please ensure your child has their full kit in school every week. During the summer term, children need to have outdoor PE kit in school and a cap and sun cream, particularly on hot days.
Your child can bring in a low-fat, low-sugar, low-salt snack for break times. These will be stored in their trays or school bags on arrival every morning.
We encourage children to have a clear plastic, named water bottle in school at all times. It should be plain, still water that can be refilled at school. For hygiene reasons we ask that children take them home each Friday night to be washed and refilled.
