Welcome to 3S's class page
I am very much looking forward to welcoming you all back to school on Monday. Throughout the first term in Year 3 we will be learning lots of exciting and new things including Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will be learning new times tables such as 3, 4 and 8 times tables and will have plenty of fun along the way!
In Year 3 you will be seeing these members of staff:

From Monday all children will need to come to school wearing a coat. They are allowed to bring a bookbag, healthy snack (a piece of fruit/vegetable) and a water bottle. Your child must take home their water bottle at the end of the day and ensure it is cleaned overnight. Your child is only allowed to bring a bookbag into school. No large bags (rucksacks etc) will be allowed in school.
There is an expectation that your child will read for at least 20 minutes every night.
All the children have now been assessed and given a stage reading book to bring home. Please could you make sure this goes home every night and is returned to school the next morning. Books will only be changed on a Monday and Friday due to COVID restrictions.
On Purple Mash
Every Friday the children will have a times table task to complete.
On Purple Mash
Every Friday the children will have a new chapter to read on Purple Mash and a short quiz to check their inference skills.
Every Friday, the children will be set a new spelling quiz on Purple Mash. This will consolidate the spellings we have been learning in class. The children will have a week to complete the activity. They will earn Class Dojo points for completing the activity. They should have come home with their Purple Mash log in but if they are unsure please see us to receive a new one.
Our outdoor PE session is on a Monday afternoon. Please can you ENSURE your child comes to school on a Monday wearing their OUTDOOR PE kit. (blue/black jogging bottoms only please).
Our indoor PE session is on a Tuesday morning. Please can you ENSURE your child comes to school on a Tuesday wearing their OUTDOOR PE kit. (blue/black jogging bottoms only please).
Children will wear their PE kit for the full day and will be required to have it washed and dried ready for the next week.
The first PE lesson will take place on Monday 7th September.
During the Autumn term there will be no extra-curricular clubs due to the mixing of bubbles.
