This term we have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday so all pupils will need to come into school wearing a P.E. kit on these days. Please remember that earrings should not be worn on P.E. days and must be removed before school. PE Kit must be as follows: PE top (OLCA logo), blue shorts, socks and pumps/trainers.
Homework will sent out each week. This will usually be through our online platform Seesaw. This must then be handed in by the following Thursday. The children will also be provided with spellings to practice each week. They will then have a spelling test to assess their progress in these.
In our school we provide depth in learning through the use of the White Rose scheme.
During year 3 children start to progress from the reading scheme onto accelerated reader where they choose their own books and then will complete a quiz on the book. This may take the children a while to get their heads round so please be patient with them and us. The children will start by completing an online reading test that will determine the level books they should be reading. The children can then lend books from the school library or books from home. Once they have completed the book they will take a quiz to check their understanding. The quiz typically has 5 questions and the pass rate is 90%.
Children are encouraged to read books at school. When they have finished reading them, they need to go on the following link and complete their quiz.
Year 3 love Times Table Rock Stars and it really helps with learning their times tables. We use TTR in school regularly and any additional practice at home is a real help.
