Hello Year 3!
Here are some useful links for you to use whilst you are learning at home. We will continue to post regularly on Dojo but you might find it helpful to have all the links in one place rather than scrolling through to find what you need.
We will add more over the coming weeks as well as setting activities via Portfolios on Dojo.
In addition to your school activities, please take time to do some exercise, relax and have fun playing.
Stay safe and keep smiling!

Welcome to Year 3
Our topic this term is Fur, Feathers and Scales. We will be visiting The Yorkshire Wildlife Park where the children will gain first hand experiences and get up close and personal with a variety of animals. I'm sure we will have a fantastic day and produce lots of wonderful work following our visit.
Homework - this will be sent out on a Friday (Numeracy or Reading focus) and is due in the following Wednesday.
Spellings will be sent home on Wednesdays in your child's spelling log book. These will consist of 5 words from the current week's spelling rule plus 5 statutory words. The children will be tested on the rule, not necessarily the 5 words that have been set. This is to ensure that the children learn the rule in order to apply it in their writing across the curriculum. The rule for each week is printed in the log book.
Please click on the link below for a copy of the Year 3 Statutory spellings.
Your children are becoming fluent and expressive readers, but understanding the text that they are reading is just as important. Please use the bookmarks provided to help you question your child's understanding of the book they are reading and encourage them to talk about what they have read. We ask that you aim to read with your child 5 times per week - remember this can include a range of reading material e.g. magazines, comics, a recipe etc. We know that finding the time can be tricky, but even a 5 minute read can make a difference! There will be reading incentives throughout the year. Please remember to sign your child's book and ensure they bring it into school every Friday.
Our PE lessons for the Autumn term will be Tennis on a Monday and Hockey on a Thursday.
If you have any worries or questions, just pop in at the end of the day.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Atkin and Mrs McCready
