Welcome to Year 3, Nightingales!
Our new year together begins, and with it comes exciting challenges, adventures and opportunities to learn.
We shall embark on some fascinating topics, visit some intriguing places and develop the skills you have already achieved in your previous classes.
Ahead of the new term, there are a few pieces of information which may be helpful in your preparation for school.
Please ensure that children are wearing the correct school uniform each day, with black trousers, pinafore or skirt; emerald green sweater, cardigan or polo shirt bearing the school logo and a white shirt; black or white school socks or tights and black, fastened shoes or trainers (not slip on or open toe shoes).
It is important that children have the correct PE kit available for sports lessons. Children will need an emerald green polo shirt bearing the school logo, black shorts and black trainers or plimsolls. With the temperatures becoming colder over the coming months, please make sure that children have warm, black trousers or tracksuit bottoms and a black fleece bearing the school logo. Girls who wear tights in school will require black or white PE socks also.
Homework and spellings
Homework will be handed out every Wednesday and books will need to be returned for marking by the following Monday. Please ensure that all homework is completed and that children practice their Year 3 spellings in readiness for their spelling task each Monday morning.
Reading at home
It is vital to your child's development, vocabulary and imagination that they read regularly. Please make sure that book bags are brought in to school every day, along with reading books and completed reading records. Children should read at least five times a week aloud to an adult at home and that these occasions are recorded in the reading records.
