Welcome to Year 3 - Lapwings class!
Homework is given out every Friday and should be handed back in the following Wednesday. This will include a list of 10 spellings of which the children will be tested on the next Friday. The other part of the homework will vary, usually linked to Literacy, Maths, Topic or Art and will be either an extension or introduction to the work we have been covering in class.
Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children must have the correct PE kit in school with them on these days. The clothing should be black trousers/shorts, a white t-shirt, plain jumper and pumps/trainers. Please ensure your child's PE kit is suitable for all weathers and temperatures.
Reading is extremely beneficial for your child and is encouraged in any form. Children should be reading daily at home and signing their reading records. Parents are encouraged to listen to their child read or read with them, also signing their reading record. Children read daily in school and are provided with daily opportunities to change their reading books. Children should have a reading book in school with them every day.
In Lapwings, we complete a weekly times tables test. Children are encouraged to beat their score each week and then identify where extra practice is needed. 'Times Tables Rock Stars' is a fun and exciting way for the children to practise!
