Please help us by looking at telling the time with your children at home.  Year 3 need to be able to tell and write  the time from a digital clock, an analogue clock, including using Roman Numerals, in both 12 and 24 hour times. They need to know how many seconds are in a minute, how many minutes in an hour, how many hours in a day, how many days in a week and how many weeks and months are in a year.

Welcome back to Term 5 

We are looking at Forces and Moving on to the Bronze Age this term.

We are writing instructions about building a roundhouse and hope to make a small one in the school grounds, weather permitting! Ms Weston will collect some cow dung so we can really try our hand at wattle and daub as a construction material. That will make a change from Lego!

Swimming

We are swimming every Tuesday. Please make sure your child has a costume and a towel. If they have long hair it needs to be tied up for safety reasons. 

The suggested contribution for swimming is £3.50 or £2 for pupil premium children.

PE is now Wednesday afternoon.

Please make sure your child has a kit appropriate for outside PE as it is still very cold.

Kit 

We are unable to provide kits for your children if they forget theirs.

HOMEWORK

All children in key stage 2 are expected to read at home at least 3 times a week. This needs to be recorded in their reading records so we can count points towards the end of term homework reward. If you child does not have their record, please note down the date, what they read and who heard them on a scrap of paper and we will still count it towards the reward.

Children are also responsible for changing their own reading books and they are given opportunities to do this every day.

We will be giving out a spellings list every Friday to be learnt (and handed in) by the following Friday. These are incredibly important as your child is learning a wealth of tricky words and spelling patterns to help them through primary school and to succeed in secondary school. We appreciate your efforts in encouraging and supporting your child.

 

SPELLINGS

Spellings are sent out weekly. Please check you child's book bag.

 

 

 

 

 

PE KIT

PE will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays and every child is expected to have a full PE kit which consists of a t-shirt, shorts, trousers, jumper and trainers or daps. Please ensure every item is labelled with your child's name as many children are the same size and have kit from the same shop -  it can be very difficult to tell who owns lost property!

This term we will have visitors from Bath Rugby FC teaching us about healthy eating. We are learning about food groups including some of the foods that fit within them and how they help our bodies. We will also have an active rugby session to learn skills fpr the sport.
