In 3A we do Games on a Tuesday and PE on a Friday.
All of the children's kit is kept in school but will be sent home with your child at the end of each half term. Please make sure it is washed and returned for the start of the new half term.
At Carr Junior School, we encourage the children to read everyday. Every morning, the children's planners are checked to see if they have read and if they have read, they get to move up on our Reading Chart. Once all of the children in the class have reached 10, they get a reward. Planners are also checked for reading on a weekly basis, if the children have read 5 times or more in a week, they get a sticker on their reward chart.
These will be sent home every Tuesday with your child, lending them the opportunity to practise at home daily in
preparation for the weekly spelling test on a Monday afternoon.
TT Rockstars is used in Year 3 for the children to practice their timestables. This online system enables children to practise their timetables by completing online maths games to develop their knowledge and speed of solving time tables problems. Children have passwords in the front of their planners for them to use at home We ask, if possible, for children to practice at home, at least 3 times a week, for around 10 minutes each time. If your child can't access this at home, they can attend the TT Rockstars Common Room on any lunch time. In school, we complete a paper test 3 times a week related to the questions on TT Rockstars.
We kindly ask that at least 2 pieces of homework from the homework grid to be completed every half term. The grid will change depending on the topic.
Homework Club is on a Monday after school, this can be signed up to through ParentPay.
If you have any questions regarding any homework please don't hesitate to ask me.
