Swimming, PE and Games
All kit is required to be in on a Monday for 3M.
Girls will need a one piece costume, a swimming hat, a towel and a hair bobble for their hair. If the children wear earrings then they must be taken out before they are allowed to swim.
Boys will require swimming trunks (not shorts) and a towel. If they have longer hair a hat will also be required.
All equipment should be named, if possible, and kept in a named bag which will be kept in the cloakroom. We advise the swimming bag to go home every Friday after your child has swum. Verruca socks should be worn if needed. Hats and Verruca socks can be bought from the office.
Indoor P.E kit will still be required each week for our gymnastics sessions, if possible a outdoor PE kit should be available if we decide to go out for an extra Games slot.
Year 3 have been set a challenge to read as many times in the Spring term.
The children will earn a special certificate depending on how many times they read.
Platinum – 150 times
Gold – 100 times
Silver – 50 times
Bronze – 25 times
Commended – 10 times
Let’s work together to encourage reading!
You will be given two pieces of homework every week, to be completed by the following Monday. The homework will be both Mathletics and Spelling/ Handwriting practice.
You will also be asked to complete at least two pieces of topic homework every half term. It is up to you which activities you choose to complete! Please see the below link for the homework grid for The Romans.
There will be a weekly times table and spelling test every Friday. Children are expected to learn their times tables at home, however their spellings are done in class
