We are looking forward to welcoming Year 3 back to school on Monday 8th March
The normal routine will resume with a staggered start and end to the day.
In these first few weeks we will be focusing on social skills and getting to know one another again.
We also plan to centre the curriculum around books and stories. Activities will be shorter to begin with, with more time spent outside for learning and play.
We will all (both classes) be doing Forest School every Thursday morning for the rest of term, so please make sure that you keep wellies in school - thank you!
We will gradually assess where the children are with their learning and focus on key skills and concepts that they will need going forward.
Prehistory Day now happening on Wednesday 10th March.
Our Prehistory activity day will be full of hands-on experiences to close our topic. We will travel through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. If possible we would love you to come dressed up in a simple, practical, themed costume.
We are looking forward to seeing you all!
All the Year 3 Teaching Team

Spellings will be tested on a Monday and new spellings will be sent home on the same day. Please ensure that your child remembers to bring in their folder.
Times tables will be tested on a Wednesday and new times tables will be sent home on a Friday.
If you have any questions, please ask!
At the beginning of the Spring Term pupils will once again complete a Star test, where they have to read various questions and choose the correct answer. This allows us to to see where the children are with their reading and comprehension skills.
The assessment will give us an update of the zone of proximal development of each pupil's reading skills . For example; 1.6 - 2.6. You may find that the children bring home books that might seem a little easy for them but we have to start the children at the lowest end of the zone. Once your child has read their book and feels ready toanswer questions about it's content, they will be able to take a quiz in school which will then assess their reading and understanding of what they have read. If the children score 90% or more, they will move to the next level. The children will get a chance to quiz every day so you will find that the children move up levels quite quickly.
If you have any queries about this then please don't hesitate to contact us.
