               PE Kits and Times

 

PE kits should be in school every day of the week as occasionally PE times can change. Alongside the school PE kit, we suggest that your child brings in tracksuit bottoms and a warm jumper as the weather begins to change. 

 

The school policy also states that children must have long hair tied back and earrings taken out. No jewellery can be worn during PE. All items should be clearly named please.  3GH are timetabled to have indoor PE on Monday afternoon and outdoor PE on Wednesday afternoon. 3T will have PE on Friday afternoon.

 

 

               Water Bottles

 

Children should bring a labelled water bottle to school every day to ensure that they are drinking enough.  These will be kept in the classroom and must only be filled with water please.

 

   Pencil Cases

 

The children do not need to have pencil cases or their own pencils, pens and rubbers All the equipment needed will be provided by school and this ensures personal belongings are not lost or damaged.

 

 

Reading

The children in Year 3 should read at home every day. We expect the children to complete between 1 and 2 AR tests each week.  Reading books and logs should be in school every day, don’t forget to sign them to show you have read!  Don’t forget Busters Book Club every Wednesday!

Mathletics

Please log on to Mathletics as many times as you can…… practise what you find hard and compete against others in Mathletics live!

Homework      

Homework will be given out on Thursday and must be returned to school by Wednesday. Please remind the children that there is a homework club every Tuesday lunch time - all children are welcome! The homework will continue to consist of a spelling task and a selection of activities from which the children can choose 1 task from each week.

If you have any questions about your child’s learning please do come and talk to us after school, we will be more than happy to answer your questions.
