Mrs Sworeń, Mrs Kenny and Miss Hodson
welcome you to Year 3.
Please keep checking our pages regularly to see what we have been getting up to, as we would like share our exciting learning journey with you! You will also find links to some useful websites and games at the bottom of this page that will really help support your child's learning.
Our school day starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:05pm.
English, Maths and Reading are taught daily. Please scroll down to see the full curriculum your child will be taught this year, along with a more detailed topic web for this half term.
Reading books will be sent home and children will be expected to choose their own book. The books will be at the level your child is reading at. You can help your child by reading with them and asking them about what is happening in the book. If parents and carers could please sign reading diaries and write the title of their book in the children's diaries this can be checked at school.
Please practise the times tables at home with your child. Children are expected to use Times Table Rockstars for 3-5 minutes each day at home (if they have access), as research has shown that little and often is more effective than a longer session a few times a week. Children will be tested on their times tables each week.
P.E. will take place on Monday morning and Yoga is on Tuesday morning. Please make sure your child's P.E. kit is clearly labelled. Their P.E. kit needs to remain at school and only taken home every half term for washing unless it has become very dirty.
Weekly homework will be set on a Friday. It will usually be either on MyMaths or Purple Mash. MyMaths and Purple Mash can be accessed using laptops, computers, tablets and mobile phones. This will need to be completed and handed in online by the following Wednesday. If children have no access to the internet a paper version will be provided. Please see the homework folder below for more information each week.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at EMYear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk or phone the school office.
