St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 3

Our Year 3 classes are 3 Norway and 3 Sweden.

PE
PE for 3 Sweden and 3 Norway will be on Mondays. Children should come to school in school uniform as usual with their full PE kit in their bags. If you have any trouble at all with PE kit, please do speak to one of us or the office.

Spellings
Please find spellings for this half term as a downloadable document below. Each week we typically follow a spelling rule for the first 10 'core' spellings and the remaining 'extension' spellings (which are optional) recycle old spellings and introduce topic words or words that will be encountered in our main text.

Reading
As part of their homework, please ensure your child reads every day and that it is noted in their reading journal. This is increasingly important as the demands of the curriculum increase throughout Key Stage 2, with children expected to sustain reading over longer and longer pieces of text.

Maths homework
An exercise sheet handed out each Friday and to be returned by the following Wednesday.

Twitter
We will continue to tweet celebrations and news from our Twitter account. Please note the year 3 twitter feed is: @St_JamesYear3.

A note on trips
We welcome parents and carers to accompany us on trips. Please mention it at least two days in advance to your child's class teacher if at all possible, in order for us to arrange staffing.

We endeavour to give as much notice as possible for trips, but in some cases we are offered tickets to other exciting opportunities at the last minute. Your understanding is appreciated.
