Weekly Reminders

Monday – Spellings and Times Tables

Spellings and times tables will take place every Monday. Every week, children will bring these home to learn for the following week. Please support your child with these at home. (Topmarks – Hit the Button is a brilliant game children can play online to support their Maths learning!)

Tuesday and Thursday – PE

Our PE unit for this half term (Spring 1) is rugby. As we will be outdoors, it is fine for children to wear tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie/ sweater.

We also ask that your child spends at least ten minutes a day reading at home to support their reading in school. They should bring their reading book back into school each day.

We appreciate all of your help and support. As always, should you have any uestions or queries, do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 3 Team.
