Please can parents encourage their child to read at least three times a week (ideally every day). Reading records (within the children's Reading Diaries) are to be signed by parents when the child has read and this will be monitored in school.

Romans - Monsters and Machines
This term, we will be delving into the past to see how Romans lived, fought and ate! Part of our work will see children taking part in battle sequences, exploring art such as mosaics and learning about how different Romans would go about their daily lives.
As the term progresses, we will be investigating Italy and enjoying a lovely geographical focus on this country and all it has to offer.
Each week, children will receive Maths Home Learning to be completed in the workbook. You will find the page number they need to complete in the front of the workbook. In addition, children will be expected to learn their weekly spellings and read every night.
Once per term, a project homework will be set.
Please note - Reading, spelling sand weekly timestables will run alongside this homework
New Spellings will be given out on a half termly basis and children will be tested every other Friday.

This term, we will be continuing to develop our calculation skills across the 4 operations, particularly multiplication and division. Please continue to practise multiplication tables, as this recall is a vital skill for our children. We will also cover time this term, so please encourage your child to read both analogue and digital clocks.
PE Sessions take place on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings.
Please can you ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school for these days as well as long hair tied back. For safety reasons, jewellery is not to be worn during PE lessons, therefore could you please ensure your child is able to remove it independently before the lesson or have it removed before coming into school.
Year 3 Recorder Sessions take place on Friday afternoons.
Children in Toucan class and half of Flamingo class will go swimming for 10 weeks starting Thursday 11th January. These children have been notified.
Does your child wear a watch? Can they tell the time? This year, we are going to make this important skill our priority and any experience/help they get at home would be really beneficial, thankyou!
