General Information: Now that the weather is getting colder please could you make sure that the children have a warm coat to wear and suitable black school shoes.
PE: Both 3O and 3G have P.E on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that the PE kit you provide your child is suitable for them to wear outside during cold weather.
TOPIC: Next half term our theme will be Ancient Egypt. In science we will be learning about light and shadows. Our year group assembly will be on Friday 29th November 2013.
MATHS: We feel the best support you can give at home is to regularly test your child's times tables and number bonds (numbers that go together to total 10, 20 or 100).
ENGLISH: Please listen to your child reading daily. We would also encourage discussion of what they have read. You can best support your child's spelling by testing them and checking that they are learning by using look, say, cover, write and then check.
HOME LEARNING: The children will be set regular home learning activities from the Education City website. They will usually have 2 weeks to complete the activities. We will also on occasion set other home learning tasks on a Friday. Please check your children's book bags regularly.
Please could you ensure that library books are kept in the children's book bags and brought with them to school each day so that the children can choose new books. The new library system will not allow your child to change books until books are returned or replaced.
Your child will be looking at the importance of relationships and friendships, and developing their awareness of and ability to form and maintain healthy relationships. This includes the ability to value and empathise with others, manage conflict and recognise how we affect and are affected by others. They will learn about the importance of recognising and valuing both similarities and differences between themselves and other children, including understanding that people live in different family arrangements. They will revisit their networks of special people, identifying those they can talk to about their concerns and how to get support in situations involving friendships and relationships.
Have a look at the work being done by the Numbers Count program in Years 2 and 3!
