Here is an overview of our learning for the Autumn term: 

Year 3 Non Core Subjects Autumn

Our Class Saint is: St John Henry Newman

St John Henry Newmans Feast Day : 9th October

Patron Saint of Poets

St John Henry Newman fulfilled his mission to love God and serve others during his lifetime. Following his example, children can become missionaries of God’s love, too.

P.E

PE will take place on a Friday afternoon for Kingfisher class. For indoor lessons, children wear a plain white t-shirt, navy blue shorts and black PE pumps. PE lessons may take place outdoors and the children will therefore need an outdoor kit kept in school at all times. Children may wear plain navy blue tracksuit trousers, a navy blue jumper, plain white t-shirt and trainers for outdoor lessons. The outdoor kit is optional however trainers are necessary. PE kit must stay in school and will be sent home at half term to be washed. If a child regularly does not have their PE kit in school on their PE day then it will affect their position on ALWAYS.

Please ensure that ALL items of clothing including pumps are labelled with your child’s name.

Homework

All homework will be set on a  Monday at 4pm and is due in for the following Sunday by 4pm. It allows him/her to do some each night or all in one night. Homework is checked on Monday morning and is a school requirement therefore may affect your child staying on 'Always'.

Homework is set on Google Classrooms which can be accessed via numerous devices (laptop, computer, tablet/ipad, phone, xbox). Work can be returned as a typed document. Alternatively, children will also be provided with an exercise book to keep at home which may be used to complete work and then a photo uploaded to Google Classrooms. The logins will remain the same and the children will be reminded.

All of Kingfishers logins to access all of the platforms can be found on the inside page of their Home Reading Record.

Reading

As well as set homework, your child should also spend time at home reading. He/she will bring home a book from school. This book must be read as your child will have been assessed and set to match their reading band age.

Each child will also recieve a reading record. The record should be filled in every time the child reads at home (minimum 4 x per week). The children should make notes about what they have read each week. This can be signed by parents/carers however children can also write in how much is read to document.

Spellings

Children will be assessed and placed into groups for their spellings lessons. Spelling lessons will take place in the mornings and a spelling test will take place every Monday. Spellings are best learnt little and often rather than all the night before.

Times Tables

Your child should also regularly practise their times tables up to 12 times tables. To help with maths progress, they must know all their tables with confidence and be able to recall them rapidly. On Google Classroom Kingfisher have links they can access with times table songs, quizzes and games which we look at in class so they are familiar with. The same links are attached below. It is important to include repetition into our times tables, as well as making it fun for Kingfisher - which they have proven to really enjoy!
