Year 3 Newsletter 3 Summer Term 1
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely Easter break.
Our learning this half term is around the Traditional Native American tale ‘Dirty Clothes’ and this relates to self- care and wellbeing, oral hygiene and the workings of the digestive system. We will also be looking into the history of these indigenous people and living peacefully amongst nature. We will be creating some lovely traditional crafts and drumming rhythms also.
Thank you to those parents and carers who attended parents meetings. If you did not manage to make it please arrange a new appointment with me so I can update you as to your child’s progress.
Planners and Reading Books
It is really important that your child reads regularly at home and brings their reading books and planners in every day so we can log their progress. I understand some planners have now been lost or fallen apart so I will be creating temporary log sheets to track reading between home and school in their place.
If your child has not read at home 3 times a week by Friday they will have chance to read extra during Golden Time to ensure progress in this key skill.
Please support your child and encourage them to undertake homework. Your child will receive a Homework Grid each half term with points to earn for tasks. Each week your child will have a set of spellings to learn and a times table grid or short maths task. These will be given out on a Monday and need to be returned on a Friday. 2 points will be given for each that is completed. Your child will be given a target to achieve and if they put in the effort to achieve this, they will receive a small prize.
Your child will need their PE kit in school all the time. Their main P.E days are now Tuesday and Thursday however these can change so please ensure kits are in every day.

Thank you for your continued support this half term and going forward.
