Welcome to Year 3!
Please see below some general information about expectations in Year 3.
Our PE days are Tuesday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor). Children are to remove any stud earrings before coming to school on a PE day or be able to remove the earrings themselves before their PE lesson (staff are not allowed to remove earrings). Children should have a full named PE kit in school every day. They will need a bag containing PE shorts, PE T-shirt, plimsolls or trainers, tracksuit bottoms/joggers for cold weather The school office are selling new Milton Hall PE bags for £3.50 if you need a new one.
The school has very high expectations of behaviour. We will continue to use the Good to Be Green system for behaviour and all children should aim to have green cards by the end of each week which transfer into points and can be spent on the Good to be Green trolley or saved up for a trip to Adventure Island. Yellow and red cards are given out if behaviour is not of the high standard that we expect. In addition, this year the school have introduced a merit system so merits will be awarded for standards of presentation, achieving personal targets, academic achievements, effort etc. Team points will also be awarded for following the schools Golden Rules working towards a “Team Reward” at the end of each half term.
Please make sure you have the correct uniform. The only jewellery that is acceptable is a pair of stud earrings and a watch. All other jewellery must be removed for school. All jewellery must be removed by the children themselves for PE. Jogging bottoms are for PE and children should be wearing school trousers/skirts at other times. Girls may wear leggings under a skirt but not on their own. Children may choose to wear a green fleece, jumper or cardigan in the winter. Please remember that we have a pre-loved uniform shop weekly that sells items of second hand uniform for between 50p and £1.
If you are worried about something or have any questions or concerns, please come and speak to us. We want your children to be happy in school and we will try our best to answer your questions and offer support.
Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school the following Wednesday (if English based homework) and Friday (MyMaths)
Each week, Year 3 children will be set:
If homework has been completed before Wednesday, you are welcome to send it into school earlier but it is advisable to make a note of the spelling so your child can continue to practise at home. The children will shortly be given access to Times Table Rock Stars and further information about this will follow shortly. Please see your child's class teacher if there is a problem with any homework tasks.
The school runs homework clubs so if you are struggling to find the time to get it done then you can come along and have some time and space to concentrate.
STEAM homework is set once per half term and the due date will be decided by the class teacher. Parents may be invited in to see all children's STEAM homework so it's always best to complete the STEAM homework to the best of your ability.
Reading records should be reading for 15 minutes every day including weekends and holidays. If there is any vocabulary that you do not understand please write it down in your reading record and look it up when you come into school.
Those children on Accelerated Reader, will be given daily opportunities to complete their quiz and build up their points. These points accumulate and achievements are celebrated in “Reading Assemblies”. Children are responsible for changing their own books when they are finished to ensure they have a book to take home every night.
Each class has been given a charity to support this year. If you have any spare change, please bring it in for our collection tin!
