Welcome back Year 3! I hope that you have had a fantastic summer break and that you are ready to start a new year in Class 3. We have a very busy but exciting year ahead! The year will begin with us looking at The Stone Age and The Bronze Age. Read on to find out just some of the wonderful things that we will be learning about during the Autumn term.

Year 3 will have PE on a Friday with SuperStars. There will be plenty of opportunities for sport during the Autumn Term, so PE kits should be brought to school on a Monday and remain here until Friday each week.
Homework is set on a Thursday and should be returned every Monday. Homework may be a consolidation of tricky topics covered in class throughout the week, a research task to prepare for new concepts or a personalised activity to help your child in achieving their targets. Please encourage your child to attempt their homework and please feel free to add a note if your child found the task difficult (and required your support) or if you noticed they were particularly confident with the topic.
Talk Homework will help you to prepare for your Big Write each week. Please spend 5-10 minutes chatting with a family member at home in order to feel more confident about your written task the following day.
Remember that you can always upload your homework to Showbie. Your child's login details for this can be found inside the cover of their blue homework diary.
Blue homework diaries should be brought in to school every day and placed in the black labeled box. When your child reads aloud at home, please add a brief note (in the small blue book) detailing the date and the page they have reached.
Dojo's will be awarded to children for completing all homework tasks and reading each evening at home.
Extra Dojos will also be awarded for times tables, spellings and handwriting practice. Please find your child's personal login details for Times Table Rock Stars, Educational City and Reading Theory inside the cover of their blue homework diary.
Remember to keep checking Twitter @WalfordPrimary for regular updates about what Class 3 have been up to.
