Welcome to Year 3
This is the children’s first year in Key Stage 2 (KS2) and as part of this important transition we encourage them to become more independent and responsible for their learning and behaviour.
The children will go swimming every Tuesday afternoon at Milton Road from September 2019 to February 2020. We understand that this is a new experience for some children and it will be a pleasure to watch their confidence grow and swimming skills develop. Swimming is a part of the National Curriculum and encourage the children to attend all possible sessions. Please note that we rely entirely on volunteers both within the school and parent helpers for this to happen each week. (DBS check forms are available from the school office)
At RLK the challenge is to read for pleasure at home five times every week and get their Reading Records signed by their parent/carer. Their reward for achieving this will be decided by the children each week – only children who complete the challenge will take part in the reward. We encourage healthy competition at RLK so we also have a lower KS2 reading cup and a whole school attendance award that is given out weekly in the celebration assembly.
Additionally, we will set topic related homework and a times tables and spelling test is usually carried out on a Friday. Please ask if you would like to know how your child is progressing in these areas.
An overview of each term’s learning, weekly spellings and homework will be added to this section of the RLK website so please keep checking back for all the latest news.
We look forward to working with you all over the coming year. If anyone would like to support us in school at any point in the year we would welcome the help.
