Welcome to Year 3!
This is the children’s first year in Key Stage 2 (Lower KS2) and as part of this important transition we encourage them to become more independent and responsible for their learning and behaviour.
Our topics this year include:
- Savage Stone Age
· Amazing Animals
· Romans – What did the Romans do for us?
· Plants & pollination
· What was life like for a child living in the Victorian times?
· Violent Volcanoes
An overview of each term’s learning, weekly spellings and any future homework will be added to this section of the RLK website and Purple Mash so please keep checking back for all the latest news.
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 an award for reading in the celebration assembly. Reading records and spelling test will usually be on a Friday. Please ask if you would like to know how your child is
progressing in these areas.
Homework is based entirely within Purple Mash. Tasks for each term will be shared on the website and displayed in classroom windows.
During Year 3 the children will usually attend swimming lessons at Milton Road. 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 we 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)
School swimming lessons will start in April and continue in May 2022.
Please check Parentmail for any updates.
Trips and Visits
We hope to restart school trips and invite visitors into school this year. We will be following the latest guidance on this moving forward. Please look out for more information via Parentmail.
