Welcome to Year 3!
Homework will be reading at least three times a week and extra activities will be given out on a Monday for that week and can be found on the school web-site ‘https://www.stbeesvillage.cumbria.sch.uk/classes/year-3/year-3-homework’. It will cover work completed in the previous week or planned for that week. Most homework activities will be set online, on EducationCity, TTRockstars, Spelling Shed or MyMaths. Your child will bring home details of how they can login, but if you have any issues, please do not hesitate to contact me. Alternatively, some weeks, your child will be set a practical activity or game using everyday items.
All homework is not compulsory each week, but it is designed to support our learning in class. However, please do not try to cram in all activities and extra work at home to the detriment of other activities, such as clubs etc. As sometimes busy life styles can get in the way and I would much rather your child go to swimming, dancing, cubs, beavers, rainbows or other social and sporting outlets than cramming in all homework tasks, so please just do as much as you can with a good balance.
For submitting your homework, I will be notified when you have completed online learning tasks and please post all other tasks to our portfolio page on Class Dojo.
I would like to keep printing to a minimum, however if you do not have access to the internet or printing, then please let me know if you would like a paper copy of the homework.
Reading folders and new reading books will be given out each Friday to return to school on the following Friday to allow new books to be set. Please ensure your child brings their reading folder into school each Friday ready for change over.
When is PE?
PE will be taught by Mr. Dawson on a Wednesday afternoon, so please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on this day each week. Please also make sure they have an extra warm layer of clothing, for outdoor sessions and a pair of trainers. Please remember to tie long hair up and remove (or cover) any earrings or jewellery to avoid injury or loss of valuable objects.
Joining the Juniors Update
Now that your child is growing so fast and starting their journey in the juniors there are a few changes to keep in mind. In the juniors, break time is now slightly later at 10:25 - 10:40am and their is no extra break time in the afternoon (Sorry, maybe you should stop growing). Fruit and milk will no longer be provided at morning break in the juniors, so it would be beneficial if you provided your child with a healthy snack for our morning break time. For example, a piece of fruit, raisin box or a cereal bar. Lastly, the children will now go out to play first at dinner time and eat afterwards. So this snack would bridge this gap. As you have all seen, our door for coming into and out of school for home time is the lower junior door by the PE Shed, next to the hall.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email or on Class Dojo.
