This term Year 3 will be going swimming every Thursday at Parkside Swimming Pool. We will be walking to and from the Pool and a big thank you to those parents who have volunteered to help us with that task. It is important that every day that children arrive to school before 8.55 to be able to start their day promptly but this is especially important on days when we have swimming. Could you also please ensure that your child brings their PE kit in every Wednesday for a session run by Premier Sport.
During the term, we are planning a number of trips including visits to the Botanic Garden, Clare College and mostly likely to Queens’ College, the Maison Clement and another “Rain in the Desert” church trip. More information about each trip will be given near to the time. We will also hopefully be arranging for a performance poet to visit to support our work on poetry.
Homework is given out every Thursday and is due to be in by Wednesday. Reading Record books are also collected in each Wednesday and given back by the end of the day. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those parents who have invested time talking to their children about their reading to develop higher reading skills such as inference of a character’s feelings with reference to the text. If you wish to do any further additional study at home, you may wish to improve your child’s knowledge of their times tables or their ability at mathematical reasoning. To improve their fluency at times tables and other areas of mathematics your may wish to use the http://www.mathletics.co.uk/ website. You could also try some of the less orthodox problems set on the http://nrich.maths.org/ or the http://wild.maths.org/ websites.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to come and see me. I am available to talk at the end of the day; if this is not convenient for you, please send in a note with your child or call the school office to make an appointment.
