Welcome to our Year 3 Pupil Page!

Hello, welcome to the year three page of our website.  Year three is a fantastic year at Highwoods.  It’s our first year in KS2 and there are some changes to the school day.  We are lucky enough to do forest school this year and we go on some brilliant trips.  Our teachers are Mrs Costanzo and Miss Chapman.  We also have Ms Munford, Miss White, Mrs Hunt and Mrs Williams  to help us in our learning, as well as lots of other adults in school. Check back regularly to see what we get up to as the year goes by…

Homework

Maths and Spelling homework is set every Friday and should be completed by the following Friday.

All of our homework is online.  You will need to use the following websites to complete your homework:

Timestable Rockstars: https://ttrockstars.com

This is the same account as the children were using during year two.  It’s easiest to use via the app.

Spelling Frame: https://spellingframe.co.uk

The children’s spelling homework is now on this site.  There is a selection of words every week selected specifically for them.

They can select their spellings by logging onto the site, then choosing to practice or test.  They must complete one test per week as their homework but can do more if they’d like or play the games.

Useful Information

Reading

Parents, thank you for your continued support with reading at home. Remember, 3 adult signed entries in the children’s reading records entitle your child to being a ‘Star Reader’  for the week.

Reading regularly with your child is so important, as it not only improves your child’s reading fluency but it builds their vocabulary, aids their creativity when writing, improves their spelling and develops their general knowledge. Most of all, it is an enjoyable way to spend quality time with your child at the end of a busy day.

PE Days

Indoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon – Indoor PE kit is shorts and a house colour t-shirt.

Outside PE is on a Friday afternoon – Children will need a jumper, t-shirt,  jogging bottoms, socks and trainers.

Please remember that hair must be tied back and earrings removed for PE.

Forest Schools

In Year 3, we have an amazing opportunity to take part in Forest Schools once a week. This is a great chance to learn new skills and interact with each other outside of the classroom.

Each group will spend 6 weeks attending Forest Schools, before changing to allow other children to attend.

Our Forest School afternoon will be Monday for those children who are selected.
