We will practise them regularly in class using games and activities.
The children need to practise them at home using Times Table Rock Stars.
These websites are also useful:
The children will be taught to use the continuous cursive handwriting style. They will learn the correct formation of each letter in class.

The children will be exposed to a range of quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts in class. They need to read as often and as widely as possible at home.
Recommended reading list for year 3:
Our class saint is St Therese of Lisieux. We will learn about her life and how we can be like her.
There will be parents’ evenings in the Autumn and Spring terms. In the Summer term, parents will receive a written report.
The children can collect house points for effort, work and behaviour. Each half term, the house with the most house points will have a non-uniform day.
Each half term, we have an enrichment afternoon, when the children will be able to choose a special activity to take part in. Activities change each time and range from sports to art to drama.
On your child’s birthday, we ask that they do not bring sweets for their friends, but if they would like to donate a book to the class for the book corner instead, then it would be greatly appreciated. They can also come to school in their own clothes on their birthday, or on the nearest school day if their birthday falls at the weekend.
Please come and see us if you have any information, questions or concerns regarding your child.
