Kingfisher and Robin
Welcome to Year 3 and Key Stage 2!
Welcome to another exciting year at Shiphay Learning Academy! This year is a big transition for the children as they move from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two and we are sure you’ll endeavour to support your child in their continued learning. We are delighted to inform you that the children have made a very pleasing start to the year and we are confident this will continue.
In Key Stage Two we like to encourage the children to continue to grow in confidence and independence. Children in Y3 are expected to read daily, practise their spelling skills daily and learn their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 & 10 times tables by heart. 'Topmarks' is a fantastic website to support this, alongside Times Tables Rockstars.
Spelling words will be set weekly, via Google classroom, so they can apply them in their writing.
All types of reading is beneficial to your child; whether you are listening to their reading book, library book, sharing a book or reading to them. Try to read with your child for twenty minutes every day. Reading records will be sent home daily, please sign their reading records and add any comments about how your child has read.
Year Three will have PE lessons every Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit on this days. PE kits can be left in school for the half term.
We will use our class page to communicate information to you over the course of this academic year. The class page will be updated, via the tabs below, with key information, photographs and examples of work. We look forward to a happy and productive relationship with you over the coming year.
